Circuit City May Shut Stores, Cut Jobs
Circuit City’s advisers are trying to line up additional financing but so far lenders have shown little interest, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Why? The ailing department store chain on Friday said it would move forward with plans to liquidate its remaining stores.’], dims:[‘http://o.aolcdn.com/dims/PGMC/5/407/269/70/’%5D, showDisclaimerText:[”], disclaimerText:[”], CSS_Title:[‘#333333’], CSS_Caption:[‘#333333’], CSS_Disclaimer:[‘#333333’], CSS_Container:[‘#ffffff’], CSS_Border:[”], CSS_PhotoWell:[‘#ffffff’], CSS_photoHolder:[”], CSS_Buttons:[‘#2ea359’], CSS_BtnOver:[‘#1c7f40’], CSS_Scroll:[”], topMargin:[‘0,0,407,269,408,269,0,0’] } );

I see so many people bitch about customer service at places like these. Fast food joints too. Yet I don’t see any of the bitchers taking these underpaying jobs to deal with customer who want every thing for free but expect the best product and service that money can buy. We will be our own down fall and the funny thing about it is: WE WILL BITCH ABOUT IT!!!
They’re on Cityskoop.com every week with sales so it seems like they’re really trying to move merchandise. then again so is Best Buy. what a crazy time with Linens N Things also going under.
Keep their job one more day??????? If they had any sense at all, they would be working somewhere else.
Wow, sorry but politics aren’t applicable here, unless you’re talking about George Bush’s adminstration allowing businesses to run amok and then execs bail out with a lot of money leaving despair and destruction in their wake without an ounce of conscience.

I will tell you why Circuit City is going under. I went in there last year with my daughter to buy an IPod. No one asked me if I needed help. There were six salespersons standing around talking to each other. I went across the street to Sears and was waited on immediately. I have not been back to Circuit City.

SJILL0101 08:03:51 PM Oct 20 2008 Report This! You choose to forget the war in Iraq has plunged this country into this recession. Before Bush, we had a surplus, we now are so deeply in debt as a country, we will never see the end of it.Outsourced jobs by rich Republican CEOs.No one buys American anything anymore, not that there’s a whole lot of American goods to buy…No jobs, less you brave guys want to join the Army. My son went to Iraq twice for over 2 yrs. What does he say we accomplish? Nothing! NADA.But you go watch McC commercials and choose how you vote.There will be no stores left soon, each one we lose means no competition. Higher prices.————————————————————————————-Barrack will make us all even. He will implement his Socialistic plans. He’ll take from Joe The Plumber, and give those poor non-working stiffs. Each to his own needs etc. The “War” began well before the Iraqi invasion. It will come to our soil, eventually. I

ChristosStavros 08:43:27 PM Oct 20 2008 Report This! ALL of you IDIOTS you IDIOTS you IDIOTS that voted for Dubya-monkey ARE REAPING WHAT YOU HAVE SOWN!——————————————————————————————Chris, You ain’t seen nothing yet. This economy is going waaayyy dooowwnn. If you’re lucid, you’ll know that the main reason for our Economic/Financial meltdown, is the Majority led, Democrat Congress. They’ve quite openly protected, and defended the Thieves and looters, as they pilfered, and drained our treasury. Any company, Country, or entity who allows it’s leadership to be so grossly overpaid, should fail. When we, the citizens sit by, and watch Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Merrill Lynch, and AIG, be looted, we’re complicit, by our inactivity. We really deserve a deep depression, more severe than the one in the 30’s. It would be cruel justice, but we deserve it. Dennis

Why one more Christmas? One last fill of the pockets and then run? One last bonus check for the execs who are already making high six figure salaries? Nobody likes this store any more. Its got a fatal flaw. Their retail image is irreparable. Just close now and forget it. Who are you trying to fool? What are you going to do, stiff the employees on Christmas Eve??

To Gangary214 At the time the comissioned salespeople were let go it was attributed to a “model” Best Buy was successfully using and killing Circuit City in market share acros the country …it wasn’t about putting a few $ in the poor pockets of salespeople who really cared it was about putting a few $$$$ in the rich top level managers and appeasing the stockholders
