Is Circuit City pulling a CompUSA?

The now-defunct big-box retailer might be making a comeback online.

The company’s Web site says, “Circuit City.com is also temporarily closed, although we anticipate the website will reopen in the coming weeks.”

CompUSA closed in 2007 and then relaunched online and in a couple retail locations after it was purchased by Systemax.

CrunchGear first got wind of Circuit City’s potential relaunch. However, there’s no real way of telling how long the Web site has been like this.

Circuit City, of course, closed its doors on March 8 and liquidated about $1.7 billion in inventory. Circuit City received more negative press for selling shattered TVs during the liquidation than anything.

Could Circuit City compete with the likes of Newegg and TigerDirect?
