Well, it's a sad read over at the Circuit City web site, where the company wishes its customers goodbye after being in business (previously as the Wards Companies) since 1949. Their farewell explains that almost 40,000 folk across the country are losing their jobs, and that liquidation managers have taken over running -- and liquidating -- the remaining Circuit City stores that are open.
Sad, sad. I always liked Circuit City. I found some really good deals there.
And, starting yesterday -- January 16th -- the clearance sales begin. Everything but personal checks will be accepted, and there are supposed to be some good buys to be had.
