Hard to have sympathy for them when they used to charge me 18 quid for an imported rap CD in the early 90s.

Exactly this. And they stopped selling new vinyl.

People are saying similar things about your profession mate. I know what you mean and I haven't shopped there for years but there's 2,200 jobs at risk and that's sad I think

True, but people have always had alternatives to my profession: Minicabs, Buses, Trains etc..

Before the internet, we were at the mercy of Tower Records and HMV if you wanted imported CDs. There was no alternative.

They were charging 25 euros for new release dvds back in the early 2000s.
