I helped open up and worked at a Computer City in Freehold for a brief time
in the mid-90s. It was one of many Tandy offshoots, somewhat similar to
CompUSA. After I left, the chain was bought out by CompUSA, which is what
took that location's place. Obviously, CompUSA went under not too long
after the acquisition.
In Computer City's case, they were pretty good about training, and
especially letting vendors come and demonstrate the products. Not everyone
was cut out for or especially interested in learning more about the subject
matter, though, which I'm sure applied to CompUSA and no doubt applies to
most big box retailers.
