Fopp is closed

Alas! One of my favourite shops closed today. I went past it on the bus and noticed it was shut, and sure enough, Fopp has gone into administration. I thought it was a little suspect when they stopped taking credit cards a couple of days ago, but then they did sell everything so cheap, no wonder they couldn’t keep up. I regularly used to go into Virgin, listen to an album on their listening posts and then buy it for half the price round the corner. And they had books as well. Good thing I raided their bargain basement on wednesday.

Anyway, Fopp was the UK’s largest independent music supplier, which is a bad sign for music shops everywhere. And no, Amazon and itunes are not music shops.

  1. That’s two cheap, independent music shops that have gone under this year – Music Zone went into administration in January. Fopp tried to save them, but it was a bit ambitious as Music Zone had more stores. It’s probably that that killed them.
