11/04/2008 10:15:00 AM Eastern

Canton, Mass. — Tweeter has notified a Massachusetts state agency that it is closing its headquarters here by Dec. 31 as part of a “permanent entire company closing.”

According to a report by the Associated Press, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development received the notification by letter on Monday.

The letter, a copy of which was obtained by TWICE, was sent by Tweeter's human resources VP R. Michael Rudman, and indicated that affected employees had also been notified of the shutdown.

The chain was sold to liquidators last Thursday, which the Boston Globe has identified as Hudson Capital Partners and Tiger Capital.
