Fopp (Covent Garden) *

Budget-conscious haven for DVDs, CDs and more
Originally a Glasgow music shop, from 1981, Fopp expanded well beyond its Scottish borders in the years leading up to 2007, when it ran into trouble too convoluted to detail here, resulting in its takeover/salvage by music giant HMV. With eight thriving UK-wide locations as of 2014, Fopp remains a friendly music-and-movie enterprise with integrity and delectably discounted prices.
