HMV High Wycombe will close in the next four to six weeks, the music chain’s administrators have confirmed.
Deloitte announced 37 further HMV stores – including the one in the Eden shopping centre – will be closed, weeks after 66 stores around the country were earmarked for the chop.
Staff from the Wycombe store tweeted today: “It saddens us to announce that we are closing down.
“We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers, old and new, for all support that has been given and we will greatly miss the conversations we have shared with all.
“We will continue to trade until further notice and will of course keep all customers informed and up-to date. Once again, thank you for your continued support #SaveHMV.”
Staff later added they felt for the Eden shopping centre as it will have “more empty stores than occupied ones at this rate”.
Disappointed Wycombe shoppers took to the social media site to bemoan the loss and to offer their support to the store’s staff.
Louise N tweeted: “Gutted for HMV High Wycombe staff - really going to miss the people and the store! Where will I browse random DVDs now?! Good luck guys!”
David Crosby tweeted: “So sad. Good luck to all your staff that will be losing their jobs. Where to buy DVD's when you're gone.”
