R.I.P. Circuit City

Circuit City was a force when it first opened in my town. Great service, good selection. Well stocked music section. Finally, I thought, a decent music store. But then things began to change. The CD section was a mess, rarely stocked with new releases on Tuesday mornings. The rest of the store was a search for someone with knowledge. A ho-hum attitude prevailed amongst the workers.
Now Circuit City is gone, and while I feel for the 30,000 workers now unemployed, I don't mourn the loss of the store. In the past few years, I rarely ventured inside it. On the few occasions that I did, nothing changed my perception about the place.
