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
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.
comp usa is being brought back. it was reported like 4 months ago
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.
yeah. CompUSA must be shut down and these stores doesn't exist. http://www.compusa.com/reta...
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.
Long Live Circuit City !
I was about to say "watch they're becoming online only now" lol than I read other posts and realized I'm just out of the loop. haha
CC back in business
Quote: "just to let you guys know, the sales aren’t that great in my book " And now you know the second reason they went out of business. The first one was conniving pricing, or business practices. Not honoring sales. Having a big sale on a item and repeatedly having 10 per store knowing full well you will have 1,000+ customers asking for it. Having a 'all stores aren't participating' excuse in several stores, or in some cases almost all stores! Bait and switch which is suppose to be illegal. No respect for your customers intelligence and paying executives bonuses to burn and alienate your customer base will do it every time! Is there any control for having all executives that will get credit for saving the company money for a quarter at the obvious expense of losing customers permantly? That seems to be a corporate problem lately (especially circuit city, GM, ford, Chrysler, you get the idea). Long live competition and customers that will speak with their paycheck!
As much as the idea of Circuit City coming back excites me, there's something about the website I just don't trust.
