Ex-Circuit Citys Replaced by Best Buy, hhgregg
With the dispersal of Circuit City's assets winding down, more and more of the defunct retail chain's stores are being converted, often to locations of its rivals, such as Best Buy and hhgregg.
Best Buy will take over a former Circuit City in Greenwich Township, Pa., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for Sept. 13, the local Express Times newspaper reported this week. The store is in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley region.
Meanwhile, two former Circuit City locations, in Memphis, will be replaced by hhgregg locations. According to the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, hhgregg plans to open this fall in The Commons by Wolfchase Galleria and Southaven Towne Center.
