Best Buy Mobile to open its doors March 20 inside Peachtree Mall

Electronics retailer Best Buy has set a March 20 opening date for its new specialty store inside Peachtree Mall.

The Best Buy Mobile outlet — which does not replace the larger free-standing store next door to the mall — will sell a variety of mobile devices, including phones, tablets, eReaders and accessories, the company said Tuesday.

Special promotions will be offered the first week the store is open, it said, while the retailer plans to donate $2,000 to a local school or public library.

Best Buy Mobile is locating at the corner of the food court at Peachtree Mall, in 1,000 square feet of space formerly occupied by Classic Cookie and Coffee Beanery. The cookie outlet is relocating elsewhere in the food court, while the coffee shop closed.

This will be the 12th Best Buy Mobile store in Georgia, with the Richfield, Minn.-based company operating 410 nationwide.

Peachtree Mall is located at 3131 Manchester Expressway in Columbus.
