Circuit City liquidates

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - On Saturday the Circuit City here in Albany began its liquidation sale as they prepare to close their doors.

"It's hard to find a parking spot," said Christina Leeke, Albany.

They stood in long lines to get deals from ten, twenty, even thirty percent off.

"I keep up with the news a lot and I heard they were closing," said Larry Chapman Jr., Leesburg.

Many are here simply because of the deals after hearing the store is going out of business.

"Stuff for my girlfriend, a gift card and stuff for her to use on her Zune," said Chapman Jr.

Like Chapman other shoppers like Christina Leek say even though the economy is tough, she didn't want to pass up the deal on a DVD player.

"It's crazy I mean the economy is so bad these days it's horrible, but they got good deals so you might as well get it while you can," said Leeke.

Vernon Zick drove to Albany from Thomasville.

"I'm not looking for anything in particular, but just to see what they have," said Zick.

But what good deals are to be had for shoppers, employees here will soon be out of a job.

For associate Travius Reed it's twice as hard, he's also employed at the Albany Cooper Tire plant slated to close.

"I know something good is going to come out of both of them so," said Travius Reed, Circuit City Employee.

He's been here since November and is taking the news in stride, as he plans for another job loss in a matter of months.

"When one door closes another door opens so it's just a stepping stone for me, you just got to keep moving on," said Reed.
