HULL: HMV's administrators are to accept gift cards at the collapsed music chain.
Despite the music chain continuing to sell gift cards until the day before it collapsed, administrators Deloitte stopped accepting them once appointed to the business last week.
However from today, the gift cards and vouchers will now be redeemed.
Administrator Nick Edwards said the decision had been made after assessing HMV's financial position.
