A hit for everyone else too in the short term

The Circuit City failure is going to be very painful for an awful lot of people. Tens of thousands out of work. Thousands of their suppliers and auxiliary companies hit hard.

Their competitors who survive will take a short term hit as well as people flock to get discounted deals.

If you are one of those people doing just that REMEMBER fill out those warranty cards with the manufacturer and/or hit their web sites to register. You won’t have someplace to return stuff so protect your investment as best as you can.

And remember if you do have a computer tech problem, DaTechGuy can support you from anywhere in the world as long as you have a high speed connection.

Update: Full details of terms etc are available at the Circuit City Website.

    Circuit City sealed their fate when their brilliant management thought it would be a good idea to fire all their experienced and higher paid store staff in favor of min wage hires. BTW who actually buys stuff in B&M stores anymore? Online usually nets better prices and you don’t get scammed by the sales slime lying through his/her teeth to sell you the extended warranty. Yeah it probably helps Best Buy, but their are plenty of other options for purchasing electronic items. I wouldn’t bet on the long term health of Best Buy.
