Circuit City’s Pulling the Plug, but RadioShack is Still Profitable?

After 60 years of business, the consumer electronics chain Circuit City is pulling the plug. Every last store and all its the merchandise will be liquidated beginning today.

If you’re in the market for music, movies, video games, televisions, computers, or other electronics, go check out your nearest Circuit City, you’ll probably get a good deal. However, I wouldn’t recommend getting anything like a hard drive or other expensive items that are prone to failure, as I don’t expect them to have a friendly return policy if they have one at all. Personally, if I buy anything from them, it will small ticket items like blank CDs, cables, printer ink, music, and movies.

With that in mind, The Onion raises an excellent question in this hilarious article:

Even CEO Can’t Figure Out How RadioShack Still In Business

Honestly, how does RadioShack make money? I have been wondering that ever since I stepped into my first one as a five year-old. The store has all of the appeal of a prison cell, and it has never had good prices. Believe it or not, they are actually profitable!
