If 'they' are appointed then... that is not (normally) good news. Smile

Interesting - I knew my local branch was closing in February when their lease was up but with a view to reopening in a different location later in the year. Looks like that won't be happening now......

Bloody hell, Andys records, Virgin Records, now HMV. Now the only place left to buy a cd in reality is Tescos Sad

Not unsurprising news, the music and dvd world has changed so much HMV were virtually certain to be a casualty, still I feel for the staff more than customers moaning about some vouchers they didn' even pay for themselves.

Thankfully Sheffield has Record Collector and Rare & Racy, both independent who were around "when I were a lad" and appear to be outliving them all!
Also check out who's in charge at HMV

He said Mr Moore, who has been credited with a raft of improvements at Jessops,"has the right skills and experience to lead HMV in the coming years".

Mr Fox (outgoing HMV boss) said (Aug 2012): "I am proud to be leaving HMV with a profitable future secured. The appointment of Trevor Moore means that I will be leaving the company in safe hands."

Might this be anything like a Midas touch?
