HMV close city store

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

RE­TAILER HMV is to close its store in Ban­gor later this month.

The shop on the High Street had es­caped clo­sure back in 2013 when the firm went into ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Back then ad­min­is­tra­tors closed around 60 out­lets across the UK - in­clud­ing Wrex­ham.

Hilco UK, a re­struc­tur­ing firm which helps trou­bled re­tail­ers, then agreed to buy the his­toric group sav­ing 130 HMV stores, in­clud­ing those in Ban­gor and Llan­dudno.

But this week HMV tweeted that the Ban­gor store would close on Jan­uary 25.

@HMV Ban­gor tweeted: “Sorry to say we are clos­ing on the 25th of Jan. Feel free to buy up as many bar­gains as pos­si­ble be­fore we go.

“Thanks for your support dur­ing the years. @HMVL­lan­dudno will be the near­est hmv after the 25th.”

The store was opened in Ban­gor in 2006 by Ice­landic girl group Ny­lon.

The Daily Post has con­tacted the HMV for fur­ther de­tails on the planned clo­sure but the firm has not re­sponded.

This an­nounce­ment fol­lows the news on Mon­day that clothes re­tailer Bank had en­tered ad­min­is­tra­tion.

That has placed the fu­ture of stores in Llan­dudno and Wrex­ham at risk although they re­main trad­ing at the cur­rent time while a buyer is sought.

No re­dun­dan­cies have yet been made.
