Fact is these stores were riding the tide of new technology and a housing boom that supplied lots of loose money. Things like Bizrate | Find Deals, Compare Prices, Read Reviews & Save Money have cutting into their profits as well.

Too much stupid crap like this:
AudioQuest - Diamond 2' High-Speed HDMI Cable - Dark Gray/Black - 65-083-14
Yep I recall when I bought my HDTV, and all the cables they wanted to sell me.

I got the TV department manager, tried to work a deal on the TV. And showed him what I wanted in the sound.

So he made an offer about the top of the line sound system (I hope my neigbors don't mind it at 1AM)

So I got $150.00 0ff the price of the sound system and all cables. And I had one I had to return later after the install.

Which I asked if they might leave enough cable so I could move it around as I was also buying new furniture for that room.

It is so tight I can't even get to the back for the serial number to register it with Sam Sung.

And most people don't even try to make deals. So thats what they count on along with what FF 66 said in his post. Which I agree with.
