Virgin is Sorry
November 14, 2006

Last night Steve and I went to Virgin, Marina Mall. I was surprised by how much the place changed. For starters, the panasonic section expanded and now has its own entrance and its own cashier. Now that got me wondering, why the hell is virgin renting out that space? I mean, its not like they got a huge area to be covered and they dont know what to do with it. This virgin is probably the smallest in the world and instead of making use of it, they decide that it will pour in more profit than if they use it efficiently. Moving on to the House/Trance CD section which I could get to blindly and what do I see? "Sorry for the Inconvenience"!!! Apparently, they are redecorating and shifted all the CDs to another area. I go to where they shifted the CDs and I find maximum 20 CDs!! I kept looking around thinking I missed something, but I didnt. Because of renovation issues and customs problems, they have not imported any new CDs during the past few weeks! My CD collection is bigger than the one they got displayed!! All I can say is that Virgin continues to dissapoint me, be it prices, meeting the worldwide known Virgin standards, and not being up-to-date on their products. And I hate where they put the new cashier stand, more wasted space. They gotta shape up, they have a lot to be sorry about!

    Last time I went to Virgin, Friday of last week, they didn't have much of a selection! Apparently the ministry came in and took their products to "check" on them PLUS I also heard that Virgin is having issues getting shipments into Kuwait due to the ministry as well!

    I stopped going to the Virgin in Marina Mall ages ago :( They don't have anything. But, like Stallion said, it's becasue of the ministry that the virgin store in q8 is a big dissapointment
