No time to look this morning but didn't I read where someone just bought CompUSA lock, stock and barrel.......
I haven't seen it yet but they sure are having inventory clearances. 22" Samsung monitors @ $239 [the 1000:1 quality ones].
I heard some of the guys talking and heard Tiger Express mentioned but no real detail. I don't know who owns Tiger.
Just found this:

CompUSA closes shop
Posted by Erica Ogg
Forget Black Friday. For the best deals on gadgets and PCs this holiday season, look no further than your neighborhood CompUSA.
The embattled electronics retail chain was dealt its final blow Friday when it was sold to Specialty Equity, an affiliate of private equity firm Gordon Brothers Group. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but the immediate result is that Specialty Equity will close all 103 CompUSA stores in the United States
, according to a press release issued late Friday.
Gordon Brothers will "initiate an orderly wind-down" of each of the stores, the company says. That's great news for consumers looking for bargains. CompUSA will remain open through the holiday shopping season, presumably with "Everything Must Go!"-style signs.
It was clear all was not well at the retailer when in March it closed half of its stores due to pressure from bigger chains like Best Buy and Circuit City.
