I was one of the few guys who actually ordered games and such off of circuit city. Being a subscriber to Circuit City online, earlier this morning, I received an interesting e-mail from circuit city. Read what its about after the jump.

No such thing as Circuit City anymore, the only reason the online is still around is because the liquidators are trying to sell of stock.

Did you read the freaking article?

Systemax, the parent company of Tigerdirect and CompUSA bought it. Circuit City is back in business.

Well it could relaunch, it's hard to say, but it would be good if there were more competition on the retail side of things.

didnt comp usa go out of business

Ziriux3072d ago

Yes, I read the article, I worked at the company broseph. It will get a name change to start fresh. Also if you follow business even remotely you'd know CompUSA has been shut down over a year.

Bad Idea in this economy, it will fail, like it did without a bad economy. Best Buy is simply the best out of all the electronic retailers.

You may have just been 'out of the loop' as a former customer.

The same thing was done with CompUSA & all TigerDirect outlet stores, recently re-branded & expanded to CompUSA stores...complete with "the all-new CompUSA" bags.

I'm looking at one from a purchase, right now.
I don't expect the retail stores to re-open, but they could easily be converted to CompUSA's.

In any event, CiruitCity IS re-launched, and IS back.
(and the prices look a heck of alot better than they did even when marked down '75%' off some fake-inflated price at store liquidations!)

Darkiewonder3072d ago

yeah. CompUSA must be shut down and these stores doesn't exist.

So that CompUSA that I bought me Netbooks from was a figment of my imagination? I don't think it will fail. The awareness of technology is gowning amongst the non-techy population. I have faith in CompUSA for being so brave as to have a store aimed at computers.
