Circuit City, an electronics retailer that went out of business in 2009 as yet another victim of consumers’ move to e-commerce, apparently is going to take another shot.

First, it is going to start as a website.

The Newark Star Ledger reports that the company will launch a new site on February 15 that “will offer videos, virtual vignettes, search-by-photo, augmented reality and real-time tech support via video chat. IBM Watson will serve as a personal shopping assistant online.”

Later, the story says, “Circuit City plans to sell products in kiosk and through a store-in-store concept. Showrooms will open on a yet-to-be-determined day. Among the items to be sold are audio/visual, computers, gaming, imaging, small appliances and smart-home products.”

I’m sure they’re hoping that the new attempt will be an Eye-Opener.

Me, I’m waiting for the return of Crazy Eddie, which presumably will be located within the walls of new EJ Korvette stores, right next to A&P kiosks.
