There is going to be a lot of empty shops next year. Very sad.
yes very sad, but what a shite name, Zavvi.
Takes me back years ago to the infamous boo.com, the sports retail site which spent millions of investment money on advertising just to tell people who they were etc
I know they've gone bust cos of Woolworths but surely they could of thought of something better and bought an appropriate generic to sell dvd's from!
so who else do you think is on the critical list?,must be poundstretcher and the pound shops with the pound so weak against other currencies? anymore
I think poundstretcher and any poundshop should be fine. They will pay more for the goods but their customer base should increase significantly over the coming months.
Any shop that sells luxury goods will struggle. Anything from handbags to sofas.
I would put flooring and carpet stores high up on the list.
zavvi was knackered because of woolworths. Woolworths supplied zavvi.
poundshops will thrive, we'll all be shopping in them soon.
my moneys on sedo next.
scooter beat me to it.
Car companies will suffer imho, people who would normally trade in will think twice.
Doubtful. They're going to be the outlets that benefit from everyone else's misfortune, as they'll have bankrupt and desperate retailers lining up to dump unsold stock through them at throwaway prices, just to raise a few quid and/or clear the shelves for next year...
Yes Zavvi is a crap name.
Poundshops will be laughing !!!
Funny Stender "" Sedo will be next "" lol
Anybody want to buy shares in sedo parking LTD ? ( joke )
What about SCS and DFS, people usually buy a new 3 pc suite at this time of the year, can't see it now though ? got mine in August off Ebay
NB* This is all positive, the retailers close down and the e-tailers grow stronger = more business for us publishers or affiliate marketers, whatever you want to call them ?
Zavvi must have incompetent management to say the least. They could have seen this coming ten years ago.
I don't think its sad at all... This is just another phase of the economic cycle... We've seen it before, we will see it again...
It just means there will be more oppurtunity for investment in market areas that were once monopolised by corporate giants... New brands will emerge, diversify, expand and then?... collapse, back to square one and round we go again...
I was actually in Zavvi this afternoon and the one in our local shopping centre use to be the Virgin Megastore so I just assumed that they were connected and rebranded, clearly not coz I cant see Richard B going bust any time soon!
