been called to run DVD, computer games and CD distributor

AIM-listed
Peterborough-based company was placed in administration yestereday (22 August).

ChoicesUK employs over 600 full-time and 1,100 part-time staff across its
distribution businesses and within its 162 stores throughout the UK.

Nick Cropper said: ‘ChoicesUK, like much of the UK packaged entertainment
sector, has suffered from price deflation in the market, driven by reduced
consumer rental activity, piracy and technological advances.

He said the priority was to continue to trade the businesses and try and save
the business.
