Online sales have skyrocketed 250%. About half have come through curbside pickup orders and the rest through orders shipped to homes.

Best Buy will furlough 51,000 store employees in the U.S., or about 40% of its total workforce, as its stores remain closed aside from curbside pickup.

The Richfield-based retailer's sales were up 4% heading into stay-at-home orders because of the coronavirus pandemic - and surged 25% in one mid-March week as consumers prepared to hunker down and rushed to buy computers, keyboards, webcams and freezers.
