You are quite right to highlight the misery faced by many in the New Year, and I for one feel for each and every person who loses their job no matter what time of year.
But there is much sadness to come if my info is true and there are as many as 15 high street retailers who won't be around in February.
(Although to be fair I don't think we have 15 retailers in our high street now!)

Zavvi staff told they have gone into administration today.

Nice timing by the administrators, Happy Christmas to all their staff. They could have waited a week.

I was surprised when Zavvi leapt in where Virgin Megastores couldn't make it work, but from that piece it seems more an issue caused by the Woolies supply division collapsing.

JJb sports in eastbourne are having a massive sale at the moment, went to get my scouse mates kid a liverpool ball for xmas the other day and they didnt have any, asked a sales assistant if he could get hold of one and said that they were off down the same route as woolies and he was looking for another job.

Very sad as the other sports shops in this area are crap compared to them.

Such a shame about woolies though, places like addiscombe (where i grew up) and down this way Hailsham really do rely on a shop like woolies to keep the trade in the area. Rip Woolworth, thanks for the matchbox cars and pick n'mix.

I think all JJBs are gradually being taken over by Sports Direct, if they haven't all gone already?

Sad about Zavvi, but inevitable with their ridiculously overpriced goods - surely HMV cannot be doing too much better?

To recap, and consider the scale of this, the retail firms that have closed so far:
MFI
Pier
Rosebys
Woolworths
Zavvi

Understand Officers Club are seeking finance. Whittards pulled back from the brink by Private Equity. They were owned by Icelandic firm Baugur (spelling?) who also have stakes in Iceland, Hamleys, jewellery chain Goldsmiths, and high street fashion brands Karen Millen, Warehouse and Oasis. It also has a substantial share of department store House of Fraser.

Oh, just seen that Oficers Club, like Whittards, went into administration but was immediately sold on. (One thing about this crisis, am learning new things - pre-pack administration was a new one on me!)
