Electronics and appliance retailer Best Buy will open its relocated Lancaster store Friday, Oct. 19, taking a spot in the Red Rose Commons shopping center previously occupied by HHGregg.
Now located near Lowe’s at 1801 Hempstead Road, Best Buy will close that store Oct. 14 as it moves to 1700 Fruitville Pike, where it will join a shopping center that includes Home Depot, Weis Markets and Barnes & Noble.
The new Best Buy also will be across Fruitville Pike from The Shoppes at Belmont, a shopping center anchored by Target, Whole Foods and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
For Best Buy, the move reduces the size of its Lancaster store from 46,000 square feet to 32,000 square feet. The new space for Best Buy was originally occupied by Circuit City, an electronics retailer that closed all its U.S. stores in 2009.
Best Buy opened in Lancaster in October 2009. The property on Hempstead Road was bought in June 2016 by the real estate arm of Blackstone, a New York-based private equity firm.
