HMV backs the British High Street, plans 10 new stores this year

Bricks and mortar record shops are an important part of being a music fan, for some of us anyway. But there's a difference between the neighbourhood shops which feel like part of the community and the big chains which feel like they are just part of the Head Office's strategy. Last time I was in an independent record shop I had a long chat with the owner, heard lots of interesting stories and probably spent more than I should have. Whereas I remember trying to ask a fairly innocent question about a DVD in HMV and being told "I'm not allowed to discuss prices. I could get the sack."
