    They should concentrate on internet sales so they lose the expense of the stores, this would help them to come out of this ok, yes for now it would lose fair bit of business but it would certainly allow them to continue trading as a company & drop the store numbers down to a minimal in the main shopping areas

    TBH when i they took over virgin megastores i never thought they would last very well. I know nothing of their figures or the takeover cost but it just never seemed right to me.
