    So an empty store on the high street is good for everyone? You my friend, are an idiot.

    Really? I've found Duty Free shopping has become a bit of a con over the last few years. No way it beats online.

    Don't worry. It won't be empty for long - Poundland's waiting...

    Soon every store on the high street will be empty.

    Good. The sooner the high street goes the sooner it can be turned into housing.

    Yeah brilliant, then the pubs will go, oh and the banks, and the coffee shops. How exciting, just towns full of housing estates.

    Wow there really all so many simple people on here.

    Can't say I'd be gutted if coffee shops go tbh.

    Also revan seems to think there's only one business model on the high street.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    The stock either gets sent back to distributors or is sold to other retailers.

    I'm sure the only reason Pepsipop didn't use the stores was the thousands upon thousands of shoppers blocking his way to the high street, which let's face it has been doing brilliantly with these shops charging twice the price of the Internet. Keep them all open I say!

    I'd rather see the pubs go before coffee shops tbh.

    I'll miss HMV. Where else am I going to head for a quick browse when my missus is trying to drag me around New Look? People are missing the bigger implications here.

    there prices aren't...oh I can't be bothered, waste of time when people say he.
    The high street is important, it effects countless other economic things but my time seems to be wasted attempting to explain.

    I went into Brent Cross recently to buy a present for my brother, and the big HMV was gone. Not only that, but there was literally nowhere you could buy CDs or DVDs in the whole shopping centre apart from an extremely small selection in Smiths.

    The age of physical entertainment media is truly over. These places are all fucked.

    First they came for the Woolworths,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn'ta toddler, or have an obsession for buying tat.

    Then they came for the MFI,
    and I didn't speak out because I preferred furniture that wasn't made of cardboard.

    Then they came for the HMV,
    and I didn't speak out because I stole all my music and films online innit.

    Then they came for pubs and coffee shops,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.

    They've closed the loopholes that companies like Play have been using - so the Internets in general may be a smidge less aggressive than before. HMV are still fucked, overpriced bunch o' cunts. Mainly 'cos their core market has fucked off to Spotify / iTunes / Netflix. Logically they would've launched their own version years ago but the best they came up with was a failed attempt at a social network.

    Still... the high street will either die or have to reduce rent+rates to stop making it so hard to run a high street business.

    Or turn to Primark + Poundlands. Clothing is still better done retail than online.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    @Pepsipop

    There prices were shocking I mean 20/25 for a bluray that I could get for 14 in a supermarket? Yes, the high street is important but the financial climate has rooted out all the crap on the high street that just isn't good enough and hasn't been even before everything went tits up.

    This. I can understand browsing and trying out clothes, but it's argubly better to "browse" for music online as you can actually listen to tracks before hand, check out gig dates etc etc

    I agree some of their prices were bad. Generally was worse when you wanted say an older album. Might be 10-12 quid where was 6 on amazon. Found new releases competitive. They also always had sales, 2 for 10 etc.
    Shops will never compete with Amazon, the logistics don't fit.
