REPRESENTATIVES FROM DELOITTE will today be talking to employees from the various HMV stores around the country today as staff in two Limerick stores stage a sit-in.

The spokesperson confirmed that the company had been in touch with staff from both of the stores in Limerick and said that the receiver is working on a solution.

The receiver is looking at all the options in order to facilitate payment as quickly as possible. He’s taking it all on board and is assessing the viability of everything at the moment. We’ll be working with staff through the whole process.
