The first 25 customers to visit on Friday will also receive a completely free opening day goodie bag, and a new ‘HMV delivers’ service is also being launched. Wherein, shoppers will be able to order any items that are not currently stocked in the downtown store to be delivered right to their doorstep.
The new outlet set up and ready to operate in Units 43-44 will be staffed by team members from the previous store. HMV’s relocation comes after second-hand retailer Clinton Cards closed its doors early last month.
Matt Stockwell, Store Manager, said: “We are so excited to open our brand new store in Sunderland, showcasing some of the best entertainment from pop culture, music, film and television. With fantastic offers and free goodie bags for opening day, the new opening is definitely not to be missed next weekend.
Phil Halliday, Managing Director of HMV, said: “We are delighted to be moving to a bigger and better location in Sunderland. HMV has a long history of offering signings and performances from amazing artists and bands in its stores, and we look forward to bringing more amazing events to Sunderland soon.
