Other responses to ITV News Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg suggest people retain a keen eye on online prices before deciding whether to buy in-store.
Despite HMV's financial woes, a straw poll of Twitter users appears there is still an appetite for a place where customers can physically browse CDs and DVDs.

Like-for-like sales fell 10.2% in the six months to October 27 as its pre-tax loss narrowed to £36.1 million, compared to £50.1 million the previous year.
