News I found.

The following companies just filed for Bankruptcy:

> Hollywood Video
> Levitz
> Sharper Image
> Performance Team Freight
> Linens n Things
> Circuit City
> Bed, Bath and Beyond


> If you have gift cards from the above list use them ASAP, they will not
be valid for much longer.

I saw Hollywood coming.

Thanks for the info... I'm not surprised about Circuit City.. they hardly ever have anyone around here going to it.. and I have been in it once before and WOW... they really had not much to choose from

Several of them including Sharper Image already stopped accepting gift cards a couple weeks ago. Most of that list actually filed (or was planning to file) about 2 weeks ago.

So, they might of all stopped already.

As for Circuit City vs Best Buy...I have always liked BB better, more DVD selections.
