what's the deal with Zavvi?
Have they gone under or not?...
first warning sign was when the sale signs were all writen in fucking marker like some pathetic corner shops trying to shift sponges!
too low to be considerd healthy, Xboxs are dirt cheap there now
But a friend of mine reckons that they will come back from it?....Not possible, is it? (please say i'm right - i have money on it)
does that count for the name/brand/everything?....
The administrators are currently looking in to finding buyers for the business, either in part or as a whole. It is very unlikely that anyone will want to buy the whole operation lock-stock as, well, it's not proved to be very profitable. Therefore it's likely that the retail spots will be cherry-picked by other companies. HMV is currently umm-ing and ahh-ing over whether it wants to pick up any of the sites to plug any perceived holes in its UK operations.
Zavvi (Ireland) is a different corporate entity and so is unaffeced by all this.
