A Sad Day In The U.k

The last remnants of HMV are in trouble in the United Kingdom according to Sky News, a year and a half after closing in Canada.

Founded in 1921 in London, this music store flourished and became Britain’s largest music retailer until running into financial issues in 2010 due to the shift towards digital music and film, which resulted in the closure of the World’s Largest Music Store on Oxford Street on January 14th, 2014 and Irish chain in August 2016.

Today the chain has entered administration for the second time since January 5th, 2011 and at risk are 130 stores and 2200 employees.
