ps I do feel sorry for whomever had the job of sticking all those 'blue cross' stickers on EVERYthing in HMV recently. Sheesh!


When I worked there this was the worst bit (see earlier post). You could 'oversticker' if the price was going down, but had to remove the old sticker if something was going up. Prices and offers used to change so often you were forever sticking and peeling, peeling and sticking, sticking and peeling... Then there were the 3for2s etc....


I remember all that from Our Price. At the Oxford Street shop there was a basement where all the stickering went on. This basement was stuffed full of aisle after aisle of vinyl - returns, excess stock, gawd knows - and was also equipped with a turntable. The stickering was a highly sought after occupation as you could browse this treasure trove & listen while peeling and stickerizing.
