Anyone know of the fate of the Peterborough HMV? There is also a Zavvi in the main shopping centre so I wondered if this was targeted for termination.

Had it confirmed today that the Bold Street HMV has four weeks of business left - considering it was only built as a temporary store anyway, it's not much of a loss - but none of the staff are being kept on.
