Fopp still missing from London?

The new, HMV-owned Fopp microchain is set to reopen at the end of the week - but, apparently, without a branch in London. The purchase of the Covent Garden store isn't running as smoothly as those of the other five stores HMV has taken control of, so London is going to have to wait.

A seventh Fopp, in Byres Road, Glasgow, has been added to the HMV portfolio; this, too, will reopen later.
