In a somewhat surprising move, considering the administrators are keeping HMV’s stores running, Deloitte have taken the HMV site offline. It looks like sales are limited to stores, but are they simply prepping for a fire-sale site?
Those hoping to be able to grab a bargain online, when and if HMV has some sort of fire sale, look like they’ll be flat out of luck, but it’s possible the HMV website might just be getting tweaked ahead of sales.
At any rate, it seems odd to take down a viable selling platform, considering Deloitte’s attempting to actually keep HMV running ahead of sale of the business. Let’s hope it knows what its doing, for the sake of the 4,350 people with jobs on the line. [HMV]
