JD Sports announced to replace HMV in Bury St Edmunds arc shopping centre
JD Sports will move into the arc shopping centre in Bury St Edmunds, in the unit to be vacated by HMV.
The sports-fashion retailer will leave its current base in Buttermarket for the larger premises in March, with all staff expected to move.
JD's management has said a 'small number of additional staff' will be recruited.
HMV is set to close for the final time on January 25, with high business rates blamed for the departure.
The music, film and computer game retailer is also closing branches in Glasgow and Nuneaton.
The arc shopping centre has been approached for comment.
