Artefact

Record Shops of Central Manchester, Number 5: The HMV Shop, Arndale Shopping Centre, Manchester.

Yes. I know it's part of a huge corporate chain, but most of us have made a purchase from either this store or its long lasting predecessor on Market Street.

Mike Says –
Counting this, does that mean there have now been four HMV stores on Market Street? The older one on the Underground Market side which you used to have to access via a steep flight of stairs (late 70s early 80s for me). The Megastore, on three floors, up towards the top, again on the right as you head towards Piccadilly. And the one much further down on the Arndale side, which was originally a multi-media store, but ended up selling everything? I think that one might now be the city shop.
