HMV’s Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush has reopened today.
This comes as a result of owner Doug Putman’s efforts to negotiate with landlords to reopen the 27 stores that were recently closed as a result of HMV’s administration. Putman continues the push to reopen HMV’s flagship store on Oxford Street, but there has been no further news on that front.
About a third of the stores closed have reopened now, including stores in Merry Hill, Tunbridge Wells, and Plymouth, Reading and Meadowhall.
HMV is taking different, innovative approaches on the shop front, recently partnering with Tixserve, a digital ticket-selling platform, as part of its mission to provide more live events at its venues.
