Administrator PwC has confirmed that it’s closed today 277 GAME/Gamestation stores today throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.
GAME Group previously had 609 stores in the UK and Northern Ireland, so this represents a large cut. Currently it’s possible that even more stores will be closed, although this depends on whether a buyer can be found quickly.
Sadly, the cuts so far have resulted in 2,104 GAME employees losing their jobs, which amounts to 40 per cent of its UK workforce.
MCV’s has a list of the stores closed so far.
Once again we wish those who have lost their jobs good luck for the future, in what is a sad time both for the UK and the Games Industry.
