Location: 1 Earlham Street, WC2H 9LL

Description: Saved from closure by hmv, the stores have now been re-opened, so Fopp's identity and 25-year history are being preserved.

From its origins as a one-man stall in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1981, it expanded to a chain of over 100 branches throughout the country in 2007. With the demise of Music Zone, Fopp became the third largest specialist music retailer in the UK in terms of store numbers (after HMV and Virgin Megastores).

Shortly after the takeover of rival chain Music Zone, Fopp went into administration in June 2007, resulting in the closure of many of its stores. Eight stores survived and are operating under the Fopp brand as an independent part of the HMV Group.

The name 'Fopp' comes from the title of a song by the Ohio Players on their 1975 album Honey.
