Circuit City Is Coming Back!

Nearly nine years after going out of business, electronics chain store Circuit City is set to give it another go, it announced last week.

A website will roll out Feb. 15, Circuit City announced at 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. Twice.com was first to report the opening date.

Later, Circuit City plans to sell products in kiosk and through a store-in-store concept. Showrooms will open on a yet-to-be-determined day.

Among the items to be sold are audio/visual, computers, gaming, imaging, small appliances and smart-home products.

The website will offer videos, virtual vignettes, search-by-photo, augmented reality and real-time tech support via video chat. IBM Watson will serve as a personal shopping assistant online.

During its heyday in the 1980s and 1990s, Circuit City was the second-largest U.S. electronics retailer after Best Buy. Founded as Wards Company in 1949 in Richmond, Va., it changed its name to Circuit City in 1984.

After struggling for years, it closed its remaining stores in March 2009. As of late 2008, there were 19 locations in New Jersey.
