Same for Boynton Beach. They had a couple of Klipsch speakers left. . .tempting. . .
Wonder if I bit one day too early on an Energy Take Classic speaker system? I went Saturday night to make sure they wouldn't sell out at $300. If they marked down another 10%, it would have saved me $60.
That was a nice size CC store. I shopped there many times.
Nah, you have to figure the temp employees would have bought them first thing in the morning.
Movies and CDs are down to 70% off. There were a few things left, like BDs of Space Cowboys, Rambo III, Dewey Cox. I think the Rambo III Blu was only 6 bucks. They had the first couple of seasons of The Sopranos for 18 bucks a piece. I ended up with a DVD-ROM of National Lampoon magazine's complete run. Computer and video game software was only 60% off. There was a sign in the window that read "5 Days Left" or something to that effect. I have had a few pet peeves about CC over the years, but I was kind of bummed leaving there tonight. I miss going through the Sunday ad, and I know I'll miss their dive bins. So long, Circuit City.
I'll miss it too. Its closing just happened to be at the right time for me. Almost everything I bought I was going to buy in the next month or two, except for some of the PC games & Blu-rays.
That is Sad that they are losing there Jobs. It looks like many places will not be hiring
Anyone know whether there'll be a final discount bump on Thursday?
100% off nothing left?
I picked up an Optoma Panaview 106" GrayWolf II Electric Screen for $101+tax & recycle fee. Total came out to $134. The store had the 92" pull down version label on it....duhhh This screen sells between $500-$700 dollars online !!! I just need to find the right projector for it...any help will do.
The store in Louisville was even worse. They had a couple 45+ inch sets for $800 but the only catch was that there wasn't any returns. I thought about it for a few seconds and then asked for them to turn it on. They then told me that there wasn't a power cord (I'd have to buy it) and the remote was missing (he tried selling me a Universal remote). At first I thought it was a joke but I just walked out. I couldn't believe they were expecting people to trust them so I went over to Best Buy, bought a power cord and went back to CC to plug the television in. The picture came up for a few seconds, started flickering and then looked like the colors were melting. I was asked to leave but my girlfriend went back in later and they were still trying to sell the television. I wonder how many people are going to end up getting ripped by stuff like this. The rest of the stuff was mostly open boxed items without any returns and of course, cords and remotes were all missing.
That is just too funny. "Please leave. We can't have customers seeing if it works." Seriously though, I hate to see Circuit City go as well. This is probably the silly liquidation company policy and not the good employees that worked at CC during their good days.
The store in my area still had a couple copies of Space Cowboys too.
I would have called the police. (Not 911, of course.) So, is Space Cowboys worth watching? I've never seen (or bought!) it.
Space Cowboys? I liked it, if for no other reason than the stellar cast, if you liked Armageddon, you'll like this.
That is disappointing and unacceptable, you were smart to check it out. I assume the manufacturer warranty is valid and there is a way to get the TV repaired under warranty so there might be a way to make it work out alright at the right price. I purchased a Samsung BD-UP5000 during the liquidation sale without checking it out and it didn't work but Samsung repaired it quickly, replacing the mainboard apparently and it seems to work well now but it is still under warranty so I am going to use it a lot during the warranty period to make sure.

Is it a crime to offer broken TV's with a no return policy? I can't imagine the police would even show up if someone called with a complaint like that. I like Space Cowboys, silly but fun and morale boosting for us older guys. Chris
The end is near: Circuit City to Close All Stores by Sunday - WSJ.com I guess that includes the top quality broken TVs.
R.I.P. CC. Your misbegotten trek to extinction began with DIVX, and ended when you canned all your higher-earning employees who knew anything. May you serve as a business model for all customer-service-oriented electronic stores. NOT.
