  Douglas Development Partnership are expanding.

Given that their mates, the Chamber of Commerce have been gifted £200k of taxpayer's best by Govt according to the Indy, it wouldn't be surprising.

Record buying options have improved immensely on the Island since they left and look set to improve further. 

So you're saying that having another shop selling records would be damaging the availability of records? I'm confused.

Well, I'm suggesting having THAT shop selling records damages the quality of the record buying experience. history suggests that. 

In the 80's,  and early 90's we had Shocks, the Music Box and Coburns tried their hand at it, plus Woolies. Shocks, in particular, was great for record buyers because you could order the record you wanted and it would be there in a week or so. So you had a broad choice. 

Then Harrison Musique open and became HMV. The others gradually shut or stopped selling records. Then HMV stopped selling records and only selling CDs. The ordering process made it impossible to get anything HMV didn't have in the Island. Then they reduced the number of cds they'd sell in favour of boring film rubbish and would take anything interesting from the shop every Xmas to make room for customers who only shopped once a year looking for Daniel O'Donnell sings Jingle Bells. 

Then HMV decided they were backing the vinyl revival and half-heartedly stocked a few reissues. But you still had to use mail order for anything out of the ordinary. 

Now HMV have gone and we are seeing the first tentative signs of recovery locally. HMV will crush that and we'll end up with the same old disinterested service they've always provided.
