Nearly a month after Fopp shut their doors for administration, HMV have announced today that they have purchased 6 stores.
Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham and most importantly (for us!) London will all be getting the stores back and depending upon landlords' consent will re-open as soon as possible continuing to trade under the Fopp name. London won't be getting the gigantic Tottenham Court Road store back though, instead it'sthe Earlham Street one by Cambridge Circus which has been labelled as a store that traded profitably. An HMV spokesperson said, "“These stores will operate independently of the main HMV chain in order to preserve their distinct customer offer."
