HMV Oxford Street Now Has An Official Opening Date

Remember the great previous days, whenever you’d pop all the way down to HMV on a Saturday, look via all of the JLS and ‘Twilight’ posters and choose up the newest Saturdays album earlier than heading to Subway to chomp down an Italian BMT? Us too. The nostalgic days of yore might be about to make an enormous comeback, as HMV has introduced the opening date for its new Oxford Street retailer. 
That’s proper, after a tearful departure from the UK excessive road in 2019, the CD emporium is returning to consumers IRL this month. We can already hear the sound of skinny movies of plastic being torn from the skin of DVD containers. 
HMV will open on November 24 at 363 Oxford Street, the handle that hosted the very first HMV retailer in 1921. Called the HMV Shop, the flagship will be the biggest leisure outlet in London, flogging vinyls, popular culture merch, music, movie and TV tech, in addition to having an area to host performances and signings. 
Opening in 1921, HMV Oxford Street was as soon as a musical establishment, the place the Beatles’ first demo tape was copied in 1962, and the place Blur performed a rooftop gig in 1995. After closing in 2019, the flailing music retailer was saved by Canadian music entrepreneur Doug Putman, who mentioned the Oxford Street reopening could be ‘the launchpad for an thrilling new period for HMV’.
