43 Stores That Have Closed & You Will Never Be Able To Shop At Again
In the mid-80s, CompUSA was founded as a small chain that primarily sold computer parts. As the industry grew, so did CompUSA. The company eventually started selling computers, computer hardware, computer software, video game consoles, and other small electronics in its numerous locations. The chain struggled in the early 2000s, as fierce competition from Best Buy and similar big box stores affected sales, and they never found a way to compete in a significant way. By 2012, CompUSA was gone, and itâ€™s long since been sold to a competitor, who maintains it only as a website. The computer superstore, which so many remember fondly, is no more.
