PC World writes, "Bargain hunters headed to Circuit City to take advantage of the retailer's liquidation sales take heed. We checked out a closeout sale in Norwalk, Connecticut earlier this week and found once we got past the signs screaming "30 percent off" there weren't a whole lot of bargains to be had. We did find some good deals, but far fewer than we had hoped.
As you've no doubt heard, Circuit City, the nation's second largest retailer, has gone belly up.
We were hoping to find loads of great deals. While some of Circuit City's stock such as cables and wiring and DVD movies at the store we visited were marked down 30 to 20 percent, big tag items were only cut by 10 percent. Still, in this economic climate even a 10 percent off sale is welcome.
To find out just how good the deals were at Circuit City we compared prices with four other big retailers - Best Buy, Amazon.com, Fry's Electronics, and J&R Electronics. "
