Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's fairly simple.  Best Buy stores are nicer and cheaper than Circuit City stores.  Circuit City is the Dominos to Best Buy's Pizza Hut -- reliably discovering new degrees of awful vs. hardly five-star but at least consistent.  The stores are filthy.  The company chooses terrible locations.  (If you want a big-box retailer on the outskirts of town, the company's name had damned well better be either Wal-Mart or Target, or your competitors are going to rip your face off.)  Find me a product from Circuit City, and there's a better-than-decent chance that I can find it at CostCo, and I'll find it cheaper and sold to me by someone who doesn't give me a fucking attitude throughout the process.

This has nothing to do with pay and everything to do with idiocy.  The CostCo employee is (now) making a lot more than the Circuit City employee, and with benefits, as I understand it, yet CostCo still manages to compete well enough against a much larger adversary (Wal-Mart), while Circuit City has its clock cleaned.

Neither one carries Mac stuff, so fuck'em both.  I'm limited to CompUSA in the big-box electronics market.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
