Feature: Dead Record Shops

Perhaps this will come as a surprise to absolutely no-one, but we are fast approaching the death-throes of record retailing in the UK. Of course, we've all been predicting it for years - how online purchasing would lead to the demise of retail - but rather like the possibility of a death in the family we've tended to put it out of our thoughts until it actually happens. Sadly it's about that time - I think I can well and truly declare that the grieving process needs to start, as all around us our loved ones become only memories.
