Fopp Edinburgh saved as full list of HMV closures released

Administrators KPMG have revealed the 27 HMV and Fopp stores set to close across the UK after the retailer was rescued by a Canadian retailer.

The list of closures comes after it was announced that HMV had been acquired out of administration Sunrise Records, safeguarding the future of nearly 1,500 staff.

However, 27 unprofitable stores will close with immediate effect, resulting in 455 redundancies.
