I hope my memory is right for this: If I consider the HMV stores in London and its immediate outskirts, there has been a zero net change in the number of HMV stores in recent years. Pre-pandemic, HMV lost the flagship Oxford Street store. Post-pandemic, it also lost its Staines store. However, it has opened one in Watford, and now in Bexleyheath. So overall, the same number of HMV stores in the London area. But of course, the net floor area is reduced. The Oxford Street store was 3 floors lost. Edit: the store at Lakeside has also been relocated. It used to be near the main entrance of the shopping centre, but today, it's nearer to the back entrance. Probably cheaper rent.
