In a Few Places, CompUSA Survives
The CompUSA retail chain may have been liquidated, but a handful of stores bearing that name will remain, thanks to a decision from Systemax, Inc., which purchased 16 stores from CompUSA’s liquidators and will re-open them under the CompUSA name. The stores will re-open, probably in March or April, in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Texas, as well as in Ontario.
The Dallas Morning News reported last week that the new stores will retain some of the previous chain’s existing inventory and hire back some employees.
Systemax also owns TigerDirect stores, and TigerDirect.com.
