When is a bargain not a bargain?

[ #38251 ]

So how do the liquidation prices compare overall? Because only part of the Circuit City chain is going out of business, it was a rare opportunity to compare prices at regular stores run by the company with those at closing stores run by the liquidators. The two are not connected.

One example: We saw a Samsung HDTV that was only available as an open box item at the liquidation store and cost $1,799 with all sales final. But at Circuit City's regular stores it was available for $1,599 brand new — $200 less, plus we could return it.

Very interesting, as decribed by ABC news, found via LOLFed.

And curiously, if you have gift cards for Linens 'n Things or Circuit City, both chains are still accepting them at their liquidation sales. Unlike Zavvi.
