Tons of electronics stores have bit the dust... Circuit City, Good Guys, Federated (West Coast stuff if you are not familiar with some of those)... and pretty much for the same reasons...

Overpriced Electronics
Unknowledgable Staff
Staff trying to strong arm you into extended warranties
Repairs that take forever when you bring the product in to be fixxed

Add Worst Buy's BS:
Bait and Switch Prices online vs. a store
Rebates that they almost never pay on
Warranties almost never honored
Extreme hurdles to return items

I'm kind of surprised they lasted longer than Circuit City (which wasn't quite as bad... but still pretty bad)

Don't forget the 200x mark up on their premium argon injected, platinum tipped, carbon fiber weave, unbotanium coated, gamma shielded connector cables.
