Circuit City Powers Down

Today is the last day to benefit from the deeply slashed prices at the nation's closing Circuit City stores, NPR reports. Not everyone is pleased with the remaining selection of unwanted laptops and lonely printers, but shoppers are still finding deals, and the soon-to-be jobless employees seem to be doing their best to keep their spirits up.

"Seeing it go kind of does something to me a little bit," says one longtime customer. Another couple saw the sales as an opportunity to help their local elementary school by grabbing cheap furniture. The employees, who gave them an extra discount, "were playing soccer and enjoying their last evening of being in the store alone."
