When bad companies get worse


Circuit City deserves to go bankrupt!

It's all over the news the Circuit City is going belly up and putting 30,000 Americans out of work. They are advertising great savings during this financial crisis. Hubby needs a laptop and a new phone, so we drove over last night to check out the fire sale. They are failing, so ready to unload all that merchandise and close up shop, right?

WRONG! Their big idea of savings was 10% off!! I kid you not, 10%! And that was off an already high price. Their kids DVDs were priced at $22! For a DVD I could get at Target for $10. Everything else was just the same. Crap I could get at Target for quite a bit less. And without a return policy because next week they won't be there. So I say good riddance, and I hope they paid their unemployment insurance premiums.

We used to have 2 Circuit City stores in the town I work in, and they never did that well. One closed several years ago and is now the site of an off-track betting parlor. I also think that their salespeople used to work on commission, and I always got that cheesy sales vibe when I went in there.

Just another terrible kick in the balls, of course, for all the people who worked there.

I only shopped there like once... they happen to have the lowest price on a small video thingee for my dd...I never liked going there...

I was never a fan of Circuit City...and I am not shocked there is no savings during their liquidation. The follow up service on sold products sucked big time. I say good riddance.

Whatever sexist bastard we have to thank for training their staff, I always loved being ignored when I HAD to go to Circuit City. Their staff were unfailing rude so working up some enthusiasm for them is going to take a little effort.

But I'm looking forward to the big sales!

If you want a good laptop cheap go to the Dell Outlet. I snagged a fabulous laptop for about $600 with lots o' bells unt vistles.

But just think of all those people losing their jobs.

That store never appealed to me, neither does Best Buy. I hope those people can find new jobs. We've got to move these color tvs!
