Best Buy renovating space to come to the Walk at Highwoods Preserve

HIGHWOODS PRESERVE — New Tampa residents who were sad to see Circuit City shut down can now look forward to another electronics giant: Best Buy.

The big box store plans to open in the space once occupied by Linens 'N Things, next to the former Circuit City.

Best Buy officials said earlier this week that plans are progressing, but a specific opening date was not available because the space still needs to be renovated.

With the closings of Linens 'N Things and Circuit City a year ago, Michael's, the arts and crafts store, became the only anchor tenant at the Walk at Highwoods Preserve.

Meanwhile, a T.G.I.Friday's has since opened where the former Bennigan's restaurant used to be.

Emilia Sierko of Developers Diversified Realty, which manages the Walk, said she's "working on a few things" concerning the Circuit City space, but would not give specific details.

There is currently a Best Buy at the Grove, about 8 miles north in Pasco County.
