Yes, it was really nice when it started as Computer
Warehouse. I can
remember when the parking lot was jammed and getting in and
out of the
shopping center was a problem. Then they changed their name
model and bought out the competition down the street. Along
the way the
Harvard MBA crowd took over and tried to run it like the NY
shop they had studied in their case study.
I went in several months ago and it looked like a morgue and
customers were to be found. It did not create a sense of
interest in what they had. Everything was rearranged. Even
billionaire cannot let a chain of his stores keep
hemorrhaging money for
I regularly go to Microcenter before or after tacos to see
stuff and deals. It does not feel like a NY sandwich shop
gruff guy behind the counter.
