It’s come to the end of the line for Circuit City. The company is shuttering the doors to whatever stores have remained open this Sunday, March 8.
We’ve heard and read that it’s been among the most underwhelming liquidations, with some people even finding themselves having purchased shattered TVs or searching sticker prices that weren’t even up to par with Amazon.
Some of the 567 stores that were being liquidated since mid-January have already closed, but you can try grabbing what’s left on those near-empty shelves this weekend.
Circuit City was liquidating around $1.7 billion in inventory. So did you score any good deals on unbroken TVs, or other electronics like PCs, audio gear or anything else, over the last two months? (Or had you already done some higher-end liquidation shopping at Tweeter, perhaps?) Tell us about it in the comments below.
