I know people can charge what they want for a given item, but the prices people quote from their visits to an HMV store seem completely preposterous and more fool anyone who pays well over the odds.
There are people who will shell out over the odds to have something there and then. There are of course people with more money than sense too. Like I said before, I think it's detrimental in the long run because a lot of people will think they're taking the mickey and not buy full price back catalogue products from them at all.

Apparently music is a small part of their business now - DVD is the driving force and the reason why music sections have shrunk in the stores.
