Springfield, N.J. - Sixth Avenue Electronics is selling a 33-percent stake in its business to an outside investor who will help the retailer pay down outstanding debt.

The unnamed investor will become a non-operating partner in the A/V specialty chain, Sixth Avenue told TWICE, and senior management led by brothers Billy and Mike Temiz will remain in place.

No further details were immediately available, although the company denied a report in an industry blog identifying a Brooklyn camera distributor as its new backer.

The New York metro-area dealer recently closed 10 of its 19 stores following forays into Philadelphia and Delaware, and settled a $9.6 million suit by GE's inventory finance unit over a loan default.
