Zavvi halts game/DVD/music sales

Orders cancelled as supplier goes bust.

Retailer Zavvi has had to cancel all videogame, film and music orders as supplier Entertainment UK falls into administration.

Only books, calendars and "a limited range of other products" will remain on sale for the time being, according to the Zavvi website.

Customers with existing orders for these suspended products will find out by email if their delivery cannot be fulfilled, and, if so, receive a full refund.

"We have not taken this decision lightly, but we believe that this is the right course of action under the circumstances," read a statement.

"We apologise for any inconvenience. Please be assure that we are doing all we can to resolve the situation as quickly as possible."

Naturally, Zavvi high street outlets with stock will be largely unaffected, although new releases, such as Resistance 2, are absent - as found out yesterday whilst snooping around like Columbo.

Entertainment UK also supplied WH Smith, which now has the same supply problems. Other retailers such as GAME, Gamestop and HMV are unaffected.
