If you're nostalgic for always-kinda-depressing-and-overpriced electronics retailer Circuit City, you have until Sunday, March 8 to stop by and re-visit the store's limited selection of car-stereos, satellite radios and blank DVDs. The doors are closing after this weekend, people. Last chance to pick up a copy of FIFA 06.
“Thanks to record shopper turnout at many of the store locations and the attractive discounts offered on all merchandise, the sales actually went quicker than we expected,” said Scott Carpenter, executive vice president, director of operations, for Great American Group, which has been overseeing Circuit City's sales activity.
Circuit City joins Mervyns, Steve & Barry’s, KB Toys, Shoe Pavilion, and Linens 'N Things on the scrapheap of retail history. You probably could have seen this coming: When was the last time you needed a circuit for anything? And why would you need a whole city of them?
