As a former PC Club employee, I'm happy to see this day come.
They were a horrible place to work with apathetic regional management. They had no real business sense for the most part. Ever since Jackson Lan (Founder) died that company had been grossly mismanaged. The reviews posted on [H] were very true to how the systems were sent to stores for sales. I also found the management to be a little intolerant of the Anglo employees, while overlooking all of the Asian under performers. This may have been corrected in the last few years, but it was true back in 2002 - 2003.
I feel sorry for the employees of PC Club and hope they can all find gigs that pay good money and not expect 60+ hours a week.
Unrealistic goals, horrible to get good stock in, and we were always held back from making good deals to resellers.
R.I.P. PC Club. It's about time the dragon boat found it's way back to Taiwan.

I know that, but sometimes it's hard to find something that hasn't been returned before from a shelf full of returned products. Sometimes you have to wonder why there's so many returned items.
I/O software in Flint and there is a place in Lansing on 46.All you people have it good. Up here in Michigan we have NOTHING! (Except for one Fry's over in Detroit? I just saw one the other day, can't remember where I was though.) (And Best Buy/Circuit City don't count!)
Unless it's a check written directly from PC Club/Club IT there should be no problem with it.Hmm, I DID receive my rebate from them last week. Haven't cashed it yet. You guys think I'll actually get any money or is it just a dead check?
I should add that I'm sad to see ClubIT go. They were always one of the first 2 or 3 places I looked to buy stuff. Basically I considered ZZF, Newegg and ClubIT the fist round of stops.
Hopefully places like Jab-tech, Directron and some of the other smaller sites will survive this economy. Jab-Tech is a great place when shopping for a bunch of fans, Heat Sinks and so on. They kill you on shipping with small orders but if you order $200.00 of wires, fans, Heat sinks (whatever), it's only a few bucks more. I suspect directron will do OK, since they're in SW Houston. Fry's isn't far away, but Directron is generally competitive, IMO.
