So i worked for HMV in Hemel for 7 years before I decided to quit last july and do other things with my life. Unfortunatly the store was in the second bunch for the chop and closed its doors for the last time yesterday. I feel sorry for my ex work mates who lost their jobs cause they were a great bunch of people. I also cursed the head office dinosaurs that made terrible decisions which is why they got in this state in the first place (that and a very poor percentage of the online market) I remember the old days of vinyl and the magic of going to Oxford circus and looking at the dnb section. Upon hearing the news that the store was closing down i had a sobering though. When was the last time I actually went in and bought a cd? or dvd?. I mean i got games and shit but that was quite few and far between. Ive come to realise that I was just as much a part of the problem as head office. I dont need a cd? I listen on youtube!! I lost my mates their jobs and single handedly send the company into liquidation............. lol Life goes on..
