I'll be sad to see it go, frankly. But not too sad.

It was nice having a shop with a world cinema section in the middle of town, even if it was a bit scant. I'll miss that, but with each passing year HMV looked like it was trying to please everyone and ultimately pleasing no-one.

Given that Cinema and Gaming (presumably) seem to be in pretty good fettle at the moment, I imagine the decrepit state of the music industry is the biggest factor. But then music in general has become highly atomised and demograph-specific, with nothing like the mainstream standing it used to have.
