Virgin Megastore will close its stores around the nation by this summer, including one at Downtown Disney West Side. The company had previously announced plans to close a store in San Francisco and two in New York City. A company spokeswoman confirmed Monday that all six, including stores in Denver and Hollywood, Calif., will close.
This sucks. Sure, you’d never buy an overpriced CD there, but Virgin was more than that. A place for when Tuesday’s new DVD release just couldn’t wait – and Monday midnight was the only option. A place where I watched Duran Duran perform. Where I got to come face to face with Tim Burton. Where Micheal Jackson smeared my hand. Circuit City and KB were upsetting, but losing Virgin, that makes me sad.
