Best Buy Moves 2,000 Loss-Prevention Workers to Sales

Best Buy Co., trying to reverse slumping store sales, is reassigning about 2,000 loss-prevention employees in its U.S. locations to focus on selling customers more merchandise.

Employees who greeted shoppers entering Best Buy’s big-box stores and checked receipts when they left will join the ranks of the company’s blue-shirted sales force, Kelly Groehler, a spokeswoman for the Richfield, Minnesota-based company, said yesterday. No workers are being fired, she said.
