MUSIC: Times Square's Virgin Megastore Closing

Normally I wouldn't report something like this, but aside from the record store on 14th and Broadway, this is the only place I would buy CDs. Now that we are a mp3-loving community, I guess such stores are becoming extinct.

Now what should replace it? I think Apple would make trillions if they erected a post there. The 59th street location (above) is artistic and everything, but Times Square is like an outdoor shopping mall. With a spot right across from TRL and no other music outlets nearby, it would have a perfect advantage.
