CompUSA to Close All Good Guys Stores
In a move to unify its retail operations, CompUSA announced that it is closing all 46 stand-alone Good Guys locations, which includes 45 locations in California and one in Reno, Nev.
But the name will not disappear altogether. Company spokesperson, Kate Means, says that the name will live on inside CompUSA locations, as the company expands the home entertainment sections of its traditionally computer-centric stores.
The move is seen by company president Larry Mondry as a reaction to consumer demand for one-stop-shopping. "As home entertainment products become more prevalent among consumers, the need for stand-alone, high-end home entertainment retailers is declining," he said in a company statement. "As a result, we made the decision to close all Good Guys locations."
