HMV open tech shop
If no-one is buying records, then the best way to make money is by selling the technology needed to play music on, right? Well, that's what HMV are clearly doing as they try and stay afloat.
With that, they've opened their first dedicated technology store.
The shop, located in London's One New Chage shopping centre is called the HMV Techshop. It's going to stock iPads, iPods, tablet and netbook PCs, speakers and headphones as well as a small selection of games, DVDs, Blu-rays and other words that are excellent for articles wishing to capitalise on SEO.
HMV says that this could well be the first of many of its kind.
"HMV's remit has always been to give its customers the widest-possible access to music, film and games, however they want to discover and enjoy them,” HMV’s head of technology Ewan Pinder stated. “So our move into personal technology products, including through this new-style store, is actually a very natural next step for us that supports our continuing transformation into a broad-based entertainment brand.
“Headphones, in particular, are really taking off in a big way, and are set to be among the 'must-have' gift items this Christmas."
Internet, it is over to you to beat them on price.
