Comet - unfriendly lacking customer service. I get my applicances from a local shop.
HMV - hard to find anything even if they had it. Old fashioned and booring. Expensive. Internet much better experience.
Blockbuster - what, you mean they are still going! Last used for VHS.
I see this as just ridding the high street of dead wood.
