I think Circuit City was in trouble before the economic downturn so it's hard to say how much the economy pushed them to this move. I do know that I've only been in that store a couple of times. I always seem to go to Best Buy or Amazon for my electronics. I guess I like BB better because they have better customer service than CC. BB's sales people know their electronics and are always hanging around waiting to help (can be a bit annoying sometimes). I must admit that I'll go to BB and ask about something and purchase it on Amazon if the price is better. I wonder how much impact this closing will affect Fayetteville's sales tax collection. Hopefully another retail store will take CC's place real soon.

Does anyone remember that Circuit City, just a few years ago, was the best performing company in Jim Collins' book "Good to Great"? Obviously, Mr. Collins' approach to management is worth some reconsideration given the fall of Circuit City. It would seem a new approach to management would be worth considering.

I'm not surprised about circuit city fayetteville Ar closing the store their costumer service was really bad.I've been a CC's cosutmer for years(in CA) but when I moved to Ar.and visited this branch I was dissapointed the way they cared for the costumers.My last purchase at this store was a velodyne 12" sub-woofer.Costumer service is the key for a bussines to keep on bussiness.Thanks
