Wasn't there some kind of political controversy back in the Major days that had something to do with Oddbins.

HMV has been saved!

Though sadly 27 stores are closing including the Oxford St flagship which is particularly annoying.

Trafford Centre branch is closing too. Hardly surprising, given the absolutely insane rent in there.

It's been gooseberry fool for years anyway.

:( They're not closing ours. I guess they must be doing good business ... :fp:

I can't believe the Southend store is staying open.

all the ones near me are going Reading & Uxbridge no more HMV for me. The oracle HMV was always busy the times i went into it considering where it is inside a shopping center which is always busy surprised its going prime location.

Pretty shocked at them closing the Meadowhall store it’s always really busy but I’m guessing it’s due to high rent

Some of the closed HMV stores have been saved and are re-opening, the Bath branch is already open for business once again.
