this has already happened to stores around me the thing is they raised the price of everything then discounted it so they still get the same as before i went to staples and best buy and found what i was looking for cheaper then circuit city and they wonder why they are closing

Ive kinda noticed that too. Maybe things will be different this time. Im goin to wait til end of Feb. maybe early March, and see if I cant pick up a really cheap LCD TV or maybe a stereo for my car. Still, that does suck for the employees of Circut City. I guess this means Best Buy's market share pretty much grows to 100%

Funniest part about that is my local "so-so" Buy employees are idiots.

CompUSA did that with their phones. Their "going out of business" price on phones was full MSRP less 10% or 15%. Yay, an AT&T-locked RAZR for a mere $275!

A lot of people do not realize is that when a business liquidates, the liquidation discounts are off an MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price) and not off a sale price in effect at a time of announcement of liquidation or store closing.

Yeah JL's grammar and sentence structure arent very good. I usually give some of those people the benefit of the doubt, may be from outside the US
