Once the big markdowns start, I'll do my usual cd aisle vulture thing.

It's not in every state just yet. It was only in about 6-8 states. I know for sure Minnesota is one of them. I only looked for my 2 states, MN and AZ.

Personally, I haven't shopped there in quite some time. I feel bad for all of the people that will be out of work, though.

They are supposed to start liquidating inventory as early as tomorrow, so if you're in the market for a new TV...
So companies are going bankrupt in America also? If my mum's employer is not bought by the CO-OP she could be out of a job by February, because Wincanton Logistics could go bust. They've already closed two big warehouses. She's always worked hard as well. No doubt this will delight some people around here.

I went to CC yesterday to get an internal hard drive for my laptop.

The prices weren't low enough to bother with so I went to Best Buy instead.

I love that store so I really hope not.
Really? I hadn't heard about that.

I stopped in my local Circuit City yesterday to scope things out and was reminded why I can't stand that place. I don't need to go back even when cds are 50% off. There is nothing in that store that I need.

went in today out of curiosity and it's too early for the good deals. They only had 10 to 30 percent off. TVs were only 15% off. I bought 2 PSP games for my son, they were 10% off and pretty picked over so I didn't want to wait on those.

Yes, this isn't good. I actually have a Visa Circuit City Rewards card (yes, go ahead and laugh now). I just cashed in my points. Hopefully, CC will be around when I get my certificate in the mail.

The reward certificate probably won't be any good since the liquidation company is now controlling things.
