Best Buy at the Waterfront in Homestead is closing in November.

There will be no Black Friday commotion at the Best Buy in the Waterfront in Homestead.

The store is scheduled to close before the biggest shopping day of the year.

“We had anticipated Best Buy’s announcement that they are leaving our center with an expected close date of November 2,” according to a statement from the Waterfront’s public relations firm WordWrite. “Our plan is to continue the transformation of The Waterfront by replacing Best Buy with a more relevant, exciting concept that’s more in line with our vision for the future.”

The news release points out “several exciting developments happening at our center.”

The changes include a 250-unit luxury apartment complex that is currently in the works on the Mitchell’s Fish Market property. Mitchell’s is open and taking reservations for holiday bookings. In August, it was announced that Siemens and Commonwealth Charter Academy will soon occupy the former Macy’s space, completing an office hub called The Waterfront Technology Center. The center will bring more than 500 full-time employees to The Waterfront, WordWrite said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
