Default R.I.P. Circuit City

http://www.circuitcity.com/closed.html

Sad to see them go since they're a Richmond, VA based company. I didn't shop there very often because I like Best Buy more, but CC would have some sweet deals on new release games sometimes.

I'll probably hit it up tomorrow to see if I can snag some sweet games or DVDs or Blu-Rays for cheap.

They filed for bankruptcy a few months ago in hopes to turn things around with a new business structure, but it wasn't enough I guess.

Circuit City has been on their way out for some time...the local one here has been liquidating for a month or so already.

Circuit City sucked balls. Fuck 'em. They were never competitive and their service was abysmal.

Only thing I can remember buying from Circuit City was headphones. Only reason I'll miss the place is because I can remember going there with my dad back in the '90s, and it just seemed like a place that would always be there. End of a franchise. I think I just got a little bit older. RIP.

I don't think that commercial has been on for years.

Damn...this couldn't have come at a worse time. Flow is going to be super tight around here until my Tax Refund comes...

Overall though the closing of CC sucks balls. Around here they were ALWAYS the first to drop prices on Playstation games, and they always had the best prices on blank CD-Rs and DVD-Rs. I'm gonna miss CC.

Damn.

Just a baby one. Samsung, 19". It's basically the same exact thing as my big tv, but smaller. It was 10% off, so it came in under $400 after taxes and recycle fees. I figure after I pick up another HD receiver and HDMI cable I'll be able to say that I finally did something under my budget, which was $500.

I went in today...some pretty sweet deals actually.

We almost bought a 360 Arcade for $160 to replace my broken one but decided against it in the end.

Brandy got me Resistance 2 (she's too good to me ) for just under $50 and I bought myself Boondocks season 2 for $30. Got 20% off on the game and 25% off on the DVD set.

My friend is heading over this week and grabbing a PS3 for $320.
