HMV already closed all of their shops near me so it feels as though they completely disappeared the first time around. Sad news for those who still had one locally, though; hope you all get to spend your points today. Shopping for anime on the high street is something I only do when overseas these days
It’s really saddening. If HMV and Fopp close I’ll have little reason to visit Central London anymore. Shame as I spent £60 in Fopp yesterday too. HMVPure being down isn’t helpful either. Here’s hoping the websites come back online sooner rather than later.
I only have some steelbook pre-orders open with HMV - so if they do really disappear this time around those will just be moved to different retailers (HMV have exclusive arrangements with Sony for things such as this at the moment).
I've departed on a one-man crusade to try and get HMV to stop using those horrible security tags that ruin boxed sets by the wires that secure them digging into them. Hopefully they'll see reason since they presumably want to sell these products, rather than having them sit on shelves unsold because they've been damaged by their own security devices.
