Circuit City Informative - Going Out Of Business Ripoff Sale
MELBOURNE, FLORIDA -- Upon visiting Circuit City on January 25, 2009 I found that the prices of items in this store had been marked up prior to a 10-30% price slash. When I mentioned this fact to one of the employees, I was told that the liquidators did it. As an example of how much the prices had been raised prior to the "price reduction", there was a laptop computer I had been considering for a period of time. I went to the store located on New Haven ave. to see if the price had been reduced. Much to my dismay, the price had actually been raised by $100 prior to a 10% markdown.
Needless to say, I did not purchase the laptop.
