Was out today with SWMBO wandering around a town I've not been to for a long time, apart from the sort of changes and new buildings etc that are to be expected, came across an HMV so popped in for a look (would've been rude not too), anyway 15minutes later came out with a big smile and 3 double albums and one single.
The day only got better when SWMBO suggested over lunch that we make this a regular (well monthly) mid week trip. WINNER 😇

HMV, 🥳🥳 (been trying to lose SWMBO for the last 47 years, but suppose I'd be lost without her.....or rich).

The HMV where I live keeps opening & closing and as I have to make a special journey into town I can't be bothered "I hate shopping in town" to find out if it's still open. I only tend to go in when I want something like footwear or clothing (I like to try things on) the last time I went into HMV they had changed the location of the shop and I only found it by chance. It's a pity as I had their loyalty card and they would sometime have some good deals on or money off, I don't even get emails from now like I used to.

Finding this particular HMV gives me another place to hide whilst we "go shopping" there's another branch about 15 miles away but we don't go there so often. 
I'm fortunate to have a great local record shop, they've 2 shops in nearby towns we regularly use, real old fashioned place full of records & cd's even a small selection of used LP's and helpful aren't they just. 
So it's nice to find somewhere different I'll stick with my local bods for the majority of my purchases.

Where I live there is only one record shop that sales new records that's if it's still open. I usually travel about 30 mins to one in Totnes other than that I have three second hand record shops near by, But most of them don't stock what I like, One is good he will try and find a record if you wont.
