Tell me it isn't so!

I've been told and then read that by June all of the Virgin Megastores in the USA will be gone. It seems the Real Estate Group that owns/manages them has decided that they can get higher rents from other businesses. How stupid.

This is my favorite store. It is at Downtown Disney and is always busy and has a selection of CDs and DVDs that can't be found anywhere else except perhaps online. It is such fun to ride the escalator to the 2nd floor, to watch the movies on their huge screens with grand sound effects, to have coffee and sit out on the cantilevered balcony and watch the crowds go by. I usually head to the foreign films section up stairs to check to see what French movies are on sale and then down to the CDs.. This trip I found a 3 cd Edith Piaf for just $10.
Then I check all of the sale bins to see what other bargains I can find.

I really love this place and it's right accross from my favorite restaurant at Downtown Disney: Wolfgang Puck's. I stopped and had the Chef's Special Sushi roll when I was there and it was so good. If anyone if friends with Sir Richard Branson, can you ask him to step in and keep this one open for me.. :=]

Oh gosh it's a pity! it is my favourite store as well!
I was wondering about because when Cezar had a business trip to London in the end of last year, he looked for Virgin 'Store and instead of it he found another store.

Hey, Karen, from June, you can come in Paris, Virgin stores (4)are still there. The way you describe the store makes me think they're arranged the same way.
Furthermore, you'll find as many French movies as you want : )
