A bunch of compusa stors are closing in the US.
everything is 60-80% off in most the stores...
Displays, racks, shopping carts, etc. all for sale as well.

I picked up some great deals:
$280 in photo paper (13x19) $78
$700 printer (color laser) $250
$11 500 sheet reams of paper less than $3.50
$57 100 blank DVD's $10
$330 in ink and toner for $127
Etc.

I drove by one today and they had employees outside waving signs.

Will you miss that store?

tiedeman 05-06-2007 03:40 AM

It seems like the whole economy is going down in the drains.

I personally feel we have been in a recession now for about 5 years

No...not realy. There must be 20 other stores that have the same stuff. But it was nice to have them as an option.

We went to 2 of them and 1 had nothing left, but some shopping carts and colored paper.
The other 1 had much more, we might have to go by 1or 2 more stores today and see whats left.

I would be willing to bet that a lot of the stuff that was sold will end up on eBay, based on the fact some people were buying 100 of the same thing...lol.

I had read somewhere that BestBuy and their 'Geek Squad' were instrumental in knocking CompUSA out of business.

It still amazes me that we don't have more nationwide computer stores. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/...ticons/mad.gif

we have a micro center about 15 mins. away..
thats a nice place

Steve 05-06-2007 07:45 PM

I think there will always be a need for a local store to take your computer to when it has problems.

But then again, maybe people simply throw away their computers and buy new ones.

grounded 05-07-2007 04:59 AM

Compusa needs to go under!

They have the worst costumer service reps (in store), Corporate wont reply to your complaints, their advertised specials are limited to 1 per store (lol)

Try to get a advertised camera or whatever,from them - they will be sold out guaranteed and no rain check. Even if your first in line when the doors open.

Crash and burn baby.

Closing

tiedeman 05-12-2007 12:34 AM

Wow! Another closing huh?
