Local HMV jobs under threat
Tuesday 15th January 2013, 8:21AM GMT.
HMV staff in Guernsey face an anxious wait after the entertainment chain announced it was to call in administrators.
Yesterday’s news makes the chain the latest casualty of the High Street and puts more than 4,000 jobs under threat throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Accountancy giant Deloitte will keep HMV’s 239 stores open, including Guernsey’s, while it assesses the business and searches for potential buyers.
The news follows last week’s closure of the Jessops store in St Peter Port.
