Circuit City Stores, Inc., issued a statement from Chairman and CEO W. Alan McCollough about the corporate air crash that happened earlier this week.
"Yesterday was a day of profound sadness as eight members of the Circuit City family and our extended family — four associates, two partners and two pilots — lost their lives in a plane crash," says McCollough. "Our first priority yesterday was to contact their families; and out of respect for their privacy, we have decided not to publicly release the names."
He continues, "We have all been touched by the outpouring of sympathy from our associates, friends, the Richmond community and from people all over the country. I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this time."
