Administrator: 'HMV is an iconic retailer'

HMV is an iconic retailer and continues to be a very popular brand, but as we have seen with many high street retailers, the market is changing rapidly and conditions are currently very tough.

Following our appointment, we are working closely with management and staff to stabilise the business in order to continue trading whilst actively seeking a purchaser for the business and assets.

We appreciate the co-operation and support from the staff, customers, suppliers and landlords at what is clearly a difficult time.
