Brexit: Everything you need to know
Following the UK leaving the EU from January 1st 2021, Zavvi would like to reassure all our customers that there will be no change to your shopping experience.
Zavvi is committed to making sure you have all the information you need and we have provided the FAQs below to answer any questions you may have.
As always, if you have any additional questions then please contact our Customer Service team who will be happy to help.
Zavvi can confirm that your shopping experience will not be impacted, and you will be able to continue to place orders as usual.
For customers located in the EU, most of our products will ship from our distribution centre within the EU and therefore ordering with us will continue as normal.
For any products shipping from the UK to addresses in the EU, tax and duties will be settled on your behalf with our courier, so there is no cost to you. If for any reason you are charged, please get in touch with customer service so we can investigate and get this resolved for you.
We have made the necessary changes to ensure your shopping experience is not impacted, meaning delivery timeframes will remain unaffected.
Once you have selected your products, please refer to the checkout for delivery timescales specific to your shipping address.
As some customers may have experienced in the past, we have multiple dispatch locations across the globe to enable us to provide you with the best experience possible. The majority of orders will be fulfilled from within the EU, but some products will be sent from the UK.
We have made all necessary changes to ensure any products sent from the UK to EU addresses are delivered as normal with no impact to you.
No, all returns from European countries will go back to our distribution centre located within the EU.
According to the World Health Organisation (“WHO”), the chances of contracting COVID-19 from an inanimate object are very low. However, Zavvi is constantly monitoring the situation (and any official advice issued in connection with the same) and Zavvi is taking sensible measures to protect customers and staff. We suggest you review the WHO website for latest advice in this regard.
Specifically, in respect of the threat of COVID-19, additional measures implemented by Zavvi currently include the following:
- All Zavvi employees have received additional education and training on hand hygiene and we have deployed additional hand sanitisers throughout all workplaces.
- We are adhering to UK Government guidelines and supporting employees who need to self-isolate for 7 days, should they have any concerns or show flu-like symptoms, have a high temperature or a persistent cough
- In addition, we are taking extra precautions on reducing any touch and transmission points throughout all Zavvi premises and workplaces.
In response to COVID-19, all our carriers are taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of their drivers and our customers.
Please be assured that all our carriers are following the advice and guidelines from the government and that the safety of everyone is our priority.
There is currently no impact to our delivery services at this stage, however we encourage all customers to use your home address for delivery.
Moving forward all carriers will operate a contact free delivery service which means that you won’t be required to sign for any parcel that’s delivered.
You can see all carrier guidelines and measures upon visiting the nominated carrier website, emails will be provided upon dispatch to confirm delivery information.
We hope that you understand and appreciate the measures that have been implemented are to protect you and ensure we can continue operate as normal.
The safety and wellbeing of both colleagues and customers is our absolute priority. Zavvi has consistently taken early and swift actions to ensure this. This includes imposing a ban on both travel and external meetings across the entire 7,000 workforce since mid-Jan this year. Zavvi has also been at the forefront of implementing work for home policies, with 90% of our office based colleagues working from home ahead of recent Government requests for people to work from home where at all possible.
We also have strict safeguarding measures in place across each of manufacturing and distribution sites across the globe, which go far beyond any Government guidelines. This is to ensure our teams can work safely while maintain social distancing at all times. Other measures include providing our manufacturing and distribution colleagues with ready-to-cook ingredient meal packs at the end of each shift, sufficient to feed a family of four. These are provided free of charge and aimed at reducing the needs of our staff to visit supermarkets, increasing their own safety while reducing the strain on supermarkets to help the more vulnerable in our local regions.
We are introducing world-leading measures to monitor and safeguard the health of all colleagues working in our fulfilment centres. In addition to temperature checks and social distancing measures across all sites, we will be installing thermal imagery technology throughout our Warrington premises, with plans to deploy globally. This innovative equipment will allow us to offer early detection of elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever,via non-invasive and non-intrusive technology. We don’t believe any other company has taken this measure.

Given the fast pace at which THG has grown and advanced over the years and the successes we’ve had to date, we identified that the current Group legal entity structure does not in some cases align with the business divisions and brands we offer today.We have therefore taken the opportunity to re-organise the Group’s legal structure so that our companies do align with our business divisions and brands and support THG’s long term growth strategy. In order to re-organise, we had to make sure that data (which included data relating to you as one of our customers) was legally transferred to the new entities. Although this does not impact you in any material way, we wanted to let you know about this change.
Before the re-org:
In most cases the controller in respect of your data will have been The Hut.com Limited. In some instances, the controller may have been a specific entity within THG.
After the re-org:
The new controller are the newly incorporated legal entity:
This is due to an internal re-organisation and does not affect you in any material way. We are just being transparent about it. Some business units have now been incorporated into new legal entities within the THG group and the corresponding databases have been transferred to them.This means that legal responsibility for handling your data or for responding to your data protection requests now rests with the new entity named in the email. However, these new entities remain within the THG group and all provide the same consistent level of protection.
The email you received was not a marketing email. It was an important announcement about a change of legal owner in relation to databases in which you are included. When you opt out of receiving marketing emails, we need to keep you on the database so that we know not to send you marketing communications. You do, of course, also have the right to have your data deleted from the database entirely in which case please use the link you see at the bottom of the email.
You will continue to be able to exercise your data protection rights, submit complaints or queries about how your data is processed or get in touch with our Data Protection Officer by contacting us via the message centre in your customer account or by using one of our various contact options, which can be found by vising our help centre.
