Still, the company had 567 stores the States and 765 retail stores and dealer outlets in Canada at the end of 2008. Around 30,000 employees are to expected to loose their jobs.

Circuit City doesn't expect any value will remain after is sells its assets and pays off its creditors, and equity holders are to end up empty handed at the end of the proceedings.
