Well it appears all is not lost and HMV have brought six Fopp stores, which they will continue to run independently under the Fopp brand. Strangely this covers almost every Fopp I’ve visited, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Tottenham Court Road store is closing however, although another in London (Covent Garden) will be re-opening, but its in the same city so its close, even if London is a very big city.
I’m disappointed that it was HMV (Instead of an independent buyer) that had to rescue the store, but I hope they wont interfere too much, especially in terms of price and product catalogue.
