I agree.  In Michigan Linen’s n things is supposed to be going out of business- they had this huge liquidation sign posted.  Nothing was really on sale, just 10 percent off.  It was a little ridiculous.

I agree! I went to circuit city the first day.  The sales were lame anyways.  They are going to milk it out till their last day in March.  The reason they are jacking up the prices is because they need to pay back money they owe. Customers are drawn to discount signs thinking they are getting the best deal in town.

People were lining up like it was a black friday sale. haha. 

I’m going to wait till March before I go back in.

I saw an article comparing the costs at circuit city’s "going out of business" sale to the cost at other retailers right now.  Even at 10-30% off, the "sale" price was at least $100-$400 higher on big ticket items and a good 20% higher on smaller items.  I know companies tend to up the price before a sale like this, but this is ridiculous.

yeh i think it just depends. and if you go in knowing what it retails for, the better off you are. we snagged a blender and fancy coffee maker for half off at linens n things. these were items that we were eventually going to purchase so we knew their regular price. they’re also items that don’t really go on sale. so i say we scored. but be careful out there. that’s definitely not always the case. and as far as circuit city, i was expecting big price cuts… but 10% for a tv, please. there are plenty better deals out there!

ever seen the adam sandler movie ‘don’t mess with the zohan’? a guy in there owns an electronic store named ‘Going Out of Business’.  hilarious.
