HMV Card now useable - at Banquet Records

The news of HMV going into administration has been the talk of everyone - especially so if you work at a record shop. Banquet boss  jt wrote his immediate thoughts about it on the Banquet tumblr.  

We're very aware and sad that people are looking at losing their jobs, and we're concerned about the effect HMV's possible closure may have on physcial releases in general.  However, one gripe many have is the current situation where gift cards are now no longer valid at HMVs.  Whatever happened, its certainly no fault of the person who got someone a Christmas gift, and its unfair on someone to not be able to use their credit.

We wanted to find a way to make these gift tokens valid at our store.  So this is the idea we could come up with.  We'll offer anyone with a valid HMV gift card 50% off in our store up to and including Sunday 20th January.*

We want people to come and experience our record shop.  To see its not all doom and gloom for music retail nor for the high street in general.  To come and re-embrace physical releases and the experience of buying them.  Pop into our store at 52 Eden St, Kingston (map) and we look forward to welcoming you.

*There are a few terms and conditions.  The offer applies to one single transaction in the physical store only. One transaction may include multiple items. After the transaction the HMV gift card must be handed over, but will be returned in-store only after the end of the promotion. Some products (like gig tickets, pre-orders, sale items, record players and extremely limited releases) will be exempt from the 50% deal. Please note; Deloitte have said that in time the HMV gift vouchers may be useable if and when a new buyer for the chain is found.   Offer ends on Sunday 20th January 2013.  Discount available at the Banquet staff's discretion.

5 Stars!Abandoner says: I'm an HMV employee with a useless gift card, so I'm definitely gonna pop in and spend my worries away. Great idea/offer guys, the thought of getting some records we never even stock at my shop's really cheered me up (even if it's not the most sensible time for me to be spending money)!
5 Stars!Saint November Records says:
This is fantastic gesture from Banquet on so many levels. Anyone new here please take note, the people telling you physical music is dead are very much misinformed in their ignorant generalisations. Whilst it might be true in mass culture, there are many of us still incredibly passionate about it and come here to spend all our hard earnt...     read more
