HMV IS returning to its original shop on Oxford Street after 13 years away, the music retailer’s new owner Hilco Capital confirmed yesterday.

In a boost for the company’s recovery efforts after going into administration in January, HMV will move back into 363 Oxford Street in early October.

The store, which housed HMV from 1921 to 2000, is currently a branch of Foot Locker. Hilco plans to install a neon sign featuring the firm’s 1950s His Master’s Voice logo.
