According to the company's Chapter 11 filing with the U.S. bankruptcy court in Richmond, Va., Circuit City, which currently has 566 operating stores in the United States, will continue to do business and pay its workers while it restructures debt and its business operations.
Circuit City said it decided to file for bankruptcy at this time to ensure that it would have "adequate merchandise flow to stores during the important holiday season."
The November-December holiday shopping months are crucial to retailers since the two months can account for 50% or more of merchants' annual profits and sales.
Just last week the Richmond-based company announced that it would close another 150 stores.
