    AS I remember it was really hard to get waited on there. I don't think I ever bought anything more than a cable there. And when they closed they really shit on their employees as I recall, like gives us your badge here's your paycheck GTFO.

    Yes but the malls are still packed with shoppers. Ive seen it myself and I wonder why they just dont just buy stuff on Amazon instead. Im guessing that women want to get out of the house and get away from their husbands for a bit. The malls really should be empty due to Amazon but no they arent.

    "Private Label" accessories:giggle:
    Looks like these morons are looking at "potential" Markups % instead of real world sell through rates.

    Look at any of the Major retailers and what crap they can't sell...$50 HDMI Cable, $40 USB Printer Cable :roll:

    I like actually leaving my house from time to time, and it's useful to be able to get something right when you need it as opposed to waiting on Amazon shipping. Love Amazon but still like actual stores.

    Not all the malls are packed. The malls with good management companies and excellent location are doing well. There are a half dozen around me that are dead or dying but only one that is thriving.

    As long as there's bored teenagers and bored housewives the malls will still do alright.

    Goodie!

    A second attempt at overpriced Chinese made junk with their industrial leading bad service! :dance2:

    CD's for $19.99 and blurays for $35.99

    I can't wait!


    I have such fond memories of paying too much for something I needed, then having the snotty cashier swipe the counterfeit marker across every cash bill I would hand them, and then get no "thank you" when done.

    ONLY to be stopped 5 feet away by their asshole door security that would demand my bag and receipt, then study it for a minute and compare the part number to the print out, even though I was the only one at the register and that prick watched me pay for it.


    Sounds like a solid business model if I've ever heard one.

    Not Circuit City, dude, They had plenty of new release CDs on sale for 7.99-9.99. I remember because I bought them. Maybe you're confusing them with FYE.

    Cool maybe they can repopulate all of the shitty box stores that were left abandoned that no one can use.

    Hopefully they'll take down Best Buy before they go out of business this time.

    The last thing I ever bought there before they closed here in San Diego was Mezzanine by Massive Attack.

    I loved Tower Records! I would drive 20 miles out of the way to get to the ones in this area. You could get shit there that you couldn't find anywhere else.

    I think the last thing I ever bought at a Circuit City was a SeaGate 200GB external harddrive for $250 :facepalm:
