Circuit City, the defunct electronics chain everyone misses, is making a comeback.

The big-box store filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and closed all of its stores a year later, but thanks to retail veterans Ronny Shmoel and Albert Liniado, the chain is coming back from the dead in the coming months, according to a report from Twice Magazine.

The plan is for Circuit City to have a massive online presence, like that of a successful electronic chain such as Best Buy, but have drastically different physical stores from its heydays in the 1990s. It has to be retail for today’s date.”
