---------- FIX YOUR THINKING COMMENTARY ----------

I've been hearing similar comments around the area - that my local CompUSA (while one of the best performing in the country) is hurting - mostly due to non-returning customers for the service department. My local CompUSA has lost it's Apple department twice for failure to meet minimal standards in keeping certified and competent Apple Technicians. An Apple Store is coming to my area soon and would all but kill the Apple sales in CompUSA any way.

What they've been called over the years: The KMart Of Komputers / DumpUSA / NoComplimentsUSA /ComplaintsUSA
