HMV to close 66 stores

Posted at 3:37PM Thursday 07 Feb 2013

Almost 1,000 HMV staff are facing redundancy as administrators for the failed music store chain revealed they will close 66 shops across the country.

The loss-making stores, including all five Edinburgh sites, three in Glasgow and four in London, will close over the next two months and comes as administrators from Deloittes plan to sell the company's flagship Oxford Street store.
