HUDDERSFIELD'S HMV store in Kingsgate is to shut.

Administrators for the troubled retail chain today announced that dozens of stores are to shut - and the Huddersfield shop is one of them.

The branch employs 13 people and they have been told the shop will close "in the next four to six weeks".  

HMV’s administrators are to close 66 shops at the music chain in a move set to cost nearly 1,000 jobs.  

Deloitte said the shops would continue to trade but the closures were expected over the next one to two months.
