HMV HQ moves

By | Published on Thursday 4 July 2013


While HMV prepares to move its main London store along the capital’s main shopping street a bit, giving up its current flagship shop to Sports Direct in favour of a smaller base at 363 Oxford Street, the original base of the entertainment retailer, the firm has also moved its corporate headquarters.

According to MCV, HMV’s London HQ, previously in the West End near its flagship store, has moved to a City address in Blackfriars. It follows a considerable downsizing of the workforce at the company’s corporate base when the firm was in administration earlier this year.

As previously reported, a streamlined version of the company was bought out of administration in April by restructuring specialists Hilco.
