Good large stores with great variety

Very expensive

Virgin stores are reaally good and useful for music of ALL kinds. The stores also sell video's, DVD's, game consoles and games for PC's and game consoles. They also sell their own makes of mobile phones. The store which has many many branches spread across the whole of our country are all very...

“Brilliant for browsing”

published 08/05/2001

Plenty of stock, great in store radio

Too expensive

Like HMV, there isn't essentially anything wrong with Virgin. I enjoy going there, wandering round and browsing what they have on offer. All the Virgin stores I have been in to date have been very spacious and clean, and it is very relaxing to simply dander around at your leisure. All the stores...

“Virgin mega friendly”

published 06/03/2001

Excellent service

Bit pricey

A large retail chain store for music and video. Also selling computer and console games, they stock a large variety to suit all tastes. Owned by the entrepreneur Richard Branson, this chain of popular store is popping up in many large towns and cities. As a consumer that very rarely ventures into...

“Virgin on the Ridiculous”

published 30/04/2001

Big

Not Clever or Good Value

In the early seventies I used to buy Sounds and New Musical Express to find out the gen on my favourite bands of the time which included Hawkwind and German rock bands such as Amon Duul II, Faust, Neu, Can and Kraftwerk as well as other left field conglomerations such as Gong and the like. Around...

Excellent

friendly atmosphere, great selection

some over-priced goods

A triumph in the retail industry this store is effectively managed and knows just how to supply its customers with affordable records and other assorted merchandise. As a teenager I can not sing the praises of Virgin Records enough, yes it is certainly possible to find CDs at much cheaper prices...

Everything; people will write country music about ...

There are a lot of things that can be said about a store that sells items 'above' the recommended retail price. Many of them being unsuitable for young ears and would probably warrant a washing my mouth out with copious amounts of soap; but for the purposes of this review I shall try to keep...

“Virgin on the best”

published 28/11/2000

Big, nice, cosy and often well laid out.

More costly than the small, local retailers.

Virgin Megastores are, I feel, unquestionably the best store for the average man, woman or teenager who might walk in off the street. Is any one of us really “ average ” though? No, probably not. This does not rule out a visit to Virgin though and therein lies the strength of the Megastores...

“Virgin Megastore”

published 22/07/2001

Good Location

Spending Money

Watford Virgin Megastore Situated within the architectural brilliance of the Harlequin shopping centre, the Virgin megastore stands out as a well known, quality music store amongst Watford shoppers. From the outside this store looks very compact but, upon entering, it becomes clearly apparent how...

Not for me

poor service

Rude managers.

We all know that buying a Christmas present for our parents can be very difficult even without a limited budget. My daughter goes to college and has a small part time job, she is 17. In 2004 she came into my bedroom and heard a rather crusty old tape of music I was listening to.” Mum this is...

“Best of a bad bunch”

published 17/04/2001

RELATIVELY wide choice

Still not good enough

Back in the late 70's and early 80's there were millions (well, a lot anyway) of independent record shops around any major town. I used to live in Stafford and there was Lotus Records, Terry Bloods, and several others, and they all had an amazing array of different kinds of music in them. Loads...

“Virgins”

published 22/12/2000

Biggest selection you'll find

Overpriced imports

When walking in to any Virgin Megastore for the first time, I don't think there's any way in which you won't be blown away by the shear size of it. My (fairly) local store has 2 huge floors. The top floor really is HUGE (shame the text doesn't go bigger). It seriously is probably not far off...

“Virgin on extortion”

published 08/05/2001

Good radio, wide range of stock

Overpriced, staff generally un helpful.

The beatles or the stones? Take that or East 17? Spice girls or All Saints? Now for another music debate...Virgin or HMV? To be honest, i think virgin as a store is vastly overrated. Whilst it does have a very good range in Books, Videos, DVDs, Computer games and CDs, it seems that every item is...

“No Value for money”

published 10/11/2000

Good range of titles

Pricey, long waits

My experience of the Virgin Megastores is that they don't provide very good value for money. I always shop around when buying things and have always found items cheaper elsewhere. On the plus side they do stock a vast range of audio and video products and computer games and you will usually find...

I used to shop at HMV. But then I went to look at Virgin Megastores. They are SO SO much cheaper than HMV, Our Price and Woolworths etc. For Example: I wanted to buy The Royle Family Season 1 video for my dad for christmas. At WHSmiths - They had run out. At Woolworths - £15.99. That's far too...
