The only time I checked was when I bought my last TV a few months ago. Their price was $430 more than Best Buy and $210 more than Amazon. They refused to price match, but said the could cut the price $200. I went to Best Buy.

@loubriccant: Hard to believe they can stay in business with that type of attitude.

@jimmyd103: It was awful, because the whole time they made me feel like I was being unreasonable. I just said "look, I can get the TV for $1,089 a few mile up the street, you're a little closer, just match it and we have a deal". A month or so later when I was buying a new AV receiver, they had it for $130 more than Amazon, but I didn't even bother. I can't imagine they will be around long.

@jimmyd103: Good question, as I have never been in one ,and they opened 5 in Pittsburgh with I believe today to be the Grand Opening celebration. I usually "shop" Best Buy, then "purchase" from amazon. I will check them out to see their "deals".

@unoriginal26: Yeah I also got the Grand Opening Flyer in this mornings Post Gazette.

@jimmyd103: There was a write-up in my local paper that they were going to be expanding around here in Florida. I get their flyers in the local Sunday newspaper, and I have not seen prices on anything I was looking for or even if I wasn't in the market for at what I considered bargains. It does remind me of the fact that I often shopped Circuit City and rarely bought anything from them. Coincidentally, HHGregg is currently occupying an abandoned circuit city store, and I have always thought "how appropriate"

@klozitshoper: Same here in Maryland. They took over many of the old Circuit City stores and turned them into tacky looking eyesores.

They are opening one not to far from me in a suburb of chicago. But what I am reading doesnt look like I will be buying from them.

I was shopping for a 32" TV and a model I liked was on sale for $28 less than at Walmart and Amazon. Walmart is closer so I took in the HHGregg flyer and they price matched it for me. However, it sounds like it's usually overpriced so this may have just been an exception.

I bought my laptop from them. They've been in my city for several years. Were they the cheapest you ask... No, but they price matched Staples and gave me 10% of the difference. I did the same thing with a small TV my mom wanted, price matched to "Worst Buy" when it went on sale the same week I bought it for her. I marched right back in there with the ad and they gave me the difference. Their policy states "Low Price guarantee. With our Price Guarantee, you won't pay more for the great service you get at hhgregg. If you know of a lower price on anything we sell, we’ll beat it by 10% of the difference."

I've browsed there on a few occasions, but only purchased one item there (a Blu-ray player) because I checked the price against Amazon and other stores, and HH Gregg turned out to be cheaper.

I got a washer and dryer there the week before Black Friday. The same set was $600 more at Sears, and $400 more at Lowes. I guess they are hit and miss - you just have to hit the right deal on the right day.

My experience is that all of the retailers will price match. I've done that at Sears but have never attempted at Best/Worst Buy. And Walmart will even price match online deals I think.

IN the past 24 hours, I have seen them advertising on TV a lot. I never actually remember seeing anything on the local channels prior to now.Maybe I will check it out tomorrow
