    Yeah, I saw this.

    Maybe it's time to start shopping for that new camera and/or camcorder.

    My local store told me Circuit City is only downsizing. My store is one of those that will remain open.

    I always liked Circuit City over Best Buy. Sad.... to bad it won't make the customer service at Best Buy any better, now that they have even less competition they will care even less.

    Originally, they were going to close just the lower-performing stores, but now it's all of them.

    While this may happen Circuit City still has the rest of today to make a deal with either of the two groups that have been looking to buy the company. The liquidation approval may be just part of a tactic for negotiations or as part of a package to make it easier for a buyer to maneuver the company. But in all likelihood CC is done.

    Be careful about those going out-of-business sales. A lot of companies will increase the price and then post a sticker over the old price advertising 50% off, when in fact the price with the discount comes out to the same as the original price.

    i.e a alarm clock that is normally $20, they will mark up to $40 and advertise it as 50% off making it $20. So sometimes you don't save anything and sometimes they charge you more than the original price.

    The Circuit City down the street from me put up a liquidation sign about 3 months ago, they are set to close on the 20th.

    When I went to my local Circuit City that was closing most of the prices were either the same or just a little off price. Most camcorders and cameras only had about 20% or 30%. I don't think Circuit City wants to mark many things down in price or they'll lose more money.

    I'm hoping for a miricle. Too many long established quality chains are liquidating. The economy cannot sustain the impact indefinitly.

    I never cared for Circuit City and their forcing insurance on items you buy. My son's friend used to work there and said that it's the biggest racket they have at CC. That it was a huge money maker and the employees were really forced to sell it.

    I'd not buy anything there that I can never return if something goes wrong!

    I might go look at the cameras. I'm interested in a new canon. I might go see how their price compares to the one I saw on Walmart.com and the BX on base...
