Some HMV pop up stores to stay

By | Published on Tuesday 19 January 2010

Six of the so called pop up stores set up by HMV in the run up to Christmas will continue to operate on a permanent basis, the retailer has announced.

The pop up shops were originally intended to be temporary operations for the Christmas period, mainly based in areas where there is now no permanent high street music store since the demise of Zavvi and Woolies at the start of last year. But the retail firm says it will keep six of those units open for the time being.

The six stores that will stay are in Bury, Burnley, Bluewater, Bedford, Loughborough and Torquay.
