I now have confirmation that I can announce ... for all those worried about future packaging from Zavvi. My Play contact has been working with zavvi as well on this mission for better packaging. Between the 3 of us and the future comments from this community after its in place I'm sure it will be go over well.

Anyone know zavvis policy on items that go on sale the day after you buy them? I bought the Arrow Robin hood yesterday for £40 and just got an email saying its sale for £25. So £22.50 with discount code. I mean what a kick in the teeth lol.

The Hut Group who owns Zavvi is in real trouble, with a few very recent reports have indicated with Zavvi themselves noted as potentially loss making, i'll link a few news articles stating the issues; but here is an interesting quote from one of the articles.

"It comes two months after the latest profit warning by THG, which also launched a strategic review into loss-making parts of its OnDemand division, which includes websites such as Zavvi and Pop In A Box, as it seeks to focus further on beauty and nutrition." - take that as you will.

Also it has just been announced today (17th April 2023) that a US buyout company Apollo has put in a bid to buy the entire THG group.

My feeling is that if Zavvi is really loss making, coupled with the loss of Disney exclusives's a sign it's losing it's grip, and the next year will be interesting to watch....

Just had this message today...

We have recently stopped shipping to international countries.

We are working on some exciting new changes and we will update you as soon as we resume shipping internationally.
