66 HMV stores face closure - full list here

Is your neighbourhood branch affected?

HMV administrators Deloitte have tagged almost 70 stores for closure, in a bid to secure a future for the collapsed entertainment retailer, which announced that it was unable to honour millions of pounds in debt payments on 15th January. Around 930 staff will be affected - if you're among them, best of luck.

"As part of our ongoing review of HMV's financial position, we have now completed a review of the store portfolio and have identified 66 loss making stores for closure," commented administrator Nick Edwards (via MCV). "This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of securing the business' future as a going concern.
