We never had a Circut City here in Edmonton, but you are right, it just
looks like another Future Shop/Best Buy store. But it is still sad to see
them go, they were an institution when I was growing up. How many times my
Mom was shopping at Safeway, and we (me and my brother) ditched her to go
see what was new at the Shack.
( in Canada or here in Alberta, there was always a Radio Shack within 200
yards of a Safeway. I think it was law that all Shopping malls were set up
this way) :)
