Small is the new black: Best Buy is downsizing 16 of its
Bay Area big box stores, and offering others the freed up
space, from 5,000 square feet to 18,000 square feet.
Best Buy had previously said that it was moving away from its
biggest boxes, those stores over 45,000 square feet, in favor
of an average 36,000-square-foot space. Now it has named
names, and the local list includes stores in San Francisco, Colma,
Marin City, Dublin and Emeryville, to name a few.
Here's the data on Bay Area Best Buy space available:
  • -Colma: 200 Colma Blvd., Colma 11,723 square feet available
  • -Dublin: 4820 Dublin Blvd., Dublin 5,023 square feet available
  • -East Palo Alto: 1751 E Bayshore Road, East Palo Alto 10,389 
  •      square feet available
  • -Bay Bridge: 3700 Mandela Pkwy., Emeryville 4,950 
  •      square feet available
  • -Marin City: 180 Donahue St., Marin City 13,937 square 
  •      feet available
  • -Milpitas: 63 Ranch Ave., Milpitas 11,007 square feet 
  •      available
  • -Pinole: 1490 Firtzgerald Road, Pinole 9,828 square 
  •      feet available
  • -Pittsburg: 4405 Century Blvd., Pittsburg 17,329 square 
  •      feet available
  • -San Carlos: 1127 Industrial Road, San Carlos 10,524 
  •      square feet available
  • -San Francisco: 1717 Harrison St., San Francisco 5,000 
  •      square feet available
  • -Santana Row: 3090 Stevens Creek Blvd., San Jose 11,632 
  •      square feet available
  • -Blossom Hill: 5065 Almaden Expy., San Jose 7,492 square 
  •      feet available
  • -San Jose: 181 Curtner Ave., San Jose 8,921 square feet 
  •      available
  • -Union City: 31350 Courthouse Drive, Union City 5,381 
  •      square feet available
  • -Vallejo: 1182 Admiral Callaghan Lane, Vallejo 8,832 square 
  •      feet available
  • -San Francisco: 2675 Geary St., San Francisco TBD
Interestingly, the San Francisco Geary Street store lists "TBD" as the amount of space available. Jake Randolph at Cornish & Carey said that Best Buy is not sure about downsizing that location; it may be taken off of the list completely to continue operating as it does today. That City Center shopping center location will soon be home to San Francisco's second City Target , and Target is pretty desirable as neighbors go.
According to the Cornish & Carey marketing flyer for the properties, Best Buy will consider all types of retail or service tenants, including restaurants, retailers, groceries and dentists.
