Inflexible high street retailers lose sales due to rigid trading hours

HMV says NO ENTRY; image thanks to zappowbang via FlickrIn the past two weeks I have twice been prevented from entering two different HMV stores on the high street. And not because I’m a known kleptomaniac, but because of the retailer’s lack of flexibility.

On both occasions I rocked up about five minutes before the store was due to close, so I knew I was pushing it. But I also knew exactly what I wanted, and I could see dozens of people milling about inside. 

Despite this, the security guards on the door wouldn’t let me in. Rules is rules!
