It's very sad but it's easy to see that it isn't viable with the town in its current state. Maybe if HMV can stabilise their business in the next couple of years, they may be in a position to expand and come back to the regenerated town centre. Or the whole chain will collapse anyway and we won't be any worse off than anywhere else!

The problem is thats its still to dear even with 25% off a number of things, and even if i see something in here i will go online and it will be much cheaper. This is why HMV is having to close a number of stores because people are just "Adding to cart" and buying this way, its a shame because many of our stores are closing and there will be no high streets or shopping malls again. :(
