Many locations are reportedly closed already after running out of inventory

The saga of Circuit City trying to save itself from extinction has been rather long and drawn out. The company first tried to sell to Blockbuster, which didn’t work out. The company then said it would close select stores around the country and proceeded to do so.

However, it took little time for the electronics retailer to come back and announce that it was in fact going to be closing all of its locations around the country. The employees were let go and liquidation firms came in to attempt to move the massive inventory left over by the defunct retailer prior to finally closing the doors of all locations.

According to the liquidation firms, the final day for operation of any Circuit City location will be Sunday March 8. Some locations are already shuttered up after running out of inventory to sell. So far, the massive liquidation sale that began in mid-January 2008 has moved $1.7 billion in inventory.

Scott Carpenter from Great American Group said in a statement, "Thanks to record shopper turnout at many of the store locations and the attractive discounts offered on all merchandise, the sales actually went quicker than we expected."

Some locations may be operating throughout the weekend making for the best deals you will find before Circuit City is nothing but a memory.





"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
