HMV will open its new store on Grafton Street in Dublin on Saturday.

In a statement from the record store owners Hilco, it was confirmed HMV would open its new store at 72 Grafton Street at 9am on Saturday morning.

Hilco Capital Ireland chief executive Larry Howard commented: "We're thrilled to have secured this new premises on Dublin's most popular retail street. The relocation marks the continuation of our expansion plans, and we're looking forward to continuing to deliver the best choice in music, movies, games and technology on Grafton Street."

"It's particularly apt that HMV is moving to No.72 - a location that has historically been a home for entertainment on the street. The building originally housed the Grafton Cinema and entertained the people of Dublin until finally closing its doors in December 1973. It's fitting that HMV is bringing entertainment back to this building."
