Is this a trend?

I’m not sure whether this is something particular to the computer store industry or whether I should see this as a trend in all industries. Will storefronts close as business goes to the internet? I don’t think the CompUSA closing is about this. I think it’s about a store that failed to compete within its market. BestBuy and Circuit City simply outflanked it. And the attempt to move into services outsourcing seems to have been unprofiable as well. That business segment is for sale also.
