Best Buy plans to open about 100 of its big-box stores in Europe over the next five years, with the first locations to open in the United Kingdom next summer.

Roger Taylor, chief financial officer of Best Buy’s European partner The Carphone Warehouse, said that three or four large-format stores will open in Great Britain over the summer, and that most of the "hundred or so" European stores will be located in the U.K.

Plans also call for an online presence in continental Europe within the next one to two years, and the first Best Buy stores there before March 2013.
