|About: Best Buy Co. (BBY)|By:, SA News Editor

Best Buy (BBY -2.6%) has replaced the executive in charge of its U.S. retail stores after he held the position for only seven months, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Shawn Score was a 29-year veteran at the company.

Shari Ballard will take over the role on a permanent basis and keep her current duties as head of human resources.

Shares of BBY are lower for the day on above-average volume. Weak guidance from hhgregg earlier this morning could be a factor.
