So Circuit City (OTC:CCTYQ) is in trouble, and the press is reporting that the company has days to either be purchased, or liquidated. We can’t predict what will happen. All we know is that we went into the Sarasota store today, and there were customers.CircuitCity.com

That might show where the value lies. Busiest places?

  • The cellphone kiosk, with three staffers talking a handful of customers
  • The Ipod accessories area
  • The Firedog area, where folks were lined up waiting for computer help

The question becomes. What if Circuit City could keep those businesses if most of the rest of the company disappeared. Is that possible? Is that practical?Circuit City Sarasota

We raise a second question. We were looking at the Quantcast stats for the top 100 websites. And lo, between Typepad, and below FoxNews.com, is Circuit City. CircuitCity.com draws more Internet users than LinkedIn. Amazing.

Certainly, the retail operation feeds the online operation, but we bet that many people who shop online at Circuit City do not intend to go into the store. An astounding 9.4 million uniques a month. Wow.
