It will be a shame to see them, but unfortunately they just cant match the compotition.
Their prices are among the highest around. They are second only to Game when it comes to the prices of videogames. but its harder for them to lower the prices on their stock when so much of the money needed to go towards paying the staff and the rent for the stores.
This was the big reason they couldnt compete with online retailers. The likes of amazon dont have to worry to the upkeep of a storefront, so it was easier to knock off a fiver here or there.
The biggest competition though, has to be the supermarkets. They have the ability to lower the cost of DVDs, Games and Music, and probably sell them at a loss at first to get more people in. Its easier for them though, because they can make that money back from the amount of money they get from the produce they sell.
Time to rock n' ruin!
