Eventually got a day off (bah humbug) and had a look at the 'real' shops (as opposed to online) and saw a note in Zaavi's door saying they wont accept gift vouchers.
WHAT A BUNCH OF *****!!!!
Despite this rant, I dont actually have any zavvi vouchers, I was lucky and my sis gave me some HMV ones instead- not through any clever planning, just luck. But many people will have bought gift cards for loved ones, kids etc, only to find out that the administrators, on XMAS EVE! have put the store into administration and all the vouchers are useless.
This has got to be taking mercenary to a new degree don't you think. There was no hint that zavvi were going to go under (no more so than anyone else that is - Ive unloaded my HMV vouchers already, just in case!) and they let people go on buying vouchers right up to christmas. They must have known what they were doing surely.
I think they have to get the scrooge award for 2008. What a bunch of evil gits.
