Best Buy has postponed the launch of its first UK store until Q1 2010.

The delay has nothing to do with the current economic crisis, apparently.

“If it makes more commercial sense to open three or four months later, that is what we will do,” said Brad Taylor of KeyBanc Capital Markets.

The electronics giant originally planned to open the retail store as a joint joint venture with Carphone Warehouse this summer.
