A Blow for Consumer Choice

My favourite music shop, Fopp, has been put into administration and all their shops closed. I like Fopp because they always had good albums for £5 each and sold those handy twin packs for £6. One can occasionally find a great bargain in HMV or Virgin, but usually their ‘sales’ are full of albums priced at about £7 and more.

Having said that, I did pick up Bruce Springsteen’s 30th anniversery special edition of Born to Run for £13.50 from HMV when I was in town on Thursday. It was a similar price from Fopp’s website (plus postage) or £27 from HMV, so I was delighted when I saw it.
