CompUSA closing down

CompUSA is leaving the Chicago area and the downtown store (101 E Chicago), at least, has started (modest) clearance prices. Oddly, they’re not using any of their street facing windows to advertise the sale, but once you’re inside there are banners advertising that everything is “up to” 20% off. As of this writing most items are 10% off, and they’re also not honoring national sales prices, which means that commonly discounted items like CD-Rs (what I happened to stop in for) are actually slightly more expensive than usual. You should also note that all sales are final — they stamped the phrase on my receipt in three separate places. All that being said, there are some bargains to be found.

    Good riddance. Overpriced, undergood, and the longass escalator ride was the only thing going for it. Can’t wait for the Best Buy to show up near us by Canal and Roosevelt.
