Zavvi (formerly Virgin Megastore)It is indeed a Mega Store, and represents a whole spectrum of musical and film genres accordingly. Their DVD and Video floor has a good selection of films, and does not just concentrate on the top-ten mainstream with a decent array of independent and foreign works on offer. Their exclusive in-store shows by pop bands draw hoards of screaming fans, which could be considered an asset, unless you are a mature jazz enthusiast hoping to make a quick purchase without too much hassle.
