November cut-off for HMV cards
MUSIC chain HMV's new owners have confirmed they will exchange all valid gift cards, which were not honoured earlier this year when the company went into receivership, for cards for the new business.
Hilco Capital said customers will have until the middle of November to exchange their old gift cards – and must register online. Music fans, many of whom had received gift cards as Christmas presents, were left out of pocket when the chain went into receivership in January. Customers with valid gift cards must register online and will then be issued with a new card from October 14.
They will have until November 15 to use the new card. Gift cards can be used in the four HMV stores on Henry Street, The Dundrum Centre and Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in Dublin and the Crescent Shopping Centre in Limerick and the dual-branded Xtra-Vision/ HMV stores around the country.
