Best Buy was able to post record-high revenues and earnings in 2021, though the road ahead for the consumer electronics retailer isn’t necessarily smooth. Fourth-quarter 2021 sales declined year over year in the U.S. as supply-chain issues and the continuing decline in popularity of in-person shopping dogged the company. More than 20 brick-and-mortar Best Buy stores closed last year, and more are expected to shut down in 2022. Still, Best Buy has had success in expanding its e-commerce and online shopping offerings; nearly 40% of the company’s domestic revenue now comes from e-commerce.
