    I dare say any stores that are losing a lot of cash will be pruned unless they can trim them

    Disappointed that the Fopp store in Bristol is closing.

    Never heard of that. What's a Fopp anyway?

    That is sad news. Fopp was its own thing when it was independent and while Fopp under HMV was sort of HMV lite, they still retained some of the Fopp vibe so Fopp shops going is a loss.

    I see no mention of the Belfast HMV shop closing, cautious smile.

    The vinyl section in my HMV seems to have been on steroids lately and now covers about a fifth of the space. Even better, they've installed waist height racks with a bit of space in them. The old ones were stepped so that the rear (highest) section was pretty much unviewable even for someone 6 foot tall, and the albums were all rammed in so you couldn't browse them without bending them. Several titles at £9.99 now too. Things are looking up

    Vinyl saves HMV! If only they hadnt stocked those pesky cds

    Now all they need to do is convert some space to beard trimming and a delicatessen.

    No, they need to open up a café like they do in Waterstones, where you can read and have a coffee at the same time! There is an acute shortage of coffee shops in the high street these days - we need a few more.

    Either that, or employ staff who know a bit more about the records they sell, apart from the price.
