Virgin offers “To Go” orders at Hollywood Megastore

July 29, 2008 at 8:03 pm (Hollywood Store) (, , , )

Not sure if you’re like me, but at times I loathe parking. It actually keeps me from venturing out to shop — well, okay that’s a bit of an exaggeration. However…we have been brainstorming a fun new way to make our DVDs, Video Games, CDs, books, etc “To Go” and are trying it out at our Hollywood Virgin Megastore. We all know that parking in Hollywood can be trying so now you can just call, email or fax your order into our store. In just a few minutes we will be waiting curbside with your purchases. Not too bad huh? We thought this might come in handy for studio execs or even the ever-busy LA shopper. When you call you just need to have your credit card, pick up time and make/model of your car and a Megastore Shopper will place your order and bring it out to you! To place your order you can:

Email: curbsideservice@virginmega.com
Fax: 323-469-9677
or call: 323-769-8520, ext. 2401

We start the service this week! We are only offering it at the Hollywood and Highland location for now — but try it out!
Cheers,
Dee

NAS MAKES TIME FOR VIRGIN MEGASTORES

July 16, 2008 at 5:17 am (Union Square Megastore) (, , )

Cool event today, I’d thought I’d share with you all. One of Union Square’s all time favorite customer’s, NAS, came to the Virgin Megastore Union Square to release his new CD, “Nas” for a special autograph signing today. Over 600 of his fans packed our store after waiting countless hours outside in line. He spent nearly three hours signing his CDs for the group. Check out the pics below. Great event!

Cheers

PRIDEFEST – HUGE SUCCESS

July 1, 2008 at 6:28 am (Hollywood Store, Times Square Store) (, , )

So from the west coast to the east coast we helped celebrate the annual Pridefest celebrations! Up in San Fran we had a big Ford F250 outfitted with a sound system and fully decorated in Virgin flair. At 10am we hit the parade route driving behind Cyndi Lauper’s convertible on the parade route. The parade was a lot of fun – as our own DJ “The Voice of Virgin” Dave, did an awesome job on the back of the truck, hyping up Cyndi’s new album in between tracks that he played, and talking to the crowd. Our 4 Virgin staffers walking beside the truck also were key – they passed out swag bags and fliers to the parade crowds that screamed the loudest for us. Several times throughout the morning people came up to us or just screamed from the crowd, “We love Virgin Megastore!” The weekend provided many challenges for our Pridefest team – from flight cancellations, run-ins with the cops, taxi drivers who didn’t know their way around the city, and having to drive a Ford F250 in San Francisco with road closures – but most importantly it was a lot of fun for both our staff and the crowds. Below see pictures of Ms. Lauper and crowd, along with our own April Windsor showing off our Virgin Ford F250! Out in NYC it was also a great weekend as our Union Square store held it’s 2nd annual Pride Fest celebration to tie in to the city’s parade and events. We were happy to have Peppermint – Drag Queen of the Year back as our host again this year. See below for some pics of the event!

Cheers,
Dee
