CompUSA Down The Tubes

Finally, something solid comes out of Dallas. According to a post on CNN Money, the once major technology retailer, CompUSA will be closing it’s doors after this December’s holiday season.

The sales associates were slow, and their stock was low on the most basic items like wireless routers. Perhaps my experience could be attributed to just low stock and a rainy day, but I don’t think so. You must admit, it makes you wonder.
