There'll be no shops left before long...

If HMV goes from the high street then that'll be a truely sad day. No more will I be able to walk into a shop and actually buy a cd... Sad

I know. I like CD shopping. Looking for bargains. It's fun!

this is very very sad..

We lost most of our stores a few years ago and it is really no fun. I used to love diging through the bins and running into things I had either forgotten or had never seen. Like a treasure hunt.

I really dont like the direction all of our countries seem to be going. We need to have these shops and not just internet

I honestly don't believe the industry will allow there to be no major retailer on the high streets and someone will step in to save them. If not it could be a blessing in disguise and lead to the rise of independent record shops. I always look for the indie places when I'm somewhere new.

While there does seem to be a rescue bid on the table, I honestly see a time when HMV will go from the high street.

All this downloading and digital crap has killed the physical product. When that day comes, if it does, then I'll be gutted. While I don't have the same attachment to CD's as I did to vinyl I still love having something tangible in my grubby paws.

I like looking at the cover, reading the lyrics (if they are inc) and whatever other text is there. I really don't understand where the fun is is clicking a few buttons and downloading a tune? Some of my fondest memories are waiting for release day of the album, heading to the record store, finding that copy and lovingly looking and holding it. Taking it home, carefully opening the shrink wrap (and I've said before, if it was an import sniffing it!!! That smell was lush!) and putting it onto the turntable.

Those simple fun things are lost to todays generation.

Fools...

Or maybe I'm just too old to move with times?
