HMV to offer free WiFi in new 'social media cafe' in a bid to stay relevant
HMV mean nothing to anyone. They're a dying supermarket that kids stare at with suspicion. And so, in a bid to get back to being something resembling relevant, they're launching a cafe.
Because young people like sitting still for five minutes don't they?
That's right, HMV are going to have social media cafes so with free WiFi, so people can silently tweet each other without looking up from their gaspingly awful coffee.
A spokesperson for HMV said that the first social media cafe will be in Cambridge. You'll be able to charge your phone up, browse the web and gargle brown, thick liquid. Mike Barry, manager at HMV Cambridge said: "It's great to be re-opening in such a fabulous location and with a store that offers so many exciting new features."
"The whole team here are really looking forward to welcoming back our regular customers as well as new visitors, who we hope will particularly like the expanded technology department and our HMV café with free WiFi."
And free WiFi will be rolled out across all the stores in the UK while they weigh-up how successful the social media cafe is. All the while, HMV are staring at the balance sheet, seeing sales falling.
