Shame as HMV are a good company better than Zavvi ever was really and I like that the Glasgow store has free gaming tournaments with gamers chairs and such.

maybe so but they are pretty expensive compared to online retailers - maybe the hut group will buy the name oO

Not good

HMV failed to move with the times and failed to keep up with the competition (with regards to high street pricing). Is this news REALLY surprising?

greedy companies with poor customer services ALWAYS go down in the end ..........:{

Would be nice and ironic if they got replaced on the high street by independent retailers.

I always found HMV reasonably priced for a high street store but not as good as specific types of shops for goods they sell i.e the deals for games werent as good as places like Gamestation sometimes but in general the normal price would be the same, and they werent as good as supermarket reductions but for every other thing like dvds they had really cheap deals.

Plus never really had bad customer service at HMV only really experienced chatty staff mostly in early 20's and normally in education talking about shared interests.

From the same blog on sky news ....

UPDATE 17:55: HMV has been in touch with me and rightly points out that I have omitted to mention two important facts. The first is that the company is profitable (to the expected tune of about £46m this year, according to analysts) and generates a fair amount of cash.

The second, more importantly, is that there's no immediate fear for the company's future. In other words, we're not about to wake up tomorrow morning and find that HMV has done a Woolworths.

Ouch. Don't think I'd be chuckling about that...

Rumours like this cause the share price to crash and the company serious difficulties with trying to re finance the debt they have. "If" they did go under it will speed up the adoption of streaming services.

HMV, which also owns bookseller Waterstone's, has hired KPMG's debt advisory team to assist with a project that could include renegotiating some of the terms of its borrowing facilities with its lenders.
