HMV Ireland has Deloitte appointed as receiver
Deloitte Ireland has been appointed as the receiver of HMV Ireland, meaning 300 jobs are at risk in the sector. Earlier today, HMV stores in the country were closed temporarily without an explanation, and will remain closed until Deloitte Ireland “assesses the viability of the company,” reports Eurogamer. The firm said it will be searching to find a buyer for the business. The site notes that HMV in Ireland is a separate entity to the UK business, which wasn’t thought to be going into administration with the rest of HMV as of yesterday.
