CompUSA To Close All Stores

According a Monday USA Today article, computer and consumer electronics retailer CompUSA will close all of its stores after the holiday season is concluded. The company will sell certain stores, but the CompUSA brand will be gone.

While this isn't really an IT story (unless you're a small business using CompUSA as your vendor and systems integrator), anyone who's purchased computer, networking or personal electronics gear over the last 15 years has probably used CompUSA on multiple occasions. I especially liked the ability to shop and place my order online, then drive down the street to my local store to pick it up.

Where do you buy your hobby gear, or make quick purchases to fix a problem? Will you be affected by the CompUSA closing? Open up to me at pvarhol@redmondmag.com.
