The Washington Post reports that Circuit City is closing 155 stores nationwide in an effort to reduce costs and weather the current economic storm.

So, what does that mean to us DC people?  Well, the stores that are closing (including locations in Baltimore, Beltsville, Marlow Heights, Charlottesville, Manassas, and McLean) will be closed tomorrow, November 4.  On November 5 they will open with store-closing sales.  All merchandise must go.

If you have your Christmas lists handy, this might be a good time to head to one and see what kind of pre-Black Friday sales you can find.
