There has been a lot of news regarding the biggest music and entertainment retail store in the UK, HMV, after they recently went into administration. The loss of this huge chain of stores would have a devastating effect on how music and film is purchased in the UK, let alone the personal effect on the thousands of employees, however a recent development has set things back in a more positive direction after Hilco UK acquired all of HMV's debts. Whilst not in the clear, this is a huge step forward in saving the last existing chain of music and movie retailers in the UK.
