Sevenoaks in Lincoln has closed. Is this a one off or are other branches closing?
I would suspect that they found the current trading conditions too tough to carry on.
Sevenoaks is a franchise business, so the success or failure of each individual Sevenoaks branch is down to the business owner running each shop - I doubt Sevenoaks HQ are keen to bank roll any of their franchisees who find themselves in difficulty.

I am really sad to hear this they where really helpful and gave great customer service.
Really good prices locally too.
There has been some merging with Audio T. Locally, I've seen the Plymouth-based Sevonoaks branch has been consolidated into Exeter.
Full story here:-
It's tough out there!
Hi-Fi: Krell KAV-300cd, Michell TecnoDec/RB250/Grado Prestige Black1, KAV-300i amp, Transparent balanced interconnects and bi-wire to Sonus faber Concerto grand piano speakers, Nakamichi ZX-7 cassette deck, Logitech Squeezebox Touch, Hitachi FT-5500 and Sony S570ES tuners, BCD Engineering stand, RA Powerlink, Chord powerchord, Grado SR60i cans.
AV: Sony Bravia KDL-32EX503 telly, BDP-S370 player with QED HDMI. Currently unused: Denon AVR-1705, DVD-1710, KEF KHT1005.2
They closed a couple of months ago. The Lincoln branch was a franchise, and from what I've heard, there may be a few more going, as a lot of the 10 year franchisee contracts initially signed are coming to an end around now.
