wait, all of them are closing their doors, or just the one that you bought your laptop from?


BTW, extended warranties are a scam.

Jesus Christ. $150 for a warranty on a circuit city headunit/subs. They don't even carry any high-end audio.

Good that it worked in your advantage, but I'd have a hard time laying down an extra $150 for a "warranty"

Circuit City announces store closure plans, full list of locations revealed

by Laura June, posted Nov 3rd 2008 at 10:34AM
Yesterday news broke that Circuit City would announce the imminent closure of 155 retail locations, and this morning the company confirmed the news. Detailing its next plan of action in a lengthy press release, the electronics-maker blames "waning consumer confidence and a significantly weakened retail environment" (amongst other things) for the closings, and says that it's considering "all available options and alternatives for the business." In the short-term, this means that we'll see store closings in 55 markets from coast to coast, and the retailer will axe 17 percent of its workforce. The company also plans to begin store closing sales this Wednesday, November 5th, so they're clearly not wasting any time with the process. We've got more info in the read links below, as well as a full list of the closing stores -- if you're an employee, we hope your number isn't on there.
