In HMV's case it's purely down to inefficient management, regardless of the nationality of who was behind the till. Having said that, are we seriously going to take hundreds of thousands of Romanians and Bulgarians here next year, when we haven't room to move? The thought is mind-boggling.

GOLDFEVERRUSH 15 Jan'13 - 10:41 - 18024 of 18031 I must agree. Popped into my local McDonalds, didn't buy anything as virtually impossible to eat their so called food. Any how, I noticed all their staff, including the manager was not British. In a flat next to a friend of mine lives 16 Bulgarians, the flat lease states for no more than 3. In the living room are 6 mattresses and they all have two jobs. For them £6.50 per hour is an absolute fortune, for the British it is not even a living wage. After only a few short years have earned enough to buy a house in their country and retire. As for our local 3 star hotel. Except for management all the staff come from the lower end of the socio-scale of either Bulgaria or Poland. I couldn't understand hardly a word being spoken to me. When I asked the management how they got on, they said because they have worked with them for some time they have become use to their accents.

I'm old enough, as are some here, to remember the days of the local record shops, certainly not chains. 3 singles for £1, 6/8d each. Everything vinyl, and a chance to listen to your favourite track. Also, one of our local shops would play the record new for you, to prove there were no scratches etc. We all have to move with the times, sadly the management at HMV didn't. They could have embraced the internet and digital downloading years ago.. Today's retail world dictates that you can go into your local supermarket and buy just about everything. Notice, apart from Woolies, that those that have gone under have been the "specialist" ie selling basically the one thing, shops. Clintons with cards Comet with electricals Jessops with cameras and now HMV with CD and DVD's, In the end the High Streets will be bereft of shops, and full of flats to accommodate yet another massive inflow of people from EU countries. I wish I was Australian.

The DEATH OF THE HIGH STREET and PUBS was also the fault of the LABOUR.Due to them increasing the min wage every year and NI and allowing mass immigration into the country.They don't spend NO money here!!! they buy the basics and send the rest back home.Go to most citys in the Uk,go to London west end no person working is British.They don't go to pubs,shop like us,go to day outs and spend money here.

Business quote of the day - "Going into administration gives HMV an opportunity for a substantial and decent rebirth."

The current CEO - Jessops, now HMV!!!!! Reminds me of the CEO of Alliance and Leicester taken over for next to nothing by Santander. He then became CEO of Bradford and Bingley, with-in 4 months had sold off the best bits to Santander leaving the rest of the company to go bust.

What annoyed me was the way HMV in its marketing emails a couple of weeks ago was pushing DVDs etc of films on a pre-order basis, where the release date was a few weeks away. Great for HMV in cash flow terms, take the money now, but deliver later. Hopefully no one was taken in by that, I certainly wasn't. Nothing wrong with such pre-orders in principle, but when the seller is in such precarious circumstances, not good.

grahmam2405 - What about an HMV spokesman saying just days ago we have sufficient funds to pay the January £30mln amortisation plus, plus, plus other positive statements. That the Blue Cross sale was a new promotional idea rather than saying basically it is a closing down sale to get rid of unwanted stock.

I finally sold my last few HMV because of the advice given to me by a distant friend who is a retail analyst who said to me that at least 2, in his opinion 3 well known retail chains would go into administration in the first 3 months of 2013, before the quarterly rent is due in March, with at least one of this being in the New Year. So far he has been 100% correct – Jessops and HMV. I did my best to pass on this information as I posted on this thread last week and just before the New Year, the above information.

Loganair - good point, but then we all know how greedy landlords are, in commercial and private property. On the subject of the HMV gift cards, the directors have run this into the ground due to their inability to spot changing trends, therefore in my opinion the gift cards should all be honoured, and the cost of it should come directly from the pockets of all the directors who ran this company so badly.

"yet again days before a company goes bust the directors are still issuing positive statements" Did you read the RNS sent out before Xmas? -- Current market trading conditions result in material uncertainties facing the business. Probable covenant breach at the end of January 2013

One thing that needs to change in the UK is to make it easier and less costly for retailers to close shops or to reduce rents. I understand HMV Canada are receiving a great deal of help from their landlords. I also understand that while as a going concern it costs between £500k and £1mln to close a shop, however while in administration around £50k or even less. Therefore for HMV to close say 50 shops would have cost in the region of £40mln, however now in administration to close the same 50 shops will cost no more than £2.5mln.
