Circuit City to Open New Prototype
New York City, Circuit City Stores Inc. will be rolling out a new prototype store in June, according to a report by Reuters. John Mulleady, VP for real estate and construction at Circuit City, announced the prototype at the National Retail Federation's (NRF) annual conference in New York City on Sunday.
Although he did not give many details, Mulleady said the prototype would build on the consumer electronics retailer's efforts to continually test new store types to better appeal to today's shoppers. Mulleady said Circuit City is working on building 300 new stores in the next two years.
While Circuit City has stores in Canada, Mulleady said "not today" when asked if the retailer was looking at additional international expansion.
