    Just wondering if anyone knew if Circuit City sold camera's. Seeing that they're in a liquidation state, I thought a person might able to get a good deal.

    Thanks

    Our CC was one of the first ones to go. It wasn't until they got down to the 70% off level that they were less expensive than Amazon.

    Their 'liquidation' starts with an immediate price hike back to MSRP, which virtually no one sells stuff at if they want to sell it at all.

    I'll have to check it out in a couple weeks. The closest CC is 1 1/2 hrs away. I'll be going to that city in a couple weeks to see what it looks like.

    That's what I think as well. The general public are suckers for buying just because something is listed for xx% off and never looking at what the original price is or what the "sale" price is over somewhere else.

    My wife is a sucker for this. She wanted to buy perfume at a local store's grand opening and it was $40 after 40% off. I took her elsewhere and bought it for $35 regular price.

    Ya alot of the prices still aren't competitive with online stores, but I have also heard some people coming out of their with EXCELLENT prices, like the guy who said he went there the other day and they were selling Canon 100mm 2.8 for I believe $318. On Amazon they are going for $480, so that was a steal. I'd say, go there now and check the prices, otherwise, you'll miss out on all the great deals. The only things that will be left when you go later will be the things with crappy prices.
