i've always prefered BestBuy over Circuit city, because BestBuy prices are usually lower. But its sitll a shame to see the store go down. But atleast in a month or so there will be some pretty good deals there

Once people know that CC is closing, they will think that they are getting good deals. They are not going to mark-down their high-end electronics at fire sale prices. Plus you have to remember that you are buying the stuff as-is, no returns. So if you buy a T.V. and it quits on you a day or two after the store closes, you are stuck with a paper weight. Caveat emptor.
