Dell Tests Service Centers at Wal-Mart

Susan Hall

Dell is opening its own version of Best Buy's Geek Squad in a test though Dallas-area Wal-Mart stores, reports Financial Times.

 

The 15 "Solution Centers by Dell" will provide home installation for high-definition TVs and home theater systems, as well as computer repair and advice on wireless technology.

 

Though the July 14 announcement said the service would be available "this month," the exact dates aren't clear. The company says it has no plans at this point to expand the service.

 

Dell began selling computers through retailers last year after relying on direct marketing for two decades.
