Two-thirds of Music Zone stores sold by Deloitte

Deloitte, the administrator for retailer
Music Zone, has sold 67 of the
company’s 100 stores to competitor Fopp.

The cost of the sale was not disclosed.

Music Zone went into administration in early January after struggling against
competition from the internet and supermarkets.

On 25 January, Deloitte said a buyer hadn’t been found and the company would
close its shops and lay off its 800 staff.

‘This represents a much better outcome for creditors and other stakeholders
than a piece-meal disposal,’ said
, a partner at Deloitte.
