HMV store closures: The full list

Administrator could still make last minute decision to save some outlets

A list of the HMV stores facing closure as part of the administration process being handled by Deloitte has been published.


Deloitte's Nick Edwards has confirmed a total of 66 stores will be closed.

"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. This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of securing the business' future as a going concern," he said.

"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."

A source close to the matter has told CVG that although the stores listed below are subject to closure, these are not all guaranteed as the administrator may take the last minute view that a particular stores could reverse its fortunes.
