I walked up to Best Buy in Bossier Friday night at 7:09 p.m. I desperately needed to pick up some protection for my iPad, imagine my surprise when I saw that the store that once closed at 9:00 p.m. was closing 2 hours earlier than normal.

I Called the Best Buy in Shreveport and Found Out They Were Closed Too.

Keep in mind I was desperate to get this screen on my iPad before a big event the next day. So I decided to call the Best Buy in Longview, Texas as well, I was okay with a 45-minute drive, I was desperate for this item. No answer.
