Best Buy opens at 10 a.m. Saturday — just in time for the holiday shopping rush.
The store, located near Fred Meyer in the East Lake Center plaza along East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast, stretches across almost 40,000 square feet.
The store offers familiar Best Buy services, including the Geek Squad tech support team.
Best Buy started hiring employees for the store in early October.
The store occupies the former La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries and Pacific Fabrics spaces. In February, Best Buy — headquartered in Richfield, Minn. — announced plans to open a store in Issaquah. La-Z-Boy closed in June.
