Circuit City Closing

In Elmwood Park (Grand & Harlem) and blowing out their "open box" inventory. i went there and bought 2 cameras and a flat screen TV for cheap. This is the Nikon I bought as a take along camera for under $100.00 and the other is a Sony.

They have some great deals still and I think tomorrow is their last day.

Thanks for the heads up. May have to go there during lunch. They are probably closing that store since they are building a brand new one about 1 block from Harlem and Irving.

I told a Best Buy employee that I gave Circuit City 1.5 years until they declare bankruptcy. Looks like I am pretty close in my prediction. I will be very happy when they finally go under. Horrible company all around.

Yeah, I saw the sign the other night that they were moving tonight. Too bad - was only about a block and a half from my house.

I always had good luck with them and never had a problem. I had a friend who use to work at that one years ago doing car radio insulation. I'm glad he has a different job now.

I did management for them in car audio. After I was hurt at work, they fired me and tried to starve my family. My daughter was only 2 months old at the time. I sued them and won - twice. I say good riddance, despicable company.

dude.
BB is supposed to be the worst there is!
google xbox and best buy
they have gotten nailed pulling all kinds of crap!

personally i generally try on my electronics there and then grab em online... cheeeep

that said.. i've never really had a problem at either of them.. I imagine how they treat their employees and customers is probably a bit different...

CC shitcanned a buddy of mine and an ex gf.. both for completely bogus reasons... oh well.. both of them have way better jobs now.. So I guess to that end it worked out...

I laugh when i See peeps posting about being fired from either of those places and are pissed about it. Welcome to Il. and it means you can quit and or be fired for no reason.

So look at it this way you took a hit got back up and went on doing better

Thank them for assisting you

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

My buddy worked at Best Buy for like 3 years. He hated that place with a passion. Apparently they treat their employees like shit. After I got a job at CompUSA, he asked me to get him a job there too (which I did). He liked working at CompUSA much better than Best Buy. Then CompUSA went out of buisness and my buddy got a job at NTB even though he could probably have gotten a job at Best Buy. I applied at Best Buy a couple times and never got called back, but my current job is better than a Best Buy job anyway.
