Two Xtra-vision and HMV integrated stores officially open in Blackpool and Douglas in Cork today. The stores are among 28 locations around the country to feature the new dual branded stores.
To celebrate the official opening, Xtra-vision say they will be offering “fantastic opening day Door Buster Deals”, including blu-ray players for €9.99, games consoles from €150, new release music from €7.99, movies from €2.99 and new release games from €29.99. All on a first come first served basis.
Commenting on the openings, Larry Howard, CEO of Hilco Capital Ireland said: “Integrating HMV with Xtra-vision is a very exciting way of bringing the HMV brand into towns all over Ireland. Most of these towns have never had a HMV store located in close proximity, and Hilco is looking forward to delivering the HMV experience to these locations. We hope the people of Cork welcome and embrace the new Xtra-vision / HMV stores in the area.”
Already, 11 Xtra-vision and HMV integrated stores have officially opened at locations around the country in October, with 7 stores opening on Saturday 26th October. As well as Blackpool and Douglas, stores will also open in Enniscorthy, Galway, Clonmel, Ennis and Artane. A further 10 stores will open the following week.
