Virgin Megastore clearance sales: Deals you can ignore


We warned you a few months ago that the big Circuit City clearance sales were nothing to bother with. The trend of worthless fire sales continues with the mass closing of the Virgin Megastores. The deals, I'm afraid, just aren't good. Even with the imminent shuttering of every Virgin Megastore in the country, you can do better online.

The famous Times Square flagship (pictured) is already bolted shut, but many other Virgin locations straggle on, trying to clear their stock. They won't move too much with lame discounts like 20% off CDs and DVDs and 10% off clothes, which is what the location in New York's Union Square is offering despite a final day that's just a few weeks off. At the Virgin in Orlando, which closes May 31, the deals are similarly simpering.
