Bow your heads. CompUSA is closing all 103 stores around the country.
According to the AP, privately held CompUSA, controlled by Mexican financier Carlos Slim Helu’s Grupo Carso SA, said discussions were under way to sell certain stores in key markets. Stores that can’t be sold will be closed.
Gordon Brothers will also try to sell the company’s technical services business, CompUSA TechPro, and online business, CompUSA.com. The good news is that each location will run store-closing sales during the holidays. We’re planning a geek fieldtrip/photowalk to the SF location before Christmas.
