« Growing top-line sales will give us a huge lift. I don’t like negative sales. … Our huge opportunity
is to turn the corner in same-store sales.  »

Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly

« Amazon is an amazing success story, and you always respect success. But they have not taken share from Best Buy. You have to salute Amazon, but [the company] is not an existential threat to us. »

« What's the purpose of being global? Retail is not necessarily a global business. Is it a strategic advantage or is it just a collection of countries? »

« Did I ever tell you about my bicycle theory? When you stand still, you fall oFf the bicycle. But if you keep pedAling, you may not go the right direction, but at least you can turn. »
