    The financial crisis had zilch to do with Circuit City’s demise. They were failing by 1999.

    I went to high school in Richmond, bought and had my car stereo installed at Circuit City. Best Products was another Richmond-based electronics retailer (also sold home furnishings, toys) that died in the late 90s.

    I believe Angryman1 is correct. That is when the board turned against Sharp and shut down DiVX. Not that DiVX was the future, but they just wanted to do what was easy. Talk about biting the hand that feeds.

    I was a software engineer for both CC corporate and DiVX, I miss the employee discounts.
