By | Published on Thursday 29 January 2009


More Zavvi stores are to close, meaning another 295 employees will be unemployed.

The latest closures will leave just 48 of the former Virgin Megastores still trading. HMV have said they may buy some more of those, but if they do it’s only likely to be a handful.

The latest closures are in Birmingham (Pavilion Centre), Bromley, Canterbury, Colchester, East Kilbride, Exeter, Ipswich, Kensington, Chelsea, Dudley (Merry Hill Centre), Newcastle (Monument Mall), Norwich, Oxford, Stirling and Taunton.
