GameStop closing down....

#1ShadowElite86Posted 2/3/2013 8:27:58 AM
well about 200 stores that is. That still leaves them with 6,450 stores so don't freak you GameStop lovers. I personally haven't set foot in one in at least 2-3 years after discovering how amazing ordering on Amazon, Newegg, etc is. I wonder if their downfall will continue.

Barely even newsworthy. Companies close down unprofitable stores all the time.

Think they'll sell the stores as new instead of used?

Especially if there are other stores nearby to pick up those sales or are seeing good profits from their website. This doesn't mean anything bad for them really.

Ugh... I'll get kind of annoyed if they close down the store here. Nearest one after that is a hour away, minimum. Amazon gets more of my business anyway, but that'd still chap my ass a little.
