35 High Street Stores To Close
GAME's inevitable restructuring is finally happening, big-style. In an effort to combat an extremely worrying financial situation and reduce overheads, the beleaguered retailer has confirmed that Gameplay.co.uk will close on March 1st, redirecting customers to Gamestation instead.
"So that all of our customers can enjoy the benefits of the new online platform that we launched last year, Gameplay customers will be served through Gamestation.co.uk from March 1st 2012, including customer support for their purchase."
"All new orders will be directed through gamestation.co.uk from that date. We're talking to our customers who access our online community through Gameplay about this today, and look forward to welcoming them to the growing community at gamestation.co.uk." - Game Spokesperson to MCV
35 high street stores will also be closed, which is the first step in a plan to reduce 610 stores down to 550 by 2013. We wish the best of luck to all those affected.
