After a long downward spiral, the end is finally here for Circuit City.
Circuit City announced that it’ll be closing its stores permanently on March 8, making this the final weekend to grab that last clear-out sale item.
The closing this Sunday represents a slightly earlier-than-expected date. Liquidation sales of Circuit City’s $1.7 billion in inventory started on January 17 and was expected to last eight weeks.
“Thanks to record shopper turnout at many of the store locations and the attractive discounts offered on all merchandise, the sales actually went quicker than we expected,” noted Scott Carpenter, executive VP for Great American Group, which has been overseeing all the sales activity as part of a joint venture group.
So, what did you buy from Circuit City? Did you receive any lemons? How was service at the store?
