Game stores safe – for now

Two King’s Lynn games shops have been saved from closure. GAME in the High Street and Gamestation in Norfolk Street will continue trading, at least for the time being.

The news comes as administrator PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) closed the doors on 277 of The GAME Group’s 609 UK and Ireland stores on Monday. The result was that by the end of the day around 2,104 GAME employees learned they had lost their jobs – 40 per cent of its UK workforce.

Although the King’s Lynn stores are safe for the time being, their survival depends on the timely discovery of a willing investor, for parent company GAME Group. If a buyer is not found in the near future further store closures will likely be announced.

Two GAME stores in Norwich, located at St Stephens Street and Castle Mall Shopping Centre, were amongst the other stores that learned they were closing.

The websites for GAME and Gamestation are currently offline, with GAME’s claiming it is ‘down for maintenance’. The website acknowledges the company is currently in administration but claims that ‘We are currently reviewing and processing orders placed on this website’. The site also says, ‘we hope to be back up and running very soon.’

The Gamestation website has a similar message and promises ‘We’ll be right back!’ and adds ‘We are sorry for any inconvenience, but hope you enjoy the extra gaming time!’
