The Virgin Megastore will clear out of their Hollywood space by mid-June, and the sales have already begun. According to Citysearch LA's Twitter, everything is now between 10% and 30% off. The LAT music blog Pop and Hiss elaborates:
A weekend visit revealed the store to still be fully stocked, and as of Sunday night one would hardly know the store was on its last legs. April's music and DVD releases were on wide display, and most CDs and DVDs were discounted 20%. Those looking for video game bargains may have to hold out a bit, as discounts in the electronic department were largely at 10%.Given the way Virgin tends to run constant sales, a CD or DVD priced at 20% off might not actually be a bargain, but we suspect discounts will deepen as the closing date approaches.
