[QUOTE=ripit;1996503]I had thought they were going to be done in Feb. though, and thought it would be cheaper by now?[/QUOTE]
My local store is at between 30% and 50% on items now, but the higher discounts are only on accessory crap. Hard drives and enclosures are only 30%, media is only 40%. Everything gets reset to list price during a liquidation, so for example, a 20x CompUSA brand hard drive is list priced at $60, so 30% off only brings it down to $42. We beat that at NewEgg every day. Heck, even good sales at Staples beat that. When it drops to 40%, then it will still be $36, and still too high. You’ll have to hit 60% to even get a deal, but the drives will be gone by then. On media, a 100-pack of TDK media is also list priced at $60, so once again, you need a 60% discount for a decent deal, and who cares about TDK media? That’s why I snapped up the MCC 003 Verbs when I had the chance, because that was the only real deal.
The liquidation company will be done when it’s made as much money as possible. That takes precendence over any so-called timetable. Dates that you saw in a press-release mean absolutely nothing. However, they will be done soon, because stores are thinning out already. As I said, people are buying stuff overpriced, so they are on schedule.
