HMV owner Hilco has confirmed that its Oxford Street store will close after opening over 30 years ago.

The Telegraph reports that the store at 150 Oxford Street will become a Sports Direct outlet, while HMV will open a new, smaller site at 363 Oxford Street.

HMV’s 60,000ft Oxford Street store has played home to many high-profile game launches and features a gameplay suite.
