Flicking off the Circuit: CC shrinks network

Anyone who has been in a Circuit City recently will probably have noticed the stench of death coming from the chain: the US electronics and entertainment store is struggling so badly, you can see it on the shelves. I'd assumed the nearest one to the bit of Denver I'm currently at - the Colorado Blvd branch - must have been earmarked for closure as the only way to explain the tired stock and the depressed-looking staff, but it turns out this is one of the branches that's been saved. What the 150 shops that are being wound down must be like, I shudder to think.
