HMV, which is owned by Hilco Capital, has announced that it will open a new store in Dublin creating 35 jobs.

The new store will be located at the old A Wear premises on Grafton Street.

It brings the total number of HMV stores in Ireland to seven.

The opening date for the store has yet to be announced.

The company's CEO Larry Howard said:  "HMV returning to Grafton Street has been a priority for Hilco Capital."

Hilco bought HMV from the receiver after the music store went into receivership in January last year.
