French far-left Parti de Gauche (PG) party's leader Jean-Luc Melenchon (R) gives a speech as he takes part with employees of the Virgin Megastore in a demonstration in front of the shop on the Champs-Elysees avenue, on January 29, 2013 in Paris. Megastore music and book unit direction, which is known in France as a 'culture' retailer, annouced two weeks ago its insolvency. Originally started by Richard Branson, the British billionaire and chairman of the Virgin Group, the Virgin megastores were bought by the French Lagardere group in 2001 before French-American businessman Walter Butler became the majority shareholder. Butler announced on January 20, 2013, its failure to relaunch the stores. AFP PHOTO / LIONEL BONAVENTURE (Photo credit should read LIONEL BONAVENTURE/AFP/Getty Images)
