Here's something we haven't had for a while: a positive story about HMV. Gennaro Castaldo has been able to take a break from trying to put on a brave face to hail the return of vinyl to the Swansea branch:
Initially Swansea will carry a stock of 1,500 vinyl albums.Or, he might have added, wait until our chain shrinks to just those 30 stores. Whichever comes sooner.
HMV head of PR Gennaro Castaldo added: "We are initially embarking on a 12 store trial. If the trial proves the success we hope and expect it to be we will extend it to up to 30 stores and thereafter we'll consider rolling it out to many of our stores in our 240-strong chain."
Still - lovely to see HMV doing something that might tempt music fans back into their shops.
