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.
Responding to ITV News Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg's question if people still shopped in HMV rather than bought online, people replied:
@itvlaurak Sometimes it's just nice to browse in a real place. Instant gratification (no waiting on the post).
@itvlaurak combination of convenience and price - would rather buy digital copy, but HMV's DVDs are cheaper!
@itvlaurak occasionally when home as i have an old car with a CD player. Nice to have new songs. Otherwise it's all iTunes.
