  • Circuit City closing 155 of 600 stores.

    Wow. They're closing a store in Norman, OK that they just opened less than six months ago. The NYSE listed them .bc as well. So will CC go the way of Sam Goody or K-Mart?

    I think I may buy a couple thousand shares just for grins :D

      Years ago, a friend was running an Egghead Software store. He started a going out of business dollar sale on all items. The store was bare by the time the district manager from Massachusetts got there to stop it.

        There is a CC closing in Dallas that was only opened a month ago.

              The store right near my work is not on the list..so I guess they are keeping the vast majority of the D/FW stores open..

              I have never been a huge fan of CC, but their presence keeps other big retailers in "check" with their pricing, and they have had some AWESOME "black friday" offers in the past..

                The one closed to me will still be open. But it's not exactly a store I'll go into on a regular basis.

                  I go into the one close to me some, but not a lot..they usually do not have as good of a selection as Fry's or even Best Buy, but I have found some real bargains there on the closeout table more than once.. :)
