Circuit City announces the 155 stores getting the axe

Just in case you’re wondering if your local Circuit City store is going to be open this holiday season, Circuit City just announced the list of the 155 stores closing ASAP. [PDF link] These stores will be shut down quickly, with Firedog employees and Roadshop installers allegedly getting cut today and the inventory transfered to other locations. Do not expect liquidation or blow-out sales as part of the reason for the closures is that the company needs the extra inventory.

On a personal note, I’m glad to see the store [3631] that I called home for 6 long years is not closing – yet.
