Consumer electronics retailer CompUSA says it will close its stores after the holidays.
CompUSA closed more than half its stores this spring.

Frys has a higher tech head feel that Best Buy or Circuit City. Of course, I’m not sure if you thought CompUSA was better that BB or CC... I never did.
I’ll make my own thank you.
Thumbs up from a computer assembled by myself.
Have a look at this, if you haven’t already seen it.
That’s not an advertisement, either, BTW. I get nothing from that site or its subscribers. It’s the listing of lowest prices that I’ve seen, though. Various companies that sell low list their stuff there. ...hope that it helps you out.
I go to the big boxes to look, even Fry's, but buy on PW!
That’ll teach them to rip me off on a rebate.
Glad to see them go.
I will probably shop their going-out-of-business sale.
I wish there was a Fry’s near here (far from California). :-)
CompUSA was worstbuy, most expensive place I ever saw. Surprised they lasted this long. Now Fry’s Electronics is the best of them all IMO.
Call me slow, but why would Comp USA be sold, then closed? Market share?
“The success or failure of a company rests squarely on the shoulders of its management.” Henry Ford
My best friend is a Sr. IT Facilities Coordinator for CompUSA, they got an email Friday afternoon around 4:30pm telling them to call in for a pre-recorded message at 4:45pm letting them all know that they would all soon be unemployed...He says he should have gotten out this past spring when they were shutting down all the stores in the DFW area...
I’ve been using pricewatch for at least a decade—they’re my first stop for all PC-building needs, among other things.
I think they sold it to a “Jack and the Beanstalk” kind of guy.
Your friend will find a job fairly soon. The job market is certainly better in DFW than it was.
I worked there from ‘89 till ‘92. Still like the stores.
Its just not as compelling as in the past.
Call in to hear that you were going to be laid off? That is gutless. Typical Carlos Slim
I have a friend who lives near one of the guy’s houses in Mexico City. His description of Carlos is “Bolsa de suciedad”. Look it up.
They will need a team in place to liquidate as many assets as possible before pulling the plug. Mostly real estate holdings I would presume.
