Zavvi to be resurrected by The Hut - a nation bawls with relief
Zavvi is back, back, back! The entertainment retail chain that hadn’t really been around long enough for anybody to form much of an emotional attachment to is to be resurrected by online entertainment retailer The Hut. EDIT: But only in its online incarnation.
Early signs suggest that the all-new Zavvi will be selling more or less the same stuff that it did before, with the additional lines of perfume and lingerie. It’s a beautiful end to a sad story that threatened to see the end of the brand name that had come to stand for so much over the past… pff, 17 months or something.
Lest we forget, branches of Zavvi used to be Virgin Megastores, the company who also owned that other great entertainment retail name in the sky, Our Price, who collapsed five years ago. Ever wondered what happened to THAT name?
Wonder no more… it’s still around but it’s not what it was.
