Circuit City Name Again Available
Could Circuit City rise once again?
That's a long way away from happening, but the Circuit City name is again for sale. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch Systemax, which bought the name following the original chain's liquidation and ran a CircuitCity.com e-commerce site for a time, has again placed the name up for sale, through Hilco Streambank.
The name and website fetched $14 million when Systemax bought it, but the company folded its online properties into the TigerDirect brand at the end of last year.
