Circuit City is adding many other experiential features in order to enhance the user experience for its customers. The electronics store, which has been out of business for almost a decade, will come back online and launch "innovative retail stores", according to a press release on the company's website. Circuit City has also tabbed Skinny IT to offer home installations for its customers.

He is joined in the re-opening by a new management team "with experience across top-tier leadership companies", the company said.

Under new ownership, Circuit City has been making plans to open smaller stores in the wake of filing for bankruptcy in 2008. However, the company still went under as online sales weren't enough to keep it afloat, shutting down in 2012.
