    the one by my house closed up shop at the beginning of the year. I rarely bought things from there...only when they had sales. I remember way back when i was ayoung dumb kid, i would get my paycheck, take it to the bank, then go to Virgin and drop $200+ on CDs. [​IMG]
    $20 CD pricetags FTL[​IMG]

    You guys near the ones that are about to now close should only go during the last 2-3 weeks. They mark the prices up to suggested retail, then discount fromthere. IF you buy now, youre gonna end up spending more than the things cost before the liquidation sale

    Everyting will eventually go out of business, the only thing that will last is strip clubs, liquor stores and the casinos.

    Word. There used to be one around my way years ago before they closed...I remember seeing CD's being on sale for $18.99 or so, when storeslike Target got them for $9.99, almost half the cost.

    Im thinking the same thing, I can go on Itunes now and buy the whole album. Plus with auxiliary adapters for your vehicle, you can just plug inyour Ipod and your good.
