Canadian firm Sunrise Records rescued HMV in February after the company had collapsed into administration in December 2018. 

The News has approached HMV for comment on whether the new Commercial Road store will be a permanent addition to the high street or a temporary one – as only season roles are being advertised – they have not yet responded.
