Circuit City is Back Online

Circuit City was one of the popular stores for electronics and they went out of business offline and online around 5 months back.

Circuit City brand, trademark and website have been acquired by a leading multi-channel retailer of computers, electronics and industrial products.

On May 19, 2009, Systemax Inc. purchased the Circuit City brand and website. Systemax Inc. has been in business since 1949.

And the website has been brought back to life under the new management. You can purchase items from the website like before.


Opt-out from

The purchase of the Circuit City brand included past customer information.

So, if you were a past Circuit City customer and do not wish for your information to be transferred to the new client, you can opt-out prior to June 9th.

The personal information that is going to be transferred includes name, address, email, phone and purchase history. It does not include credit card data or other personal financial information. You can opt to have even your basic personal information purged out of their system.

Check out the new website although I don’t think there is any redesign that went into this launch. I also found that they have a Twitter account and a Facebook page.

    Smart buy. I will bet that they will be able to get a great return on the investment. Circuit City did have a good brand – service was weak, but if you can turn it into the Amazon of electronics then it is a more effective business.
