[BW] Circuit City Out of Business - Page 5

post #41 of 91
Meh, we'll still have a Fry's around me if I want to buy crappy, overpriced electronics... But seriously, I never shop at CC--they're very expensive and very generic, same with BB. But I am very curious to see if any of this will affect online deals (like at newegg) at all--that would blow. Other than that, I'm not sad to see them gone--they never have good prices, they have horrible customer service (at least at the one near me), and don't offer anything that another store doesn't--in that case, what's the point? But I do sympathize for those who only have a CC around them--that's going to suck. I was more concerned with CompUSA closing down because at least they sold useable comp hardware, moreso than CC or BB...

Circuit City isn't "out of business". The chain is being bought and restructured.
The thread should have been entitled, "Circuit City to be bought out".
I suppose the doomsday title does draw more hits.

That's a very good point--I even read the article before I posted, and it said nothing about shutting down stores, but I also drew that conclusion. Perhaps we're thinking that this is the beginning of the end...? But good catch!

Wow, this is amazing news. I had a friend working for CompUSA, and when he heard they were going under, he quit and got a job at Circuit City, now... I guess he goes to Best Buy??? Haha, cause that's all we have in Utah now. Well I'll be honest though, I'd never buy a overpriced computer part from one of these retailers when we have places like NewEgg around..(unless it's some freaking awesome sale known as the 'going out of business sale')

I knew about this a while ago, my CC in topeka closed down like 3 years ago, and the other one I used in overland park closed a couple months ago.

This is real bad news for us..
First it was CompUSA and now CC.

I bought my wifes LCD monitor from them this past thursday. Will have to keep eyes open for great deals now...

Now all thats left is Best Buy and I don't like them much...

I should feel bad for him but he is such a prick when talking about stocks.
In the end, he may be right. Blockbuster will probably have to offer better than the "over-the-counter " price for CC, so your friend will probably make out like a bandit. You might have missed out on a very good stock tip.

Massive flocks to the sales area!

I may be bitter because of the location of the dead CompUSA store that used to reside in my city of Knoxville, Tennessee but when I went to go check out their "Going-out-of-business bargains" they had 2GB Kingston DDR2-800 kits going for $200 a hit and then saying that they were "MARKED DOWN TO A SUPER-LOW PRICE OF $99.99" which was $10 more than NewEgg or ZipZoomFly.

I have a feeling CC will go out the same way ... buyers beware
