In the desperate dying days of the record shop you would think you need all the help you could get but HMV shave shot themselves in the foot with a new dress code that tells staff they must hide long hair and tattoos. I guess the person below is allowed to have long hair because she’s a woman! but if it’s a bloke then he can’t…confusing.
It’s a pretty laughable situation, it must be about 40 years since anyone cared about long hair and tattoos are so common place now that not having them is far more freakish.
It seems like HMV have a problem with the more metal edged end of alternative music so that makes them similar to the mainstream media, radio and TV but it’s going to alienate a whole host of their last remaining customers and make them a real laughing stock.
