Zhivago in Galway to close

It’s just getting silly now!  From the Irish Times 17/01/11

The Zhivago chain of music stores in Galway confirmed today it has gone into voluntary liquidation. Up to 15 jobs are to be lost as a result of the move. Sound City Galway Limited, the company behind Zhivago, said the popularity of online music sales had impacted on business.

High street music shops have found it increasingly difficult to compete with online stores and last year, the much-loved Road Records in Dublin closed its doors for good after struggling to keep trading. Zhivago’s Shop Street store closed last week but the firm’s outlet in the Galway Shopping Centre is to continue, albeit under a new name.
