A full list of 66 HMV stores that are set to close has been released through MCV and the closures will impact around 930 staff.

Nick Edwards from administrators Deloitte commented on the closure: “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.

“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.”

The list covers most areas of the UK but no date has been set for the closures.
