Been predicted for a while but looks likely tomorrow http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c4096aee-5e82-11e2-a771-00144feab49a.html#axzz2Hz53czjx More imminent store closures and job losses.

You're quite right about your reasoning of a specific voucher being more personal, it also ensures that that is what is bought.

When I was a young 'un, if I was given a book token, I obviously bought a book with it, when other aunties gave me a ten bob note to buy books, I spent it in the sweet shop!

And likewise with adults, a cheque paid into an adult's account can very easily end up paying the gas bill or worse still, paying off the credit card balance of the present you received from the same person!

I don't know what HMV vouchers have to do with our local Cooperative store, unless they use to sell them. But a notice went up in the store yesterday, giving telephone contact details for the redemption of the vouchers.

Just listening to this story on 5Live , they recon its going to happen tonight , store managers being told to discount everything ! If you have any HMV gift vouchers , get to a shop now , if you have any late night shopping centres near you .

HMV has been in trouble for ages.

They make very little selling DVDs & CDs as they're almost always discounted to match online prices.

Recently they seem to be sticking mostly expensive branded headphones, but once every gullible person has bought a pair of them, what do they sell next, it won't be iPods anymore as the traditional iPod customer now usually has an iPhone

We will end up with empty high streets as online shopping absorbs all business . That is until the tipping point is reached , when there are not enough people with jobs to buy anything , economy collapses , government collapses , and we become a third world country !
