The CDs really are dying. After it was previously revealed that the Virgin Megastore at Times Square would be closed down in April, here comes another close down news.
The six-unit Virgin Megastore chain will close two more stores, the Union Square location in New York City at the end of May and the Market St. store in San Francisco at the end of April, sources say. As previously reported, the company announced that its Times Square store will close in April.
In August 2007, the Virgin Entertainment Group North America was acquired by two real estate companies – the Related Cos. and Vornado. Since then, the chain has been reduced from 11 units – with the industry awaiting word of the fate of the three remaining stores in Denver, Los Angeles, and Orlando, Fla.
I personally have a love for the Compact Disc. The charm of buying a CD and then opening the package, putting the disc into a CD player and then going through the inlay while listening to the music is not comparable to any of the excitement while buying a digital copy.
