Professor Green & Wretch 32 express sadness at the news.
Got any unused HMV vouchers? Well unfortunately you won’t be able to use them as the entertainment store has gone into administration.
This means, thousands of jobs are at risk, and there’s a chance that you’ll no longer be able to pop into your local branch to buy a DVD or CD (as opposed to just downloading an MP3).
Professor Green was among the stars who have been tweeting about the news since it broke last night, saying:
“hmv bankrupt. we may as well just give up on any medium that involves hard copy and get on with it. #sadtimes”
Traktor rapper Wretch 32 tweeted his concern about job losses if HMV do actually close:
The HMV stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland will be kept open for the time being while they look for a buyer.
So when was the last time you bought a CD, or is it all about the MP3 download for you?
