WH Smith used to have a music and dvd section on the bottom floor. Cant think of anywhere else in town.

 

Supermarkets have taken over the market these days,

Except every supermarket DOES sell CDs and DVDs - Asda, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsburys all do.

 

Why are you claiming they don't?

I can think of 6 record shops in Sheffield:

 

LP - Arundel Street

Music Junkee - Cambridge Street

Vinyl Demand - Charter Square

Record Collector - Broomhill

Tonearm - Walkley

Nichols Building - Shalesmoor

CEX on High Street has some 2nd hand CDs. Some of the charity shops have a good range of music. Oxfam on Glossop Road opposite Swim Inn do as well as BHF at the end of Pinstone Street. Well I say good compared to other charity shops. The St Luke shops have some stuff and have a 3 for 2 offer where you can mix CDs, DVDs and vinyl. Ecclesall Road near Tesco has 6 or 7 charity shops where you can get some good music cheap.

None really "like HMV". But to this list you can add Rare and Racy on Division Street.

 

Apart from HMV and generalists like supermarkets and WH Smiths, the only places selling records/CDs these days are small specialists like the above.

There did. HMV apart, been and gone include Virgin/Zavvi, Our Price, Andy's Records, Fopp/Music Zone among others. It's been a bloodbath, and that's just the chains.
