    When it rains it pours. 34,000 people are losing their jobs in the US. How sad.

    Ridiculously sad. I always wondered how both CC and Best Buy stayed in business. Especially since they're always within a mile of eachother. They were usually within $20-50 of eachother on big ticket items.

    I made several big ticket electronic purchases last year... all from internet electronic retailers.

    Even with shipping a 40lb television it was cheaper online?

    Yep... by quite a bit, in fact. There are some great deals on the internet from very reputable etailers. If you had to return something that was defective that may be a problem but knock wood I didn't have to deal with that. Although, that certainly was something I had to consider when purchasing online.

    I haven't been all that impressed by Best Buy, either.

    The Big Box mortar and brick electronic retailer will always have their place but they're going to find it difficult to compete price-wise with etailers. And who isn't trying to save a buck these days?

    we bought a DLP TV from Crutchfield and a LCD TV from BuyDig.com.

    Perfectly satisfied with my transaction with them in all respects. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with either of them again.

    I'm not surprised by this. I haven't walked into a Circuit City in years.

    Circuit city wasn't great, but Best Buys is the most pathetic excuse for a store. I hate that store with a passion.

    PC Richards, Electronics Expo and MicroCenter are the stores to go to.

    Re: Circuit City will not be down for breakfast

    Circuit City was in trouble even before the crisis. This was a poorly managed company from top to bottom.

    They got what they deserved, though it sucks for those employees who are out of a job. Doubtful, that the CEO and the board of directors are stressing much about their next job.

    Crutchfield is great. They have products that are next to impossible to find anywhere else and great customer service. I've purchased from them several times and have never been disappointed. They really know what they're doing.

    BTW, here's a link for some Crutchfield coupon codes for discounts if anyone can use them:

    Best Buy at least you could find things....I went into a Circuit City here in Huntington, and wanted to find some DVD's...was looking for "The Green Berets" with John Wayne. Couldn't find it...you know why? It was under W for Wayne!!!! Most of their titles were alphabetical by title, but then some were under the actor...WTF?

    Then...a while later my son wanted to get some new video games...so we tried them again...and all their titles were behind the counter. How was a 10-year old supposed to browse the games, if they're 20-30 feet away? He didn't know what game he wanted, he wanted to browse...

    Stupid effing store...

    I bought my new 32" TV through Dell's website; I spent less than $600 on the whole thing including tax. I was considering CC but I saved at least $50 buying it online. Best Buy's prices weren't really even close to what I was willing to spend.

    Circuit City is where I purchased my Wii a few years ago; they were the only store in the Boston area in stock.

    ...and that's the only time I ever went to the place.

    ^This.

    I have a friend that had worked his way into a management position in the company. He said he was shocked at how poorly money was spent, resources were allocated, and he said the general quality of employees was lacking. He told me last year he expected full liquidation by sometime this year.

    Re: Circuit City will not be down for breakfast

    I've never really understood why people shop at Circuit City or Best Buy. I think the last time I bought something at either place was 2002, and I "needed" to get something they happened to have left in stock while other places had run out. I didn't shop there much before, but I decided never to go back when a security guard asked to see my receipt 3 feet after I left the checkout line (and had already put the receipt away in my workbag).

    But I usually shop online if I'm focused on cost or at higher end independents if I want service. The Circuit Citys of the world seem stuck in between.

    hopefully we get some good deals out of this.
