WalMart Takes On Geek Squad With New Technical Support Teams

WalMart has announced that they will be offering technical support teams in their U.S. locations before the end of October, a move that puts them in direct competition with Best Buy’s Geek Squad support teams.

Under the tech support department WalMart will be using NEW Customer Service Companies to provide their technical support which will range from home theater installation to computer networking services.

Depending on the work required users can expect to pay anywhere from $99 to $339 dollars for service.

Give the large amount of success Geek Squad has managed to pull together it doesn’t really come as a surprise that WalMart would enter the market, however it should be interesting to see if their customer base, largely made up of thrifty spenders will be willing to shell out extra cash for services they could attempt on their own.
