Circuit City news is no surprise

November 16, 2008

It is certainly no surprise that Circuit City has filed for bankruptcy ("Picture gets fuzzy for Circuit City," Nov. 11).

A couple of years ago Circuit City management decided to get rid of the experienced store employees in order to bring the payroll down to near minimum wage levels.

Practically overnight the atmosphere in the stores changed when the new employees couldn't get off their cellphones long enough to help the customers. That is when I took all my personal and corporate purchasing to other chains.
