    Well, I hardly think Verizon is single-handedly responsible for Circuit City’s bankruptcy filing, but could it be portentious for Verizon’s future I wonder? New smartphones are hatching like chickens all over the wireless landscape with nary a peep from VZW on anything to date.

    Circuit City blows and so does Verizon. Damn Natzies!

    Going exclusive to any one carrier is always a bad idea. I heard that is the reason why RadioShack dropped Verizon and went to AT&T, because Verizon wanted to be the exclusive carrier.

    I’m sure there are lots of other factors contributing to the bankruptcy of Circuit City.

    Let’s not lose sight of the fact that Circuit City has been getting hammered for years. Best Buy offers better pricing, selection and service in a physical store and Internet stores offer infinite selection and better prices. This is just another example of a bad company that can’t survive a downturn.

    I for one stopped buying at Circuit city because of their idiot managers who would rather lose a bonafide sale because he didn’t want to price match a TV… exact same model because sears wouldn’t have the TV until the next day. Thanks Circuit city.. I have now purchased 3 lcd TVs from Sears… close to 5k…. dopes.

    Another reason I refused to buy there.. I will not buy a product if it has a Rebate on it. I feel rebates are the biggest scam going.

    No stores in my area are closing and I’m glad because in this market, CC customer services is years ahead of BB. It seems like every time I go into BB I either cant find help or they just dont care. From what I have read, they are only filing for banruptcy protection and will continue to operate but will close 155 unprofitable stores. I also read they secured a 1.1 billion dollar loan to continus operating

    They got what they had coming! 15 foot receipts for a 5 dollar rebate. Screwing their employee’s! Best Buy all the way!
