Deloitte, the company in charge of HMV’s administration, has announced the closure of a further 37 branches, taking the total number of closures up to over a hundred (in other words, almost half of the UK and Ireland’s branches). Worry not, though, as Elton John is here to save the day! The star’s spokesman revealed, “Elton has always been a big supporter of record shops. He will be doing something with HMV although as yet we cannot confirm what or when that would be”. Converting the doomed shops into florists, perhaps?
