Zavvi is to resume selling CDs, DVDs, and video games online this afternoon after the collapse into adminstration of its exclusive supplier, Woolworths' distribution business EUK, forced it to stop selling many of its products on Tuesday.
Zavvi has an exclusive supply agreement with Woolworths’ distribution business EUK, which fell into administration last week.
On Tuesday Zavvi stopped selling CDs, DVDs, and video games on its website because its was no longer able to obtain a supply of products from EUK.
From today, the Zavvi website is to start selling a limited range of CDs, DVDs, and video games that have been stored in its warehouse in Guernsey. Zavvi remains uncertain about how long this supply will last.
A spokesperson said: “This afternoon we will be operating an entertainment web site on a small scale. There will be a limited CD, DVD and games offering until the EUK situation has been resolved.”
Zavvi has been one of the worst-affected retailers in the fall-out of Woolworths' collapse into administration, and there are fears it will take a huge hit if it cannot fulfil orders in the crucial run-up to Christmas.
