Virgin on the Ridiculous

AdvantagesBig

DisadvantagesNot Clever or Good Value

"...in the above publications for Virgin Mail Order, so it was possible to get decent imported music , cheaply. Branson seemed to have a love of music, and helped the fans get decent new music at reasonable prices. Then came the shops and record label, I can't remember which came first. The record label caused a commotion because the initial adverts carried a photograph of a pregnant naked girl. Also to coincide with the initial releases they said ..." Read review

Not so virginal in the consumer market

Advantagesfriendly atmosphere, great selection

Disadvantagessome over-priced goods

"...not sing the praises of Virgin Records enough, yes it is certainly possible to find CDs at much cheaper prices in smaller and more independent records, this is a dictum which is certainly hard to challenge, however these independent stores do not often have what you are looking for, as opposed to Virgin who will simply search their extensive and expanding database in order to find and obtain the album or single that you are looking for.

Virgin mega friendly

AdvantagesExcellent service

DisadvantagesBit pricey

ZAVVI!! Does that mean 'Insultingly Expensive'?

AdvantagesIt's not called Virgin Megastores anymore.

DisadvantagesEverything; people will write country music about how bad this shop is.

"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 things both clean and objective. -Shop- The first thing I noticed as I entered the store is that it is quite dark and most of its theme is based on black ..."
