Zavvi suspend all online sales because of Woolworths deal
The effects of the collapse of Woolies have reached beyond the ill-fated brand to claim another casuality. High street entertainment chain Zavvi has suspended all online trading for the time being, less than a fortnight before Christmas.
The problem stems from an arrangement for Zavvi (better known under their previous guise of Virgin Megastores) to receive a significant amount of its stock from Entertainment UK, the distribution arm of the Woolworths Group. Recent events mean Zavvi are struggling to fulfill orders, and given the choice between losing trade on the floor of its stores and losing online orders, have decided to opt for the latter.
If you've previously placed an order with Zavvi, you should have already received an email and been told whether your order has been cancelled.
