On Second Thought, Don't Expect Good Prices During CompUSA Fire Sales

News of CompUSA closing 100 stores brought visions of fire sales to our eyes (burn, prices, burn!), but our CompUSA insider says those fantasies may be just that.

As for close out sales, if you remember the KANSAS CITY store closings & 14 others, they did not make any good deals. Yet they just screwed people out of their money.

They ran normal sales through their flyers, and you could no longer return the product at any compusa. You did not get any good deals. They might run 10% and gradually go up a little bit. But they sold most of it to a Ebay wholesaler who bought it all for 4 cents to the dollar….

Oh, okay, just keeping buying stuff from eBay? No problem. — BEN POPKEN
