ProLarge range

HMV has always been my favourite music shop. If it’s available, HMV should have it, be it CD, video or whatever. If they don’t have it in stock they can order it for you and hold it over until you come in and pick it up. The HMV local to me (Belfast) is divided up into three levels...

“Increasing Shop Prices”

published 19/03/2001

ProGood range of albums

ContraToo expensive

Having been mad on music for 10 years, I have been a constant CD buyer throughout each of those years. It’s best not to count up the money I must have spent on albums but just consider the excellent CD collection I now have. The majority of this money has gone to HMV so I can safely say I...

UPDATED 30/6/01 I just wanted to add an extra star for the store purely due to the fantastic deals I've just enjoyed in their summer sale. I picked up 3 jazz CDs for £5 each, saving a total of £12 on retail prices. Thanks HMV! HMV is a nationwide chain for music and video. My local HMVs are in...

“Great service”

published 08/12/2000

ProThe great service I had once.

ContraPerhaps I haven't found out yet.

I seldom buy CDs or videos from any shops. There was once HMV had a great offer to most of the videos and CDs. I bought several CDs and videos from HMV during the offer period. When I brought back home, the CDs I bought which I thought fantastic and nice turned out to be not my types and...

Having recently accompanied my brother on a trip to London I visited the simply huge HMV store near Picadilly circus. I actually live in Swindon and thought our store was big but this one took the biscuit. Spread over 4 floors it was a massive expanse of every album you could ever want. Amazingly...

“High street Music and Video”

published 30/06/2003

ProGood sales, exchange policy, playlist

ContraQuite expensive

For years there wasn’t an HMV in Colchester, giving Virgin Megastore a near-monopoly in CD sales (despite the incredibly cool independent Time Records – recently closed – and WHSmiths selling pop singles to kids along with pick n mix). It was only moving to Oxford that gave me a real taste of HMV...

This is a response to ImogenW's Room 101 challenge. It could have been Our Price, but I've done one on them, it could have been Virgin but their turn will come, it could have been V-Shops but I've never used one (and probably never will , 2 CDs for £25 or £14 each who are they kidding?). HMV...

ContraSome CD's Are Very Pricy

Well what can you say about HMV probebly the biggest music store in the UK well most people would say very expensive but have a massive selection. True to a certain extent they do indeed have a massive selection ranging from hippy classics to hip hop, rock, pop etc. But are they really a rip-off...

HMV are of course a long established High Street music retailer with superstores in virtually most major towns/cities. Needless to say CDs in the UK are phenomenally overpriced wherever you buy them unless you have a lucky find in a sale or a bargain basement. HMV are no exception here, but, in...

“The end is nigh?”

published 22/01/2011

ProMost things you need are there

ContraGoing under

So HMV is to close 60 stores, two of them from their sister book store chain Waterston's, as they issue a profit warning for a dip in profits of around 15% on last years Christmas period, resulting in a big hit on their share price. It's not quite a Zavvi situation yet with more stores closures...

“High Money Value at times”

published 05/10/2001

Prowell laid out store, great sales, good selection

Contrapricey on some items, no listening bays

A regular trip into the city always involves me visiting the same old shops. You see I'm not much of a shopaholic and only buy things in the shops when I need to just on the off chance. HMV is always on the list of shops I visit and browse but very rarely buy from in a regular way. But why do I...

“HMV is the best for me.”

ProSee text.

ContraSee text.

I would just like to write a review of HMV, a shop that I used today but in my option is probably one of the better shops to use for entertainment style products. As it is coming up to my dad's birhday, I asked him what he wanted - hoping that it was cheap or not too bad on the old pocket. He...
