Comp USA used to be one of my favorite "brick and mortar" computer stores. I spent so much money in those places. I was very sad to learn a few months back that they were all closing. Then a little glimmer of hope arose when I read that Systemax, the company that owns TigerDirect was buying them. This turned out to become a resurrection for the Comp USA stores and they are reopening 15 of their previous stores and also a new one.
Granted, it must be difficult for computer retail outlets to survive, since you can buy everything they offer online, usually for much less $$$, but it's nice to be able to walk in to a store and see/touch/feel the merchandise. Plus, with stores like Fry's, (which is my all-time favorite...I would live there) that have both online and retail outlets.
Oddly, 13 of the new stores are being opened in Florida, including the new one. Two Texas stores and one in Puerto Rico are reopening.
I'm happy to see this familiar name back in business.
