I need to identify a decision/plan that has recently been made by Best Buy or will be made in the near future. I also need help in identifying two relevant and two non-relevant costs in this decision.
If you cannot identify specific actual amounts using the data, then please submit a reasonable estimate and apply the tool as if the data were factual.
