Photobucket Oh, wow you haven’t lived until you’ve seen the Circuit City webpage from 1996.

Here is a screen cap in case that archive.org page doens’t work, which it doesn’t from time to time:

You guize, the store locator is totally done in Microsoft FrontPage. Now, FrontPage is fine for a personal webpage, or your Daily Show fan page, but for a company? Even in 1996? The generic “store locator” graphic is totally made in mid 1990’s colors.

I also like that the site has the new feature of sending things to Mexico.
