HMV SHOPS IN the UK are set to start accepting vouchers from tomorrow, Sky News is reporting.

The 16 HMV stores in the republic will remain closed, however.

The troubled retailer had been criticised for selling gift cards right up until they entered administration and then failing to accept them.

David Carson, a partner in Deloitte Ireland, was named as the receiver to the HMV Ireland company last Wednesday, 16 January.

In the days that followed there were a number of sit-ins in Irish stores as some of the 300 employees throughout the 16 stores protested at not being paid for time already worked.

Now that these sit-ins have ended, all 16 stores in Ireland remain closed.

Speaking to TheJournal.ie, a spokesperson from Deloitte confirmed that the stores in Ireland would “remain closed when he [Carson] carries out his assessment,” essentially preventing vouchers from being honoured in Ireland.
