Instead of circuit City, they would be called for example Circuit City by BestBuy. Its all perfectly legal and the millions of dollars of debt that they had no longer exsist because in papers "Circuit City" no longer exists.

Loopholes in the system eh?

P.S, it like to add that this isn't necessary what happen to Circuit City
Well said.
That's unfortunately also one of the major reasons smaller retail companies are going under... its becoming a corporate game that no one else can afford to play anymore. But is that a good or bad thing, I wonder, for us the consumers?
