HMV is closing three of its six remaining U.S. stores, as well as the office housing its small U.S. corporate staff. The HMV stores in Atlanta, Boston and Marlborough, Mass., are holding going-out-of-business sales.

The move will leave the chain with two locations in Manhattan and one in Strongville, Ohio.

HMV operates 100 stores in Canada.
