HMV joins Channel Islands rivals

June 24th by Neil Long
The recent trend for cut-price online entertainment stores will see another major player head over to Guernsey in the coming months, with HMV the latest to make the move.The firm claims that it has now outgrown its Birmingham distribution centre, so sees a switch to Guernsey as an obvious choice.

“Once HMV got to a point where it needed to relocate its Internet fulfilment facility, it obviously had to take the changing nature of this market into account,” said HMV’s Gennaro Castaldo. “Until a level playing field is created for all businesses, I'm afraid you have little option but to try and operate on the same basis if you are to remain competitive in this market.”
