By now, you probably know Circuit City went bankrupt, failed to find a buyer, and eventually decided to just call it quits and shutter its 567 U.S. retail stores. Well, now we know when the last stores are finally closing down: March 8.
According to a press release up on Business Wire, the four companies handling "going-out-of-business sales" at Circuit City retail locations say some stores have already shut down for good because of depleted inventory, and the remainder will close on Sunday. Liquidations have been going on since January 17, the day after Circuit City said it was going out of business.
With CompUSA gone since December 2007, the closure of the final Circuit City stores should leave Best Buy with the lion's share of the consumer electronics retail market in the States.
