“According to Jefferson Parish Councilwoman Cynthia Lee-Sheng, who today announced the plans for the store, the opening will take place Nov. 13,” the report stated.  “Best Buy will give priority to Jefferson Parish residents in employment considerations at the new location, Lee-Sheng’s office said.”
