Abstract:
This case is a very good illustration of what competition does to even an established company. While Case A deeply dwells on the effectiveness of Fopp's target market selection and its positioning strategy thereafter, Case B helps discuss how valid was Fopp's decision to go out of business. This case is an antithesis to the analysis carried out in Case A. While Case A stimulates discussion on Fopp's positioning to reach a particular community, Case B helps in critically examining the reasons for the music chain's closure. Students are also encouraged to choose among the three available exit options.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To analyse the reasons for Fopp's business model failure
  • To debate and evaluate the surviving options available for Fopp.
