    Default Virgin Megastore Sunset Closing

    I actually enjoy visiting this place. The movies, books, cds, games, it's just fun browsing.

    The last day is January 31st, 2008.

    They claim they are going to have a huge sale.

    Here is the link to article.

    Huge sale = the best merchandise gets shipped off to their other stores and the leftover crap is 20% off

    The article claims 50% off closing sale. I doubt it's that good.

    Wait why are they closing?

    Edit: Nevermind I read the article. I like going in there whenever I'm in Hollywood. Damn it.

    It was awesome when Tower Records closed. Everything was at least 50% off, and at the closing point of the day, they locked their doors and announced everything was 10 cents....

    tower records here in costa mesa got progressively cheaper the closer to the closing date it became. started off at 20% off and by the end was at least 75% off.

    It was never awesome when Tower Records stores closed.


    Edit: And it's too bad another record store is closing.

    what do you expect when cd's cost $18. sure it was a cool store, but there is no way in hell i would pay that much for a cd just because i enjoyed the atmosphere.

    Someone who transferred from Sunset to Hollywood and Highland says this is right on the money.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    When Tower got to the last day all I could find was hundreds of "Held Up" soundtracks among other bad movies and the complete Tuck and Patti library.

    It was dismal at the end.

    The sad part was there was a tip jar at the front counter at the tower that said, "our Christmas bonus" and there was only like 3 bucks in it.

    I put money in..

    when they closed the virgin store in Miami it was at least 50% off everything. there was crap at the end, but quality stuff the first few days. the best deals are the dvds.

    Amoeba should have a picture of a giant Amoeba on the side of their building engulfing all the other record stores.

    Hollywood and Highland store sucks. It is like a third the size of the Sunset store.

    Amoeba is better but competition is healthy. It leads to various companies seeking improvements or closing due to failing to adapt to the changing times. That is why Levitz Furniture is going out of business, all of thier stores looked like they were stuck in the 1970s.

    But it is sad seeing these the Tower & Virgin record stores closing all over. Sad...and old...because I remember a day when you could have never imagined this.
