HMV is opening a new store at Merry Hill next month – after shutting its doors on Sunday (April 24).

Store bosses have moved to reassure music, film, TV and pop culture fans that the store will return to the mall on Friday May 20.

It will re-open in the former Christmas House unit – 77a – with all existing staff relocating to the new shop.

The new 6,738sq ft shop will offer more than 20,000 different products including 4,700 different vinyl albums, 4,500 CDs, 5,550 films and TV shows on DVD and 4K HD Blu Ray, plus more than 2,900 pop culture products – including more than 450 different T-shirt designs.

Store manager Martin Johnson said: “We’re excited to take HMV Merry Hill to a new space, offering even more of the best in entertainment across pop culture, music, film and TV. We can’t wait to open our doors in May and welcome back our customers with fantastic offers.”

HMV managing director Phil Halliday added: “HMV has a long history of offering signings and performances from amazing artists and bands in its stores, and we’re looking forward to bringing even more fan events and amazing fan pop culture ranges, film, TV, technology and music to Merry Hill soon.”

The first 25 customers to the new HMV store will receive a free pop culture swag bag.

Jonathan Poole, Merry Hill centre manager, said: “HMV is a firm-favourite among shoppers at Merry Hill thanks to its extensive range of music, films and bingeworthy boxsets, along with a host of merchandise perfect for pop culture fans. So, when the new 6,700sq ft store opens in late May it will offer even more of the best entertainment for shoppers to choose from.

“HMV’s move is the latest in a series of exciting store renovations across Merry Hill.”
