Is something happening to Fopp/HMV? I've been in recently twice and there was like 5 new releases they didn't have which are definitely out now. Like Arrow, Second Run, 88 Films stuff that they usually get. Have some labels said theyre not really benefitting from stores anymore. Feels ominous to me.

I should have mentioned I've heard about the many store closures but it seems like there might be extra troubles when they seem to not be getting some new releases you could normally rely on.

The store closures are due to massive financial troubles. Lack of money, credit and staff can affect a shop's ability to order new stock.

They weren't getting any new stock while they were between owners. And now I think their new owner is generally more invested in vinyl than blu-ray or DVD or CD. Shame they never seem to have sales on Indicator product, or Eureka/MOC.

Westfield branch of HMV has been left exactly as it was when it closed the day before HMV went into administration. All the stock is still sitting there on the shop floor and there are screens still on at the back, some playing videos. So weird. It’s possible the new owners are negotiating with the landlord so they can reopen the branch at some point, but dudes: mind that electricity bill.

I walked past the Oxford Street HMV yesterday, no stock in the shop.

HMV Westfield has reopened as of today.

There's still a wall of Indicator but they seem to be completely finished with Eureka. Which is a shame because I think Eureka are doing all the best stuff these days.
