Media Release: HMV voted best music retail chain

THE prestigious award, which is voted on by the UK’s record companies, labels and distributors, is HMV’s seventh in a row and its tenth in total since the retail categories were first introduced in the early 1990’s – a record for the Industry.

HMV Europe managing director, Steve Knott, comments: “To earn such consistent recognition from our Industry peers – the people whose product we are ultimately selling – is one of the highest accolades we can hope to receive, and I am particularly pleased that the outstanding contribution made to our company’s performance over the past year by all our staff – across our 200-plus stores and store operations, our distribution centres and our head office departments – has been acknowledged in this way.

“We look forward to another rewarding twelve months working with all our suppliers to promote their key releases and new artists across all genres.”
