THE MANAGER of an independent store in Barnstaple is furious about HMV opening a pop-up shop in the area over the Christmas period.

From Monday, to January 5, the store, which sells a range of CDs, DVDS, video games, headphones and other equipment, will open in Green Lanes shopping centre.

Chris Stirland, manager at I-Lab in Barnstaple High Street said they had been forced to stop advertising for extra staff over the festive period due to fears HMV would take customers away.

He said: "It has come to kill Christmas for all of us. It is just very frustrating."
