Disadvantages: New releases are expensive, but this is the same in most places.
I have always had a love for DVDs and am always on the lookout for the best deal! I used to find HMV quite expensive, however, they have slowly dropped their prices and become my favourite entertainment store.
HMV is probably the largest entertainment store at the minute, and it is not surprising at all. They stock everything that you could ever need, including DVDs, games, books and little extras. You will never struggle to find a little treat :)
Most HMV stores have the same basic layout. DVDs tend to be with DVDs and all of the CDs are grouped together. But they are then grouped into categories, for example horror DVDs or rock music. Once you know where different categories are in your local HMV, you will find that you just walk straight over to that section.
Also, at the front of most stores, there are several stands which have the stores best offers. These offers tend to be DVDs from £3 or 2 for £10 and everything in this offer is grouped together. This makes life a lot easier as you don't have to walk around searching for two items in the same offer.
As you walk around most stores, you will find little extras on stands. These include keyrings, badges and gift cards and always seem to catch my eye.
In every HMV store that I have been into, the staff are extremely helpful and will give you advice on different items or help you find something that you are looking for. I have never had any issues with any staff member in their stores and hope that I will continue to receive great customer service from them.
**Prices and Offers**
HMVs prices tend to be very good and most of the time there are lots of different offers on. One of the most popular offers that HMV have is the 2 for £10, where if an item has a 2 for £10 sticker on you can mix and match it.
When items are first released, such as DVDs, the prices can seem quite steep. However, if you shop around this will be that same in most stores as new releases seem to be so overpriced nowdays!
I love HMV! It is definately my favourite entertainment store and I will continue to shop with them until they are no more (which will hopefully be never)!
I always seem to go into the store to buy one thing, and come out with 10 items because they are on offer, but this is the beauty of it!!
HMV comes with high recommendations from me!
