Specifically, the page contains a letter from Systemax executive Gilbert Fiorentino explaining that Circuit City customers can prevent their personal information from being transferred to the new owners by opting out no later than June 9, and provides a link for those who wish to do so. Of course, they encourage them not to do so and promise to always respect customers’ privacy. Systemax is also the owner of consumer electronics retail brands TigerDirect and CompUSA.
Interestingly, just a few days ago Walmart announced it was stepping up its consumer electronics push in a bid to get a portion of the market left up for grabs by Circuit City. I guess nothing’s ever that easy.
