I've created the following code, but now I need to show the results.  How do I do that?

    var apiKey = "zy5hzrxazsfe9f9uyehqpb5c";

    var storeLocation = params.id.split('|');

    var myURL = "http://api.remix.bestbuy.com/v1/stores(area(" + storeLocation[1] + "," + storeLocation[0] + "))?format=json&callback=?&apiKey=" + apiKey;

    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: myURL,
        cache: true,
        success: function () {
            alert('success');
        },
        dataType: 'json'
    });

add a variable to your success function:

   var apiKey = "zy5hzrxazsfe9f9uyehqpb5c";

    var storeLocation = params.id.split('|');

    var myURL = "http://api.remix.bestbuy.com/v1/stores(area(" + storeLocation[1] + "," + storeLocation[0] + "))?format=json&callback=?&apiKey=" + apiKey;

    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: myURL,
        cache: true,
        success: function ( results ) {
           // alert('success');
            alert(results)l);
        },
        dataType: 'json'
    });

Open in new window


that'll spit out all of the data that it received. Assuming it's in json, you can then parse it with jquerys parse function:
