Shop for a cause

If your family is in the market for some new electronics, Friday, May 27 is the day to shop!

Best Buy stores in Scottsdale will be hosting the second annual Customer Appreciation Day to benefit cancer research, in association with Mirabel Hope for the Cause. A percentage of the store’s earnings for the day, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., will support the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare, which has conducted research and provided cancer care since 2001.

Special pricing will be available on items throughout the store.

Participating Best Buy stores are located at 15448 N. Pima Rd. and 10330 N. 90th St. in Scottsdale. — Sadie Smeck
