Head Entertainment to close?

Head Entertainment in Bluewater will close today, with rumours suggesting the chain is on the verge of collapse.

The Bluewater branch is currently selling off all stock at discounted prices, including Xbox 360’s for under 50.

This is the second Head store to close, with HMV replacing the firm’s outlet in the Manchester Arndale Centre. And rumours are circulating that Head in Sheffield Meadowhall could be the next shop to go.

Head Entertainment was made up of nine former Zavvi stores before the closures, and is run by former Zavvi MD Simon Douglas and partner Les Whitfield.

The chain originally employed 160 staff, and sold mostly old Zavvi stock.
