Lots of closes for the retailer chain.
Once upon a time, GameStop was the gaming empire of America. The company absorbed several others and opened an absurd amount of stores thorough out the country. Now, though, brick and mortar stores are on the decline and the once retailer juggernaut has seen bad news as stocks and sales have tumbled for multiple quarters. Now, they are closing dozens of stores across the country.
You can see the full list of stores through the GSclosing blog, an unaffiliated blog that’s been compiling lists of store closing. The stores will close soon and some are reporting huge clearance sales on both video games and consoles for those who happen to be close to one of the stores being closed.
It’s unfortunate for the many employees who will lose their jobs, but it was an inevitable outcome considering both the decline of retail as well as the overly aggressive expansion GameStop went through over the last decade. While the chain will undoubtedly survive through this holiday season for the next console generation, it’s very well possible it won’t be around much longer.
