Just listening to this story on 5Live , they recon its going to happen tonight , store managers being told to discount everything ! If you have any HMV gift vouchers , get to a shop now , if you have any late night shopping centres near you .

HMV has been in trouble for ages.

They make very little selling DVDs & CDs as they're almost always discounted to match online prices.

Recently they seem to be sticking mostly expensive branded headphones, but once every gullible person has bought a pair of them, what do they sell next, it won't be iPods anymore as the traditional iPod customer now usually has an iPhone

We will end up with empty high streets as online shopping absorbs all business . That is until the tipping point is reached , when there are not enough people with jobs to buy anything , economy collapses , government collapses , and we become a third world country !
