See it is all your fault basically because you do not buy anything there so they went out of business  ;D :D

Personally I think it is a shame but that is the way they do business these days.

They sold to many products that needed rebates to get a decent price.

Actually, I think the biggest problem was that the only way you could get a good price on something was when it was on sale and had rebates.  Their regular prices are definitely high compared to all the online resources.  The only time I really  bought things in there was if it was on sale with a rebate and came out cheaper than the online merchants or I really had to have a replacement part for a computer that was down.
Oh well, the good news for me is that the Rochester/Henrietta store is not closing and I go to Rochester and east quite frequently, so I can still get deals when they're available.  ;)
