One of the great things I love about these big stores is that they have great sales and you can walk around forever looking at interesting new things and see items you wouldn't see other places. Love it.

Pros: They Have Everything!

Cons: Nada

I felt it was necessary to post my utter DISGUST with the so-called management staff at the Times Square store. Knowing well in advance that an event such as this was to take place, the preparation for the release of their new album at midnight could have been an incredible opportunity for fans to not only meet them but purchase their new cd which would have generated HUGE profits for the store. Instead, fans waited for 5+ hours only to be told the event was cancelled due to utter chaos. I blame the staff at the store for not setting up proper security and assuring the safety of the public!! My daughter's dream, as are many girls, is to meet them. Rather than have that happen she nearly got crushed by obnoxious and unrelenting "fans" while your so-called "management" and "security" did NOTHING to control the situation! I hope you are satisfied with disappointing thousands of loyal fans who waited patiently only to be SHOVED aside by those forcing their way through the barricades and ruining it for everyone. Congratulations on a job well-done alienating fans and potential clients!

I've been to the Virgin Megastore a few times and I love it. It's three floors, and it's organized great. The staff is knowledgable and there is a DJ booth on the top floor who plays awesome music. It is definitely something to see.

Pros: Well Organized, Price, Live DJ

Cons: In A Tourist Area, Parking, Crowded

This place has it all: music, movies, books, the set. The selection is great, and there are places where you can sit down and relax. The atmosphere is comfortable and warm, and there's always some decent music floating around each floor. Nearly every type of music immaginable can be found here. The place is well-organized and easily navigated, and customer service is prompt. While not as cheap as some places online, most of the prices are reasonable. A must-visit for New York tourists.

This is a huge store with so much to look through. And that's pretty much what you want to do - the prices aren't good (they are for tourists who consider buying a movie there a souvenir), but it is a fun experience to look at all the popular CDs, DVDs and books available. There is even a movie theater in the basement. It used to be a discount theater but now it is a super expensive Loews - beware.

well you can find basically anything here. they'll have all of the new stuff and all of the old stuff. however, they are expensive. you're in new york with tons of great record stores. so if you can go somewhere else go, it's cheaper. but if you need to go somewhere convenient to quickly pick up something that just came out then go here.

Well, if anything this is just a huge tourist attraction in the middle of Time Square. But the fact of the matter is it's a great store with a huge selection of music and movies. If you're looking for something, you'll most likely find it. Though, make sure money is of no object because import cd's can go past $30 and dvd's are usually priced around 15 over the norm at best buy. The service.. in lack of other words.. sucks. You could be roaming around back and forth for an hour and no one will come over to help you. And if you're lucky enough to get someone to help you, there's a 90% chance they haven't heard of the band you're looking for or they just don't know where anything is. The t-shirts and other merchandise are all cool, but really pricey. The Loews in the basement used to be less than 6 dollars because they played older movies, but now it's back up to new movies at $10.50. The bookstore has a really small selection of books that, as of yet, I still don't see a trend - I think they just pick the most popular names of any genre and sell those. The cafe is good, but you might as well go around Times Square to have a coffee break. All around, lots to see and lots to do in this huge store.

For a wonderful selection of all types of music genres - this is the place to head. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable, which really helps in your search. If you know what you want - they will help you find it. If you are in the mood to try some new music and artists, they will offer alot of suggestions after asking just a few questions

It seems that these days, Virgin owns everything from bottled water to airlines, clothes, entertainment and communications. I have to say - all are high quality, but you pay for it. The selection in this store is HUGE when it comes to music, and there are smaller rooms that house the movies and books. I am not kidding, there are four floors to this lil' diddy and there is even a movie theatre and a cafe in house. It's really amazing, a true sight to be seen.

Virgin Records does live up to its name of a mega-store. This is the place to check out if you are thinking of buying a cd and are not sure. You can sample the cd before you decide to buy it. The place is very busy so come prepared to wait and don't think it will be a quick stop.

This mega-store is located in Times Square. It is a very big store and it stays open pretty late. They have an enormous selection of CD's, and you can listen to the Cd's to preview them and see if you like them. I can't really comment speak to highly of the customer service, however...no one asked me if I needed any help the entire time I was there, and I was wandering around for a while trying to find what I needed. I had to go and search for an employee to help me. i did end up buying a CD from here, but CD prices are ridiculous these days.

Virgin should be stopped from taking over the world. I do not recommend buying music or anything else here. CDs are more expensive here than pretty much anywhere else. If you have a lot of time to kill, it is fun to look at all the trendy books downstairs, or ride the escalators up and down, but I don't recommend going to movies here, either-- we live in New York, we don't need to see our movies in malls.

Virgin has really good prices and a huge variety of CD's. Their selection is great for CD's. I have been able to find stuff there that I can't find elsewhere. Definitely shopping here from now on instead of Tower Records. they also have a great online store.

This store is huge. Not all of the prices are great, like CDs that cost 18 dollars, but some are a good deal and they are always having promotions like their 10 dollar sales. They have DVDs and other stuff like books and clothing as well as CDs. The listening stations are often crowded and hard to get to use, but they are a great way to take time out of a busy day and catch up on some new music by great artists in many genres.

I love techno and other music that isn't necessarily on mainstream channels and I love that they are at Virgin. In addition, you can listen to so many things that you have never heard of. There's a bookstore and you can purchase DVDs as well. This is a great place to pass the time or to find volumes of music that you have never seen before.

PROS: A lot to listen and see
CONS: Times Square location could be crowded tru Union Square

If Virgin doesn't have it it probably doesn't exist. The variety is astounding. If you're a dance music collector like I am you will rejoice in the fact that they still sell records. Records?! Unbelievable. A great place.

So many CD's so little time. OK, so the place is packed, but its very convenient and they really do have a wide variety of recordings.

I like the world music section. I'll always find something worth listening to when I give myself time to hunt. The staff isn't very helpful when it comes to Classical or World Music, but I really didn't expect too much.

This is the ultimate megastore. It has just a little bit of everything when it comes to music. What I like most is their variety of imports. Overall, it is safe to say that this store just might have what you are searching for. I only wished it was not in the always busy Times Square district.

I've spent way, way too much money here. not b/c the prices are high, but more so b/c of the fact that everytime I wander in here I wind up walking out with at least 1 or 2 CD's/DVDs. they have good selection, all the new releases, tons of listening booths, a cafe downstairs, along wth a magazine section. it's customers like me that make Virgin CEO Richard Branson the rich man that he is today
