Circuit City files for bankruptcy protection: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance Looks like it's just a precautionary measure, but still interesting nonetheless. Can't say I've every really liked circuit city up here in canada. They bought out the radio shack stores and changed them to 'the source'. Oddly enough though they still kept the same jack ass salesmen. I had about my last transaction in their store about 2 months ago when I bought a targus laptop lock took it home and found a split on the side of the packaging. upon closer inspection it looked like it was missing parts so I took it back (this is within less than an hour of purchasing it). I had phoned ahead and told them what happened and they were going to put one aside for me. I went in and ended up talking to the same guy who sold me the 2 locks before hand and the guy said that it wasn't like that when I bought it. He argued with me until I finally said 'look, so you think that I bought 2 of these, went home, broke the packaging and took out the little velcro peice? then came back to get a complete one why?' Finally the guy just said to take one off the shelf and that's what I did. I then saw him take the incomplete one and put it back on the shelf like nothing was wrong with it. Seriously. I expect slimy salespeople when I walk in there, but that really crossed the line with me. Personally, I'm half willing to hope that circuit city goes under if they continue to hire people like that.
