what the fuck is HHGregg??

anyone seen these HHGregg commercials? First of all, I'd never even heard of HHGregg until these new commercials started coming out. I don't even know what kind of store it is. But WHAT IN THE HELL is their mascot supposed to be? A rolled-up flyer? With spikey red hair, and no arms or legs? What is that?! This is the WORST mascot EVER. HHGregg SUCKS.

this is worse than Mike O'Meara's CGI tomato from the Shopper's Food Warehouse commercials.

They are a Best Buy clone.

They use a lot of the old Circuit City stores, and have a limited selection compared to Best Buy. The ones I have been in focus more on appliances than electronics; they have a very limited selection of computers and TVs, yet half the store was refrigerators and washing machines.

I think they're more like a clone of Montgomery Ward's Electric Avenue. And will meet the same fate.

OMG, Mr. Misery.

I’m going through today’s mail and out drops this ad for hhgregg -- Thanksgiving Sale - 20-30% off - Or More! - 7 Days Only! The little worm guy with the floating hands and feet is wearing a Santa Claus hat.

I say to myself, WTF is this. Then, I look up and see your thread.

It’s just like the guy who thought of that famous F. Scott Fitzgerald quote prior to clicking on Washington’s thread. When I saw his post I said, “Welcome to my world."

Around two years ago, I entered this strange world of coincidences. When it first began, there were constant episodes. Everyday, I was involved in a strange coincidence. Slowly, the incidents tapered off to a few per week and now I’m averaging at least one per week.

This counts as two coincidences for today.

It is a coincidence that I read about someone else’s coincidence on the same day and on the same message board that I later have my own coincidence involving you and the hhgregg worm guy.

The amount and nature of my coincidences are not normal.

I need to be studied.

for a realist such as myself, coincidences are life's candy.

I also believe HH Gregg sells mattresses, too. I wonder if we can "deal" with them like at the mattress stores? It's great when the sales guy say that he can give you the set for "X" dollars today. Then, you make your move and get him down another $150 - 200 on the set. Just like dealing in used cars.

I searched and searched for that commercial on Youtube. I guess it's just too obscure. I'd give anything to see it again. And what ever happened to the Shopper's Food Warehouse lady? She was so good.

Too many H's and too many G's.


H is my least favorite letter of the alphabet. It's name does not sound like it should. It should be called "huh" or something.

What about W? If anything, it should be pronounced "Double-V."

Phonetically it should be "wah", I've heard Germans say Volks-VAGEN.

"H" just sounds ugly and makes no sense. AITCH?

No thanks, I like letters like z,j,k,g,a,b,m,n etc....

Of course Amazon will be cheaper. They don't have showrooms to maintain, extra staff to hire to wait on customers. All of those *extras* cost money. The downside is that with Amazon, you don't get to see your product before you buy it - and, you have to wait 2 or 3 days before you receive it.

However, in your shopping travels, you'll probably come across the model you're interested in anyway. You could always carry a print out of the Amazon price and ask the local retailer to match the price. Chances are, they may not want to lose the sale and they could match the price. It never hurts to ask.

I've never stepped foot in Hhgregg. I was thinking it was like Rent A Center, or one of those types of stores where people who dont know how to manage their money go to purchase things. They end up paying payments that add up to twice the retail cost, instead of being smart and saving to purchase the item(s) outright.

Fair Lakes store always seems empty....

"I find it worrisome that the faster hhgregg seems to grow, the worse its cash flow statement becomes. For years, hhgregg was a smart, free-cash-flow-positive operator. Last year, however, as store-opening costs ate up its cash, hhgregg turned free cash flow negative. GAAP profits are all well and good, but before I buy the stock, I'm going to need hhgregg to show me the money."

Oh, and I predict that Best Buy is also going down. They just can't compete with Amazon.
