Hardly surprising seeing as downloads have the biggest share of the market. Its a bit like being surprised that the twin tub spares dept has closed at Wigfalls.

Sadly for the staff music and film downloads are almost perfect for the net, instant and able to store thousands of music downloads on your device.

They already went bust once before, if that wasn't warning enough then I don't know what is.

The pressures on them have only increased since

Naïve I know, but even though there are certain shops and business's that I rarely used, it was always comforting to know that they were there.

Downloads, streaming services (legal and illegal), piracy have/will all but kill the cd/dvd/blu ray market.

we are moving to generations that may never own any of the above but just use Amazon, Netflix, Spotify etc (other products are available)
