Maybe check your local CC .. got lucky myself.

Circuit City will be closing in three days. They used to sell the Pentax SLR and I found a brand new 40MM 2.8 limted DA lens they were selling for $135.

Looked like it had been found in back and put out with all the other stuff they were getting rid of.

I've been checking there daily. Unfortunately, no Pentax Stuff.



I'll be back in there on Monday to see what's left. Hope to pick up a couple of battery backups for my computers.

I went down to visit someone in Huntington Beach today and checked out the Circuit City at the Fashion Island Mall. It looked like they had received stock from somewhere else - they had quite a few XM radios, a small stock of TVs, miscellaneous DVDs and accessories and almost no photo/camera stuff at all. Well done on the 40mm Limited.

The Circuit Cities around here never had any Pentax DSLR Photo gear when they were open, so I expect they don't have any now.

Does anyone have any idea if there's still a CC open in the Atlanta area? I phoned every number I could find for the stores here, but they were all disconnected except for a couplethat had a fast busy signal.

The Huntington Beach store had a sign on it saying last 8 days. The Santa Clarita store was still open, but we didn't go in yesterday (I needed printer ink, had spent a fair amount of time in the Huntington Beach store earlier in the day so we ran into the Staples that's located near CC). They had said they were planning on closing everything in March, so it looks like they will be all closed in early March.

Popped into the local CC this afternoon. Not much left on the shelves and they appeared to be priced at phantom discounts! Turns out the 50%, 60%, 70% discounts are from original prices..some of which were much higher than what one can get ordinarily at Best Buy or other stores. When CC applied their liquidatioin discounts, the net savings was only in the order of 10%-20%. For e.g. they had a 4 GB SD card for $21.99 after their 70% discount. I purchased one for $19.99 a few weeks ago at BB...go figure!

You are fortunate to have gotten the DA 40mm for that price. Hope others have had better luck than I.
