The music giant will conduct operations from the Ashton Walk Mall with an expected opening date in July.

A spokesperson from St Nicolas Arcade shopping centre said: "After much speculation on their return to Lancaster, we are excited to announce that HMV will be joining our mix of high street and Independent retailers within the Ashton Walk Mall.

"They will be an excellent addition to the arcade and we look forward to them opening early in July.

"We will keep everyone updated of progress and any upcoming offers."

Its Market Square branch shuttered in 2013 after the company went into administration.

HMV’s events and PR planner Laura Thomas said: “I am happy to confirm that we have secured a site for the city's new HMV store.

“We are delighted that the people of Lancaster will soon have access to the very best film, music, games, technology and merchandise right on their doorstep.”

After closing in March 2013 HMV’s former Lancaster store was transformed into a Morrisons M convenience store.

Lancaster Business Improvement District (BID) manager Rachael Wilkinson said: “It is fantastic news that HMV is returning to Lancaster city centre.

"The store has been missed since it closed its doors in 2013.

“As a city centre which celebrates music and entertainment on an impressive scale, Lancaster is the perfect location for a HMV store.

“HMV will undoubtedly complement the mix of stores already operating in the city centre and will be a welcome return to the business community and shoppers alike.”
