As expected, Circuit City announced that they are closing the rest of their 567 US stores. This is a shocking conclusion to a 60 year old consumer electronics retail company hit hard by the bad economic climate. You can read a very interesting summary of this at their website. Liquidation sales have started. Read the bullet about the company headquarters employees; it's a shocker. I have to say that I'm going to miss Circuit City. I didn't always agree with them and I preferred Best Buy, but I still shopped at Circuit City occasionally.
