Which retailers made Consumer Reports' 'Naughty & Nice' list?
Mon Nov 19, 2012
I'm pretty sure that when CompUSA went bankrupt Tiger Direct bought the name. So you have two entries here from the same people, and considering TD's longtime track record it's no surprise they still tend to be a bit "creative" in customer service.

Fri Jul 6, 2012
Their problem is like many of today's companies - they are being run by business school graduates who are putting theory into action. Many years back, BB was a legitimate place to buy technology.
