Found this online:

Through next month, Trans World will be grand-opening six new super F.Y.E. storefronts inside old Media Play outlets, which were closed by Musicland late last year. Four of the rebranded sites are in Utah and two are located in New York, and interiors and exteriors have all been renovated. Super F.Y.E. stores average 24,000 square feet and carry expanded product selection.

So it looks like "Media Play" is coming back somewhat. The article said the stores will still have books, but not as many. (Not suprised as FYE, and the old Musicland, don't/didn't know much about books anyway)

FYE is also expanding! the Suncoast brand, while slowly fading out the Sam Goodby brand.

i don't know waht the south hills one will become but I am assuming it will be torn down as I think (this is my speculation) they will tear some of the parts of the mall down or it will be sublet to other places.

The Middletown Media Play was in the space that was once an Ames. I don't know exactly when it opened and closed but it wasn't open for very long.  I think it opened in 1989 or 1990 and was closed before 1994.

The Media Play in the Taylor Retail Center on Eureka Road in Taylor, Michigan has been subdivided into three new spaces. Lumber Liquidators has officially opened their newest location in one of these spaces.


http://www.thenewsherald.com/articles/2014/08/27/news/doc53fcc93303e2c885584901.txt

The article also mentions that the other two spaces will soon be filled by Party City (which will be relocating from their current location next to the Kohl's in another shopping center next to Southland Center) and an indoor trampoline park called Sky Zone.

This, plus the relocation of an existing Big Lots elsewhere in Taylor into the former Circuit City and the opening of Panera Bread in the long-vacant Rio Bravo (both in the same center), has played a role in the rejuvenation of the previously half-dead Taylor Retail Center.

Here is my main memory of Media Play, I was living in New Britain at the time, so I probably went to a nearby location (Southington maybe, I honestly can't remember), anyway, I liked the store, it was there where I purchased an IRON GIANT VHS, with the little figure inside and a giant plush of SHREK, I was probably seven at the time, the people were nice, and the store was set up better (with better prices) than most of today's FYE stores. Sadly, I think in the days of Netflix and Amazon, these stores won't hold on for much longer. I miss Media Play, was sad to see them go. Oh the feels are coming on strong right now.  Cry

Probably Newington right off The Turnpike in the Plaza with Shaw's. These days Shaw's is Stop & Shop. Media Play is now Bob's Clothing & Footwear. Southington did not have one.
