Circuit City is No More

March 9, 2009 -

Gizmodo reports that Circuit City has slipped quietly into that retail good night.

Individual stores of the bankrupt retailer spent their final hours over the weekend selling off their remaining merchandise and then even getting what they could for their empty shelves.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I feel bad for the tens of thousands of people who are now jobless.

I'm royally pi**ed at the executive management of the company who will probably walk away from this with millions and be courted to run some other company into the ground while again walking away with millions.

On the other hand I feel bad for the executives too. Can you imagine not being able to get a new BMW every year? Some of them might even have to sell their summer homes. Oh, the humanity.

I went into my local CC store every weekend. Not once did I see a price I couldn't have gotten lower elsewhere. It still amazes me that people were lining up to buy merchandise they could have gotten cheaper elsewhere.

Every once in a while they had some seriously awesome game sales, $5 each. There's a lot I'll snag for that little. I think the last one we were at a few years ago, I got 23 games.

But in general? Prices weren't worth it, often had stuff above list (so did Comp-USA), staff was unhelpful.

Whelp, good thing that Best Buy was just built near the Circut City, otherwise where would we have to go for our big box electronic store needs? Wait? I think I smell conspiracy! Best Buy has been planning this coup all along!

Re: Circuit City is No More

Ironicly a Best Buy was built in my mall, which was across the street from Circuit City.

CC should have died a long time ago.  The fact they dragged out their death this long was amazing.

Re: Circuit City is No More

I wonder what my old CC manager is doing? Probably sitting behind the building, drinking a quart of Mad Dog, muttering to himself "False advertising is bad. Employee mistreatment is bad. DIVX was a bad idea..."

Re: Circuit City is No More

Well then, as long as they didn't go gentle into that good night, everything's just fine.

Re: Circuit City is No More

Selling your very shelves probably counts as raging.

Andrew EisenNow, having said that, what sites are you reading that are claiming that if "you self-identify as a Gamer, you're immediately the problem" or that gamers are "obligated to stop harassment"? Or was that hyperbole too?09/21/2014 - 1:03am
Andrew EisenFirst of all, ONE person in the Shout box suggested an obligation to call harassers out on their harassing but only after YOU brought it up. Plus, Techno said "when you see it happening." If you don't see it, you're not under any obligation.09/21/2014 - 1:02am
Sleaker@Craig R. - at this point I don't even know what the hashtags are suppsed to be in support of. what does GamerGate actually signify.09/21/2014 - 12:21am
Sleaker@AE - Hyperbole for the first 2, but it seems like some of the comments in the shout are attempting to place blame on fellow gamers because they aren't actively telling people to stop harassing even though they don't necessarily know anyone that has.09/21/2014 - 12:16am
Andrew EisenSleaker - Who the heck are you reading that is claiming "all gamers are bad," we "need to pass laws or judgement on all gamers," that if "you self-identify as a Gamer, you're immediately the problem," or that gamers are "obligated to stop harassment"?09/20/2014 - 9:44pm
erthwjimhe swatted more than just krebs, I think he swatted 30 people http://krebsonsecurity.com/2014/05/teen-arrested-for-30-swattings-bomb-threats/09/20/2014 - 9:31pm
Craig R.Btw, the guy who swatted security expert Brian Krebs? He got picked up recently. It can be done.09/20/2014 - 8:55pm
Craig R.Such things are not done in a vacuum... hence why the 4chan and other logs show what fools you've all been, tricked into doing the trolls' work09/20/2014 - 8:49pm
Sleaker@Technogeek - How do you call someone out that anonymously calls in a SWAT team, or sends threats to people?09/20/2014 - 7:04pm
Technogeek"It also doesn't mean you're obligated to stop harassment from all gamers that are doing so." I'd say you're certainly obligated to call them out when you see it happening.09/20/2014 - 5:17pm
SleakerNow if you disagree with anything in my last 2 posts then we obviously have a difference in world view, and wont come to any sort of agreement. I'm fine with that, maybe some people aren't?09/20/2014 - 5:09pm
SleakerIt also doesn't mean that just because a news outlet says that Gamers are the problem and you self-identify as a Gamer, you're immediately the problem. It also doesn't mean you're obligated to stop harassment from all gamers that are doing so.09/20/2014 - 4:59pm
SleakerJust to re-iterate: People getting harassed is wrong. Just because someone is harassed by so called 'gamers' doesn't mean that all gamers are bad. nor does it mean that you need to pass laws or judgement on all gamers.09/20/2014 - 4:56pm
SleakerAnd furthermore just because someone doesn't 'crusade against the evil' that doesn't make them the problem. You can have discussion with those around you. There's a thing called sphere of influence.09/20/2014 - 4:54pm
Sleaker@Conster - one person getting harassed is a 'problem' only so far as the harassee's are doing it. Just because a select few people choose to act like this doesn't make it widespread. Nor does it immediately make everyone responsible to put an end to it.09/20/2014 - 4:54pm
james_fudgeno worries09/20/2014 - 4:15pm
TechnogeekI misread james' comment as "we can't have a debate without threatening" there at first. Actually wound up posting a shout about death threats and "kill yourself" not technically being the same thing before I realized.09/20/2014 - 3:59pm
james_fudgeDon't hit me *cowers behind Andrew*09/20/2014 - 3:20pm
ConsterYou take that back right now, james, or else. *shakes fist menacingly*09/20/2014 - 3:00pm
james_fudgeOur community is awesome. We can have a debate without threatening to kill each other.09/20/2014 - 2:50pm
