Brighton’s HMV store saved

Music and entertainment store HMV will remain open in Brighton’s Churchill Square despite the closure of almost 30 shops across the UK, the company have announced, following its acquisition by Sunrise Records.

At the end of last year Britain’s music news was full of despairing reports about HMV’s misfortunes, with the company heading into administration for the second time in six years. It seemed like another of Britain’s major high street music retailers was about to close its doors for good, a couple of years shy of its 100th anniversary.
