I haven’t shopped at a physical CompUSA in a long time, especially since they’ve already closed all of the stores that used to be in my neck of the woods – the closest one is 38 miles away. I think I have picked up a couple of things from their website here and there, more recently, but they’re not the first place I tend to look. And I guess I’m not the only one, since they’ve been sold to the Gordon Brothers Group, a restructuring and investment firm.
The remaining 103 CompUSA retail locations will remain open through the holiday season, with discounts on computers and electronics, before being shuttered. So there could be some good deals as they look to clear out the stock in the remaining stores. The remaining CompUSA assets will be sold off piecemeal, and there are discussions underway about selling off their services business, CompUSA TechPro, and the CompUSA.com online business.
So keep an eye out for clearance sales if you have a CompUSA in your area. Sometimes you can get some very nice deals when a retailer liquidates their stock.
