Music Zone sets 100-store target for expansion

Independent entertainment retailer Music Zone plans to double store numbers in the next few years.

The retailer has 46 shops at the moment, but believes it can have 100 within five years. Incoming managing director Steven Oliver - replacing Russ Grainger, who has become chairman - said that Music Zone will open about 15 shops this year.

He added that Music Zone will continue to be aggressive on price to remain competitive.

He said: 'Punters see us as the first stop for music and film. If we have to cut prices on lead items to stay there, we will.'
