Cao Holds Talks with Best Buy Representatives over Expansion Opportunities in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Anh "Joseph" Cao (LA-02) held talks with representatives of Best Buy Co., Inc. over the consumer electronics retailer's interest in opening new stores in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish.

Cao encouraged Best Buy to pursue expansion opportunities in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes, particulary New Orleans East, where recovery from Katrina has been slow.

The Congressman assured Best Buy it can count on the full support and cooperation of his office for any effort the chain might make to open a new store anywhere in Louisiana's second Congressional District.

The Best Buy delegation expressed its appreciation to Cao for the Congressman's assistance as company executives continue to scout out potential new store sites.

Cao said, "Best Buy accounts for nearly 20 percent of the retail consumer electronics market in the United States. Having more stores in our area would be a terrific boost to the local economy, and I'm especially excited about the possibility of bringing another Best Buy to New Orleans East."
