It's not in the old enormous building it once occupied, though, as the smaller branch -- branded more formally as His Master's Voice -- is a little further down the street in a building the music giant originally occupied from the 1922 and that served out the last decade as a Footlocker outlet.
While it might not signify the complete revival of the battered UK high street, it's good to see one familiar name return. A relaunch of the HMV web site is planned for next month, with the chain also looking to enter the app-based music market with its own player some time later. [Independent]
