Best Buy is busy expanding its U.K. presence after opening its first store here in April.

It has confirmed a new store in Derby at Kingsway Retail Park in the autumn, followed by a Nottingham store at the Castle Marina Retail Park in spring/summer 2011.

The electronics retailer opened in Thurrock, Essex outside London April 30. Like the U.S. stores, Best Buy sells a range of high-end audio and visual equipment alongside a sizeable provision of entertainment product, including CDs, DVDs and computer games.

Best Buy has two stores in the U.K. - Thurrock and Hedge End in Southampton - and will open its Merry Hill store in the west Midlands on Friday (June 25). Stores in Aintree near Liverpool and Croydon in south London are set to launch later this year.
