For those who have a Game or a Gamestation in their town, be warned as it may be one of the 85 set to close between now and 2013.
MCV reports that it is planned to reduce to just 550 stores in order to cut costs. Destructoid believe this may be due to there being so many of these stores around the UK, that there’s just no need to keep them all open. At the same time, however, it may also cause 100’s of employee’s to lose their jobs, and those in small, rural areas to try the next town.
Peter Lewis said: “We remain the clear market leader in the UK, with 635 stores across two brands. We will continue to manage our store portfolio with strict retail disciplines.”
In this year alone, 15 stores and 27 concessions have already closed.
