    Default CompUSA going out of business

    The website doesn't show anything yet, but if you go into your local store, everything is currently 15% to 40% off...


    Actually, most everything is 15% off with 1 or 2 strategic 40% offs thoughout the store.

    Ehh, in my area all the CompUSA's have had their going out of business sales like a year ago. They have been gone and closed up for a long time.

    They had some decent discounts then though. But nothing much better than what I got as a former employee for best buy. I didn't buy much of anything. Now that I don't work their I wish I had a compusa going out of business again. The discounts look much better than paying retail again

    We had several of them where I'm at. Now the closest one is an hour's drive away. I was going to go the the one that was still a half hour away, but it is gone now as well. I don't think I want to invest in a two hour round trip to see what they have.

    I had to find some random piece for my gf's ipod a while back and thats when I found out my CompUSA was going under. So I scored as much as I could...or just paid practically nothing for that piece.

    Dropped by the local Compusa yesterday and there was no apparent indication they were going out of business. I looked around and did not see any real deals. In fact most of their prices were higher than the local Micro Center and Fry's. That is the main reason I never buy there. They usually are more expensive than anyone but bestbuy.
