WOKING'S HMV store is to cease trading as part of the latest round of closures.
HMV in The Peacocks shopping centre, Woking, is to close.
The joint administrators announced the closure of the store in The Peacocks shopping centre today ( Wednesday, February 20).
Eleven staff jobs will be affected by the closure.
It is among 37 more branches of the collapsing music and entertainment company that will be closing in the next four to six weeks.
The closures come on top of the announced 66 stores earmarked to shut. In total, 464 jobs will be lost.
Nick Edwards, joint administrator, said: "This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of the restructured business continuing as a going concern.
"We are extremely grateful to the staff for their continued strong support and commitment during an understandably difficult period."
