SHERMAN, Tex. ― After Circuit City announced earlier this week its Sherman store would be among the locations closing later this year, bargain hunters were lined up outside the door for the first day of the store’s liquidation sale.

While no firm closing date yet, Circuit City corporate officials say all of the 155 stores closing across the nation will be closed by December 31.

Nonetheless, folks lined up to get a good deal Wednesday morning in Sherman.

Store managers still said they could not comment, but many customers like Sherry Brisco did.

“That’s a shame. I hate the store closing because I know it's going to lose a lot of people their jobs, and we need a lot of jobs in this town. I hate that. We're just now getting big like Dallas and getting nice stores and then this one has to go out, and it's really a shame," Ms. Brisco said.

We tried to find out what the Circuit City store closings would mean for the distribution plant in Ardmore, but corporate officials say they have no plans for the plant workers at this time.

    e-commerce is getting more and more popular. this creates the need of having good tools to help shoppers make right decisions while buying online. is a place where shoppers can recommend or bury a product, share experience and discuss shopping deals.

    To: Angry Consumer - My comment regarding guns is the fact that I 'feel' like if I go there to buy any type of electronics like a big screen television, computer, etc... I need a gun to protect those items in my own home. I'm not a violent person, but don't test me by robbery. I think it would be nice to buy a big screen and a gun to protect it at the same place.

    I went in and checked their "sale" yesterday. Its not much of a sale. There was one TV there, a plasma I believe, that had a previous sale sticker of $999.00 on it still. However, in the current close out sale, this baby was a bargain at $1149.00. They also had DVD's, plenty of which have been on the $9.99 racks for months now, listed at $14.99 and then reduced 20%. No wonder Circuit City is having economic woes!

    You know I am sitting here sipping on a cold one and something has become clear to me. We are going to see a lot more of this kind of stuff. Corporate CEO's will be cutting and cutting and cutting at low levels to keep their big fat pay checks coming. All these chain stores will be no more. Any Mom & Pops that have survived our "growth" stand to see some profit for a change. All us low level people won't be buying IPODs and Wii's, we're paying utility bills and buying groceries for our kids. Eventually it all comes back around to what we need, not what we want.

    No, I'm not one of the people who had been complaining about bad service. Today was my first visit to the store. I only wanted to warn other customers of the pit falls of a good sale at Circuit City, Sherman. What on earth does guns have to do with any of this? You sound like a very violent person who doesn't need to shop anywhere guns are sold.

    I bought a computer there several months ago, got terrible service bought it anyway because it was an advertised sale wish i hadn't because it broke about a month later and they wouldn't do anything to help. I started at the store level asst mgr then the mgr no one was willing to help went to corp they werent willing either so i went to the ceo and nothing there either no customer service no store. good ridens i hate to see people loose there jobs but the higher ups are to blame.

    buyer beware! this is a third party liquidator and NO OTHER Circuit City will honor, exchange, replace or repair ANYHTING bought at this store. once you have purchased an item it belongs to you regardless of the condition when you open the box at home or even worse, Christmas!

    Are these the same people that were posting how bad the service is at this store? Too bad they don't sell guns.
