[BW] Circuit City Out of Business - Page 2

post #11 of 91
wow this blows... I'm not a big fan of either best buy or circuit city, but that's all we have around here. There is one Micro Center but it is a good 45 minute drive one way on a good day.

Damn they just opened a new store here in Knoxville and Alcoa. Oh well though...time for me to go hide some things around in store to make sure I get them when the sale price is right where I want them to be. I guess I can get myself 4 of the 8800GT Superclocked versions to have some fun with but damn shame as they always have the best clearance deals and I've made almost 20 grand so far this year buying stuff from them on clearance and selling it online.

Well, I tip my hat to you guys for lasting this long.

Also because of better selection and that's a big part. Retail stores can't compete with a warehouse and a computer because they've gotta buy everything in large quantities even to sell just a few of them.

LMAO I had an argument about 2 weeks ago with someone trying to tell me to buy as much CC stock I can. needless to say I told him he was stupid he got raging mad about it and now he's going to loose acouple thousand dollars. I should feel bad for him but he is such a prick when talking about stocks.

circuit city was a terrible as CompUSA

the one local here, every 3-5 years would completely fire the entire store and rehire everyone from management to workers

all to keep people from being payed to much
and to keep from advancement. YOU STINK CC!

This worries me. My Uncle has worked for CC since he was 19 and is now in thier Coporate Office in Richmond. He started out working on the sales floor here in Savannah so the potential for advancement is there. Also the store here is pretty nice.

Yup, I just checked my in-store mail and everyone got a message from Phil Schoonover talking about Goldman and Sachs. Yet, like every e-mail, I just deleted it.

Where will I go now! O noes the world is ending!
