Galway Bay fm newsroom – The Galway city branches of HMV and XtraVision are to close by the end of the month.
It’s been just over two years since a number of HMV and XtraVision stores in Ireland were reopened under new owners Hilco.
The Galway branch, which is based at Edward Square, currently employs 10 people, and was among several regional branches to reopen in September 2013.
It’s expected that further jobs will go at the XtraVision branch at Galway Shopping Centre.
Management at HMV has taken to social media to announce that the stores will close by January 31st, but an official closing date has not been confirmed.
They’re calling on customers to use any giftcards for HMV or XtraVision as soon as possible.
