HMV is a top UK retailer of music, film, games and technology products, with over 120 stores in the UK, offering a wide selection of new release and catalogue titles. The HMV brand, made famous by the iconic image of the ‘dog and trumpet’ trademark featuring ‘Nipper, is practically synonymous with the very history and development of British popular music and culture.
HMV’s rich heritage as a retail specialist stretches back to 1921 when its first store in London’s Oxford Street was officially opened by the celebrated British composer and conductor, Sir Edward Elgar. Since that time HMV has made music and entertainment available to customers in every format imaginable. From sheet music and the earliest gramophone 78s to today’s digital downloads. On the way HMV has taken in vinyl singles and albums, cassettes and CDs as well as film and TV content on VHS, DVD & Blu-ray and games titles across all platforms.
More recently HMV has gone ‘back to the future’ by carrying the latest portable technology such as headphones and tablets. As one of the first high street brands to recognise the passion that so many of us have for music, film and games, HMV virtually invented the idea of instore events and product launches, and over the years many of the world’s greatest artistes have appeared in its stores to meet their fans, sometimes to perform live or occasionally just to shop.
In response to changes in technology, HMV have diversified into new ways of giving people access to the music, film and games, by getting involved in venues, festivals and cinemas. In 2013, HMV Group plc went into administration, with a new, streamlined hmv emerging two months later under new ownership as a lean and agile private company. Today, HMV trades from over 120 stores in the UK. An updated product mix, refreshed stores and new digital services, together with a commitment to bring customers more exclusive in-store events and experiences than ever has seen HMV regain its place as the home of entertainment.
