HMV Buys Fopp

Hot off the presses is the new that my best loved retail shop will make a return, after the announcement that HMV has bought the Fopp brand. What shops will be reopened remain to be seen, but Edinburgh and Glasgow have both been mentioned along with Covent Garden.

Will be interesting to see how HMV will run their new baby..

Oh..they’ve also got the website back up again.

  1. Unconfirmed reports suggest that it will be Rose Street branch which will reopen.

  2. Also the chat is that each Fopp will run independently of HMV to provide “local knowledge” to the market. I’ll need to closely scrutinise the pricing in both shops before deciding if indeed it will retain it’s independent roots.
