Report: Virgin Megastore in Times Square, NYC to close down for good…

Billboard reports that the “Virgin Megastore” in Times Square, New York City is closing down this coming April. The “Virgin Megastore” is a huge store that goes three floors down, they have escalators and everything. It sells everything in the entertainment biz: music, movies, video games, etc.

The New Yorker’s who live in that great city may now have to shop for music at the Union Square store. The decision for closing the “Virgin Megastore” in New York had something to do with the real estate, and the value connected to the location.

Honestly, I must say…..good riddance. When I was just in New York City at Times Square earlier this year, I shopped at that “Virgin Megastore” in Times Square, and to be honest, I hated the store. It’s too huge. It took me two escalators down to get to the DVD section and took me a while to go back up and out of the store with the huge crowd of people in there.

Times Square in New York has a lot of cool stores to shop at, but the “Virgin Megastore” isn’t one of them.
