HMV, the troubled retail group, has shut down its Oxford Street store in London, registered by Guinness as the world’s biggest.

There remains one smaller store down the road.

    Sad news indeed. In the late 70’s I have studied in London and I was there more or less everyday.

    Anyone remember “Sam The Record Man” store in Toronto’ Yonge Street, that was a huge store and had everything one could wish for. It went years ago.

  • Rosana Martins says:

    I’ve always associated my stays in London with visits to the HMV store. I would sped hours every time browsing the CDs and DVDs. How sad! Human contact is becoming a rare thing!
