My favourite store in Paris

Posted on Updated on

When ever we come to Paris I have to visit one particular store – it’s one we used to have in the UK, but no longer do. It’s also a dying breed of shop in Britain due to our love of Internet shopping.

The store in question? Virgin Megastore.

When I was a student in the 80’s Nottingham had a number of great record shops – Selectadisc was a Mecca for all students. I spent many happy hours each week going through the music racks of albums (remember those?).

Somehow HMV just doesn’t do it for me these days. But the Virgin Megastore in Paris is vast, has a huge library of music in both CD and vinyl and it’s just a great place to be!

They also have live music fairly regularly – something to applaud in any music shop and sadly lacking in the UK.

Next time you are in Paris have a look, you won’t be disappointed!
