Circuit City now acquired by Systemax

These are the signs of the times. In recent news, word comes this morning that Systemax, who also owns the name and web presence of CompUSA, has won Circuit City’s name and web presence at auction - for $14 M. Systemax sells under the retail name of TigerDirect, which many geeks know and love. Systemax was the “stalking horse” approved to get all of Circuit City’s inventory last month.

Creepy, I just visited Circuit City's website stating this public message to the public. Just sad for a 60-year old company who has served many customers.

I wonder what's next this time?
