I’m too lazy to provide all of the links that backup this post, but I during my Web crawling at work today, I jumped on some forums and read a bunch of rumors that an investor stepped in to buy PC Club before it filed Chapter 7. Those posts were then swallowed by follow-up posts full of hand-wringing and uncertainty of sources.
Tonight, unable to sleep, I whimsically clicked on my bookmark for PC Club and lo and behold! The site is back up! Not a lot of parts are in stock and they have a very big ad for new employees (at all locations) in their frontpage array. Guess the old employees who lost their jobs with no notice are screwed.
Lets just hope that whoever replaces them are of the same caliber.
