Circuit City Closes Its Doors

More than 34,000 people who worked for Circuit City are out of a job or starting a new one after the company officially closed its doors.

Circuit City was the nation's second-largest consumer electronics retailer. On Sunday, its 567 remaining US stores closed for good.

For the last month and a half, a group of four liquidators have conducted going-out-of-business sales, selling its remaining 1.7 Billion dollars worth of inventory. Circuit City filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November.

Circuit City began 60 years ago as a television store in Richmond, Virginia.
