Does anyone else think that the phrase "unprecedented retailing concept and social mecca" is a euphemism for bankruptcy?

Yes... I reread that a few times trying to figure out what it meant.

Also, a Micro Center opened in Brooklyn on 3rd ave and 31st street.
Anyone been there yet?


Prices don't seem that bad.


I've been a fan of Microcenter for a long time.
They have a quite good selection of DIY stuff (including Beagle boards,
Pi's, and even Xbee kits at near-internet market prices). It's a nice
place, kinda good location (between VZ bridge and Prospect Expy). 
I usually find myself going there to purchase tools or oddities. I am
used to the location in Yonkers, which is also nice, but the BK location
is much bigger! 

honestly, I wish them luck.
