Circuit City: It’s Going Down (And So Is The Sticker Price Of All Those G-Unit Albums)

this time theyre serious

Electronics retailer Circuit City announced that it would be closing and liquidating the remainder of its stores (567 in the U.S.), resulting in some 30,000 job losses across the country and lots of big “everything must go” sales. (Presumably since the whole chain is going under, the pickings will be a little less lean than the flop-heavy offerings Lucas stumbled across when he went to an earlier CC going out of business sale.) Man, between this and the forthcoming Times Square Virgin Megastore clearance sale, the average price of an album is going to plummet over the next few months! (Silver linings, people.) [Marketwatch]
