thank godness i havent ordered from them for christmas pressies
#3
oh dear, looks like a lot of companys have fingers in lots of pies!
#4
That would be why my order hasn't arrived then :?
#5
Probably why they wouldn't take my order for a CD last night....
#6
This is all very worrying at the moment, must admit daughter is wanting a digital camera for christmas so we bought it in a shop rather than on line only because worried you don't know who is going to "go" next.
#7
Zavvi were and are rubbish anywho, hopefully they will go too.
#8
They're not taking any more orders - apart from books!
#9
I have an order there but says it is in progress (being delivered from Guernsey).

oh well, not a problem but I would like to know for sure so I can get it elsewhere.

Yea, I've not had good experiences with them in the past... but I buy from them when I can as I have a Virgin Credit Card, and get an extra 10% off... not gonna be able to do that now, bah!
#11
I never ordered from Zavvi in first place and never will! lol
#12
looks like the wii game i ordered for my son isnt gonna arrive then?:x
#13
..... & another one bites the dust!!

This could have something to do with Woolies as they owned distribution companies too like EUK, they supple all major retailers.
#15
Yup, big announcement on first page states (try deleting history if you can't see it) that they get supplies from the same source as Woolies.

However, I just tried ordering the same game I am waiting for and it let me get right to the checkout payment area...then I stopped obviously.
#16
EUK also supplied the big supermarkets as well, do I see empty shelves in a few weeks.... :lol:

"Distributor Entertainment UK halted CD deliveries after Woolworths, which it is the distribution arm for, went into administration on Wednesday (November 26), reports BBC News.

The company had provided delivery of physical formats of music to retailers including Zavvi, Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and WH Smith, forcing companies to employ alternative delivery methods in order to make sure the CDs were on the shelves in time."
#18
I did most of my Christmas shopping a while back so i'm okay.

My younger Brother though has three DVD's on order from Zavvi.

Ouch.

Agreed

ordered twice from them
both times around 2 weeks after ordering (despite them saying they were in stock at the time) they cancelled
both times took well over a month to get a refund, even though it staed they didn't take money till dispatch, the second order was actually charged after they cancelled it!
Customer service never pick the phone up and it took ages to get a response to emails, on the rare occasion they bothered :x
#22
Well this thread gives my thoughts on them, only the name has changed apparently.

BBC report here

Woolworths' move into administration has forced fellow retailer Zavvi to stop taking new orders for CDs, DVDs and computer games via its website.
The move comes because Zavvi's main supplier of the items is Woolworths' unit Entertainment UK. Zavvi said it has also had to cancel existing orders.
Zavvi said affected customers would be sent an email notification, and it was working to find replacement suppliers.

Woolworths went into administration on Wednesday, 26 November.Deloitte, Woolworths' administrator, said there had been "substantial interest" in the firm.Zavvi was formed when Virgin sold its music stories in September 2007 in a management buy-out.

As well as its online operations, it has 100 stories across the UK which will still be open for business.

anyone know if whsmith, asdaonline and therefore the hut also use woolworths distribution as asda stores do and whsmith stores

if so avoid ordering anything online from these companies

if you have ordered and not received yet best order elsewhere
#25
Not sure why this is expired. Its not exactly a deal though. I do wonder what will happen to woolies orders though.

This could not of happened at a worse time in terms of crimbo.

i wouldnt recomend ordering online unless you have too.
and if you do only do so with a credit card
do not use a debit card as you will not get your money back if they go under
did also her yesterday DSG dixons group (CURRYS, PC WORLD AND DIXONS) are really struggling and are a shed full in the redand may not be around too much longer but i cannot confirm it

So it looks like they are affected. Thought they might be as most of the stuff on their site seems to be special order/oos.

S'funny, my order for Devil May Cry 4 (PS3) ordered Sunday was despatched yesterday.
#29
My brother got an email saying that he would be refunded for two DVD's but instead of cancelling the original pending transaction they started a new one and moved an additional £24 out of his account and now say they will refund it again. :?

So for an original purchase of £24 he ended up with £48 in pending transactions and had £24 taken just so they could 'refund' it (which may take a few days).

My brain hurts. :roll:

Why has this been expired? Are Zavvi now sending out orders and no longer relevant?

Or have the spam / expire trolls been at it again?
#31
what will happen to their stores????

It's just because the online service got it's stock from a Woolworths connected company that they have had to cancel orders.

I doubt the high-street shops will have any problems.
