The first time I ever saw a Mac in real life it was at a CompUSA. If it hadn’t been for a CompUSA I would probably have never seen a Mac, or gotten a chance to try one out – and who knows if I’d ever made the switch.
The CompUSA in my local area has been closed for years, and from what I understand the ones that were still open were terrible places to shop. So it’s really not a surprise that CompUSA is gone. The company has been been purchased for liquidation, and any surviving stores will probably be closed up by the end of the year.
It’s a shame, to me anyway, to see one of the only chain stores that ever really had Mac stuff in them go out of business – but if they’ve been bad places to shop with horrible service, then I guess the company is getting what it deserves.
