Here is pics I took today of the old circuit city thats now a P.C. Richard & Son. Of course I tried to take same pics that I did when it was a circuit city. (top one bein a panoramic picture)
I have yet to go in it as the pc richards yet, and they clearly weren't busy (god knows the employees wouldve bugged me to death since im guess they get paid by commision)

Circuit City was the fake sponsor for FOX's "The Cleveland Show" last week.
The slogans for the fake bumpers were
"Circuit City - There's still one left!"
and
"Circuit City - Even our name was bad!"

Ours is still empty, it briefly became Spirit of Halloween for Halloween, but then it sits empty again. They should tear the whole store down it's an eyesore.  :P

Meriden, Connecticut:

Savers - Opened August 2010.

Deal$ - Opened Late October 2010. Deal$ is owned by the Dollar Tree Coporation and seems to be like a Big Lots type store, but much cheaper. http://www.deals-stores.com/

And according to the website for Centro Realty there's still 6100 Sq. Feet Available for rent.

http://www.centroprop.com/LeasingBrochures/5109.pdf

This building was originally an A&P Super Foodmart. Years ago there was another building on this property that housed a Blockbuster, a Chinese restaurant, and several smaller stores, but they were all ripped down.

Basically it's on the same idea as the Dollar Tree stores, just that they offer items with different prices rather than just $1 (like $2, $3 etc.).  This way they can offer more items since they have a greater pricing range to work with.

If I remember correctly (only went in one once, since they aren't in this area of NY) they had it set up in sections with signs for the pricing (like all the $1 items, $2 items etc.).

It also was a separately owned chain at one point several years ago, and was then bought out by the Dollar Tree folks (I remember people discussing it at that time, since under the previous owners they accepted coupons (like Family $ and $ General do) and that stopped when Dollar Tree took over).

Edit: Late-January 2012 Updates!

North Olmsted, OH - Has been closed for years. Only other residents in plaza are a Giant Eagle grocery store and a Factory Card & Party Outlet. (FCO has recently closed. Isn't it owned by Party City? If so, it might have relocated to the NO Towne Center plaza in a new building in front of Target.) Still has original "angled plug" entrance present.

Elyria, OH - Closed with the company. Has been Halloween USA for two different Halloween seasons.

Parma, OH - Demolished; IIRC, its old lot is going to be home to a new Giant Eagle store.

Brooklyn, OH - Ridge Park Square - I think this one is now a Five Below, but I'm not sure. The old Circuit City is in the back "phase 4" building next to Lowe's, and is currently home to a Marc's Deep-er Discount Store. Five Below, contrary to prior belief, is way in the front of the RPS complex.

It's an Ultimate Electronics now, just like Holyoke. Gotta visit soon while they're still around.

Keene, NH Circuit City while it was still opened. Opened in 2005 when the plaza was developed, closed in early 2009 and the logo was quickly taken off. I happened to be eating lunch across the lot the day they took off the logo. It has been vacant ever since with nothing in sight. A couple posts up I posted pictures of what it looks like without the logo
