Zavvi.co.uk is the online entertainment store which recently changed over to new ownership following the collapse of the high street store Zavvi so what of the new online retail venture? Zavvi is a well designed and simple to navigate website that is one of the nicer looking online entertainment...

“Zavvi are back!”

published 28/02/2010

quite cheap, free delivery, easy to use

delivery a little slow

Zavvi.co.uk Review - Zavvi are back! Can you remember recently when Zavvi shut down all of its stores. Well they are back again but this time on the internet with cheap prices and free delivery! They sell loads of different things including games, music, DVD`s, blu-ray`s, books, clothes...

Satisfactory

very cheap, good range

unreliable, poor communication

I recently ordered 2 items from the site and my friend did the same (following my initial recommendation). In Short If price is more important to you than speed of delivery then Zavvi may be worth a try. If you're in a hurry or ordering a a birthday present I think it's probably worth a miss...

Good

Fairly well-stocked, easy to navigate

No gimmick that sets it above its competitors

Zavvia was the company that bought out Virgin Megastores and then disappeared from the High Street last year when the credit crunch put paid to Woolworths. Zavvi used the same supplier, and without stock the store folded. Zavvi have now returned on-line and have a fairly decent website. The store...

Zavvi took over from Virgin Megastores after Branson decided it was time to get out of the high street cd/dvd game, but only lasted a year or two before shutting up shop entirely and retreating into the online shopping market with its much lower overheads. Essentially Zavvi's website is identical...

Free delivery, simple layout, good prices

Items get delivered seperatley

I shop at zavvi quite frequently for the latest dvds and games as their prices tend to be the best compared to other retailers such as HMV, Play, Game etc... Even better when used with a voucher code too, there's always lots of different featured on voucher site and Quidco. Definitely worth...

Price, Returns, Customer Service

I bought the wrong product!

I bought the wrong game from Zavvi.com recently - I wanted the latest Assassin's Creed game and bought the previous one by mistake. The game arrived really quickly and as soon as I realised it was the wrong one, I rang zavvi's customer services. They were really helpful and told me how to return...

Just ordered for the first time from Zavvi.com and have to say I'm very pleased with the site! I was a little wary at first because I'd found some not so great reviews through Google, some were saying delivery took up to a month, they weren't receiving notification of out of stock items for weeks...

NONE I'VE NOT EVEN RECEIVED IT!!

WORST ONLINE EXP EVER!!

I've only rated a 1 as it wouldn't let me do a zero!! this is the worst online shopping experience I've ever had. Ordered a game which was shown as in stock over 2 weeks ago - I would not have ordered it if I had read the small print that though it says it's in stock it may not be as an order...

You don't get your stuff and no money back!

I did not receive the games I bought! I contacted the support but they won't help me. Don't buy anything from Zavvi even if you had a positive experience by them before that is no guaranty. I have ordered things from Zavvi and even if the delivery was very slow I got my stuff. But now I didn't...

Ordered 3 games at the same time. Before any were dispatched I decided to cancel one because I had accidentally ordered elsewhere. Pressed cancel and after a day's wait I get a message saying it is too late to cancel even thought it has not been dispatched yet - what the heck? I then sent them a...

Cheap prices

No delivery, no compensation, no refund

I usually don't write reviews - good or bad. But Zavvi is by far the worst online-shop I have encountered! Placed an order of 4 items on Dec 3. Apparently the items were despatched very fast between Dec 4 and Dec 7. Two items were received in Australia by Dec 20 and 21 respectively. Unfortunately...

Cheap

Bad customer services

Zavvi took all the virgin megastores over, and were using the same supliers as woolworths. Using only one supplier may not be the best idea for any busines. As a result woolworths and Zavvi both disapeared from our High Street, never likely to be seen again. In 2009, zavvi.com is relaunched...

Don't send the item

Ordered this from Zavvi on 31/10/10 with an apparent despatch time of 24 hours. Several emails and phone calls later I finally got an email saying it had been despatched on 9/11/10, a full 9 days later! As of todays date 16/11/10 I still haven't received the game and doubt that I ever will...

Sometimes slow on restocking

I've ordered from zavvi several times, and aside from one minor problem, the service has been great, the prices reasonable, and sales sometimes great. The only problem I had was a game that had run out of stock, and it took zavvi almost three months to restock and me to get the game. The case was...
