These are the 66 HMV stores set to close following administration

Retail, Tech Digest news

hmv-funny.jpgThe full list of HMV stores set for closure has been published by the retail chain’s administrators Deloitte.

Despite restructuring group Hilco buying HMV’s debt last month, 66 stores up and down the UK are still set to close.

“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.” Deloitte’s Nick Edwards.

“This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of securing the business’ future as a going concern.

“We continue to receive strong support from staff and are extremely grateful to them for their commitment during an understandably difficult period. All other key stakeholders remain very supportive and I continue to be hopeful of securing a future for the restructured business.”

Though the list below is unlikely to expand, it’s still possible that the administrator may make last minute decisions to keep some of these stores open, should they prove potentially profitable once more:
