Zavvi to disappear from the High Street
All the remaining 18 Zavvi stores selling music and DVDs are to close in the next two days although a handful will survive under new management trading under a different name. The Brighton store will close with the loss of 28 jobs.
Ten stores have been sold (5 to HMV), and a further three are also expected to find a new owner imminently. The Brighton Churchill Square outlet was one of the few to continue trading after the company went into administration on Christmas Eve.
There will be a loss of 446 jobs across all the stores. Before it hit hard times the company employed 2,300 full-time staff.
