Bargain hunters snap up tablets at Computer City sale
Bargain hunters wasted no time snapping up Computer Citys remaining stock of iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tabs yesterday. The store is having a 20-percent off going-out-of-business sale through the end of the month.
A sales representative said the line was out the door during the morning as people queued up hoping to get their hands on the hot Apple iPad and other tablets that were selling for $700 to $1,200, but reduced 20 percent for the sale. All of them - just over a dozen, sold out.
Computer City sold out of almost all its printers yesterday too, the rep said.
We sold more today than we expected, he said. I think we were all surprised at how quickly things went on the first day of the sale.
The sales continues until all stock is sold and the discounts will get deeper, he added.
Currently there are still MacBooks, Dell and other notebooks in stock for $1,600 to $2,400 less 20 percent. Theres also a selection of computer monitors, and computer accessories including external hard drives, routers etc.
The store is also selling its fixtures and office furniture and two company vans, including a Mazda Bongo 2008 model and Suzuki 2005 model.
After 12 years in business, the Victoria Street retailer announced this week it is closing its doors.
Computer City director Craig Clark blamed the closure on unprecedented economic conditions in Bermuda, and said nine workers would lose their jobs.
