"(Jan. 16) - Bankrupt Circuit City Stores Inc., unable to work out a sale of the company, said Friday it will go out of business — closing its 567 U.S. stores and cutting 30,000 jobs."

I'll be camping out at our local store waiting for the going out of business sale...

Thing is, more than likely they will sell their stores to a liquidator who will jack up prices and slowly discount them over the next 8 months. I have yet to find a decent deal at these silly liquidation sales... :(

I agree Mack.
Circuit City's home base is here in the Richmond area,it will have a very negative impact here.

Wow! Very interesting Mack...I'd have never thought they'd pull such shenanigans! That really opened my eyes! Buyer beware!

That has to be recent ,but old.
But it's still very good.
My wife and I drove by several Circuit City stores today and all of them were jammed pack.
People think they are going to get cheap stuff right now, but it aint so.

Yeah, my friend was going to buy a digital photo frame for her folks' anniversary. So she checked at Circuit City...endured the maddened throngs of bargain shoppers only to find the same frame elsewhere for the same price. Certainly not worth it...

Yeah until they do the 40%+ drop it's not worth it. They bring everything back up to SRP then reduce it. In a few days it will be time to shop, but unfortunately the dumb people have already bought everything.
