Gamestop (EB Games, formerly Babbage s) is a company specializing in the distribution of video games and electronic equipment. The company s headquarters is located in Grapevine, Texas. In 2016, the company had 7,117 outlets around the world.
Many degrees for the retail chain.
Once upon a time, Gamestop was the Gaming Empire of America. The company took over several others and opened an absurd number of shops across the country. Now, however, stationary businesses are declining, and the former retailer Juggernaut has received bad news, as the stocks and sales have fallen for several quarters. Now they close dozens of shops across the country.
You can view the complete list of shops in the GSClosing blog, a non-connected blog that created lists for closing stores. The shops will close shortly and some report enormous storage sales in both video games and consoles for those who are random near one of the shops that are closed.
It is unfortunate for the many employees who will lose their workplace, but it was an inevitable result, taking into account both the decline of retail and excessively aggressive expansion that Gamestop has passed through in the last decade. While the chain will undoubtedly survive through this holiday season for the next console generation, it is very possible that it will not take a long time.
