HMV sign deal to get fresh stock

News: 19th February 2013 by Louise Dodgson under Record Labels, Selling & Distributing Your Music

A new agreement has been signed with stockists to ensure the remaining HMV branches can still trade effectively by replenishing stock and bringing in fresh stock too, and meaning record labels can still release their products through the major retail chain. This support from stockists will be essential if HMV is to survive with its trimmed down chain of stores. 

Last month supermarkets Tesco and Sainsburys showed interest in taking on some of the old HMV stores and converting them but there is no further news on this as yet. Sadly more HMV store closures have been announced this week. Keep up to date on the HMV happenings via the links below.
