    Circuit City & Blockbuster
    Anyone think a merger makes sense?
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    It sounded odd to me at first, too, but in some ways I think there could be a lot of synergy.

    They both buy a ton of DVDs, so they could probably get some further breaks on pricing there. They could integrate mini-Blockbuster stores inside of Circuit City stores to further increase Blockbuster's presence (and also increase foot traffic into Circuit City). They could put a small selection of high-margin electronics in Blockbuster stores.

    both use to have stock that was valued in the 20 to 30 dollar range
    both now have stock that is worth less then 5 dollars

    Both are struggling
    Both will continue to struggler

    BlockBuster should be bought out by BestBuy not but Circuit City

    Why bestbuy?

    Both Blockbuster and BestBuy are Blue and Yellow and both have the same initials. BB

    That's a weird rationale, but I like it
