CompUSA: It Lives!

After it died, CompUSA was bought by Tigerdirect, and here are some of the first pictures of the freshly awakened PC retailer. Even better, the zombified store is reported by reader Martin B. to be better than its pre-undead version:

It's a much better store than it used to be, full of components, motherboards, and lots of actually _helpful_ people who know computers.

DISCUSSION

All three of the CompUSA stores near where I live (Redmond WA) shut down in the first round of store closings last year, and all three have sat empty since then. Of those, two are basically right next to Best Buy stores, and the third is in an old shopping center that has been circling the proverbial drain for years, and the space is probably going to end up getting redeveloped out of existence anyway. It would be nice to have someone to actually compete with Fry's on price and selection though; Best Buy and Circuit City never have what I'm looking for, and Fry's is usually too expensive.
