Acquisition triples store count
Music and entertainment retailer Fopp has bought failed rival Music Zone from administrators Deloitte.

Fopp, which has 33 UK stores, has acquired 67 Music Zone outlets, the Music Zone head office and warehouse in Stockport and also its warehouse in Denton.

Deloitte partner Bill Dawson said: 'We are pleased with the disposal to Fopp, and wish them every success in the future. This represents a much better outcome for creditors and other stakeholders than a piece-meal disposal.'
