The ones in my area at least were staffed with incompetant, lazy, smart assed people who either were not around to help you unless you were checking out....or couldnt help you....or would offer smart assed no content answers to your questions.

Anyhow....others in my area feel the same way..... our area circuit cities probably never saw the same customer twice.
200.00 tv back 1999 crap after 95 days 45.00 for a bench test and to send back to maqnufacture to see if they will cover warranty
screw you i just will never shop here again and thier response was so what
ok it might have taken ten years but it caught up to them
once you think you've seen it all
I would rather work for free than be look upon as a thief!!!!!
All the big box stores have some issues...no matter what one i step into i tell the sales person, if you mention your special extend warranty and repair thing i am leaving. I have walked out several times at best buy..one the TV was even loaded on a cart and he was pushing it up from for me to purchase when he brought up the damn warranty thing. I walked right out. I have never had a problem with H.H. Gregg or Circuit city if i told them up front.
Well that's a little nutz....
If I'm spending 4 grand on a 57" flatscreen tv, I want a warranty.
The local CC stores close here last November. No major deals. The whole poor management leading to poor customer service.
eff circuit city!!!
I was pricing garmin 780 GPS
Best Buy 269.00
Circuit City 599.00!!
Loser's, I hope their stores burn before they can liquidate!!
If you cant fix it right, try again.
What, you mean congress isn't giving them billions of dollars to bail their butts out like they've done to everyone else?

I went to our CC yesterday to buy 10 LCD TV's (yes 10..). I asked for a manager and got some guy with no name tag.. I told him I'd take whatever they had 10 of, 40" or larger. The guy actually said "cha-ching" and then grabbed some kid with an ear phone. They only had a 52" Samsung plasma in qty of 10+. Wanted $2099 for it, 10% off sticker. Too bad that was the same price I found in my newspaper flyer that morning at a competitor. They said "our hands are tied, we can't adjust any pricing". I walked out.
They aren't getting a bailout like all of the other incompetent businesses because they don't have a lobbyist throwing money around DC and getting in the pockets of our wonderful politicians.
When they bring up the extended warranty scam they sell I just say "this CC I am using covers it's own purchases......" and they buy it every time and shut up. Never failed to date.
