They need Don Draper from Sterling Cooper.
"I hate Circuit City. Bad selection, rotten return policy, and they were in bed with those DIVX crooks. I'll be glad to see them go."
It was embarrassing to go into a Circuit City when they were pushing that crap and I don't think they ever recovered from that failure of an idea.
No stores by me are closing. Only one in a state that touches mine.
There is a new one that just opened up 2 weeks ago a few miles away. I've been in there twice and it's been a ghost town every time.
hope they stick around...scored a discount s50 home kit there
Our local CC is closing and I can't say that I am very unhappy about it. It was a smaller store and I guess it was some sort of "test" store for several things. If you bought something there you couldn't return it at other CCs because they used some sort of different receipt system. The people who worked there were HORRIBLE. They'd be text messaging their buddies when they were supposed to be helping you. Not that they ever provided any real help. The store hasn't even been open a full year. I hope that the other local stores stay open because I have always had good experiences at those. I dread the day when the only choices we have are Best Buy or Frys.
Here in Vegas, CC & BB are located next door to eachother, no lie, on maryland parkway near UNLV....
I have a feeling BB might buy out CC and keep the CC name just for tax purposes.
Alot of companies do that, kinda stealth-ish.
I work for Alamo/National Car Rental and we own/operate Enterprise Car Rental, and we just kept the name seperate and stuff.
Also, for a time, I think DirecTV wanted to buy out DISH network and keep them seperate also......
that's what SIRIUS should have done with the buyout of XM, buyout, but still keep XM seperate and stuff, you can make more money that way. IMHO.
Apparently I found out the two CC's by me and closing there doors and one of them has only been open for about a year, that sad!
I am surprised the store they opened here less than 9 months ago is actually going to remain open. It does appear to be very busy. One thing I noticed from the day they opened was the small amount of inventory they had. Lots of shelf space that really wasn't filled at all. This of course is one of their smaller market stores.
None of the stores in my area closed which is surprising. I was expecting at least one or two stores shutting their doors here, but it looks like they were spared.
I"m not surprised about the one in Tyson's Corner ( A) .
Heck, there is another one 2 miles away (B) ... Do you think they overbuilt?
I was watching my local news and and I heard all 13 Circuit City's stores in and around the the city of Phoenix are closing there doors. Now that sad, so all of them are shutting down in Phoenix that problem means there leaving the entire state of Arizona?
A good friend of mine just lost his job at CC corporate in Richmond, VA today. Apparently they had massive layoffs among their management numbering in the hundreds.
Circuit City layoffs hit Henrico HQ - Richmond, Virginia, Business News and Financial Information - inRich.com
Given the general attitudes of employees at CC I'm not going to miss them or their stores. B has run laps around the red and black albatross. It's not a mistake that the local CC parking lot is half empty while BB's lot "overflowith". Additionally, the number of online deals dwarfs what the brick and mortar options provide.
I went to the Circuit City a few blocks away that was closing. They had hired people to highlight signs in the neighborhood. "Store Closing Sale, everything 10-30% off"
So I needed a Modem, but wasn't sure which one to get. At the counter it was ALL SALES FINAL.
I just walked to the Best Buy instead and it was cheaper there anyway. But I don't want to buy anything that I'm not sure about and not be able to return it.
People still use modems??
Did you get a brand new 8 Track player while you were at it? See any good sales on Betamax VCRs? :rofl:
I moved into a new apt with DSL. It comes straight out of an ethernet jack and I really didn't need the modem after all. But yeah. I'll put my home speed on the speedtest thread.
Glad I won't be needed that 3-year warranty I bought with my S2.
Any Harry Homeowner internet connection requires a modem, including cable and DSL.
I'm concerned about my 3 year extended warranty that I bought along with my Samsung 52" LCD this past Spring. Any idea what will happen to the purchased extended warranties or did I just piss a couple hundred $$$ away?
I'm in the same boat. I bought a 3 year (I think) for my Plasma.
I think we'll be ok.
I think there might be info on their website.
