The biggest electronic retailer in the U.S. is doubling its presence in Tulare County, California. With the addition of its second Dinuba-based facility, Best Buy Co. Inc. will own and operate some 1,040,000 square feet of storage and distribution space on Monte Vista Drive. Construction on the Dinuba addition began last November. Tulare County's job growth rate, amongst the top in the nation, will receive an additional boost in the form of 117 full-time jobs at the distribution center over the next three years, said Connie Stelter, a spokesperson from Best Buy's Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based corporate headquarters.
