Life Without Circuit City Begins Today
Circuit City's last stores closed Sunday, as the chain's liquidation sale finished nearly three weeks early. The chain's liquidation sale was scheduled to last through the end of March, or until merchandise ran out.
Circuit City announced in January that would liquidate, after failing to reach a deal to survive under new ownership. Just under 600 stores have lasted to the chain's end.
The chain opened 60 years ago, expanding nationwide starting in the 1980s.
