Circuit City is No More

Gizmodo reports that Circuit City has slipped quietly into that retail good night.

Individual stores of the bankrupt retailer spent their final hours over the weekend selling off their remaining merchandise and then even getting what they could for their empty shelves.

    Every once in a while they had some seriously awesome game sales, $5 each. There’s a lot I’ll snag for that little. I think the last one we were at a few years ago, I got 23 games.

    But in general? Prices weren’t worth it, often had stuff above list (so did Comp-USA), staff was unhelpful.

    I feel bad for the tens of thousands of people who are now jobless.

    I’m royally pi**ed at the executive management of the company who will probably walk away from this with millions and be courted to run some other company into the ground while again walking away with millions.

    On the other hand I feel bad for the executives too. Can you imagine not being able to get a new BMW every year? Some of them might even have to sell their summer homes. Oh, the humanity.

    I went into my local CC store every weekend. Not once did I see a price I couldn’t have gotten lower elsewhere. It still amazes me that people were lining up to buy merchandise they could have gotten cheaper elsewhere.

    Whelp, good thing that Best Buy was just built near the Circut City, otherwise where would we have to go for our big box electronic store needs? Wait? I think I smell conspiracy! Best Buy has been planning this coup all along!

    I wonder what my old CC manager is doing? Probably sitting behind the building, drinking a quart of Mad Dog, muttering to himself "False advertising is bad. Employee mistreatment is bad. DIVX was a bad idea…"
