Independent video game chain CHIPS has opened a new store in Leicestershire.
Based in Market Harborough, the new outlet sells software and hardware for all major consoles, as well as accessories, books, cards, merchandise and pre-owned.
The store is run by former accountant and local resident Andrew Colclough.
“I first looked at opening a CHIPS store in Market Harborough about five years ago but I just couldn’t find the right premises,” commented Colclough.
“I think the recession has bottomed out now and we should see a slow and steady recovery over the next 18 months or so.”
“I believe this is the first new store to open in the town for several months and I hope the local consumers feel we have a lot to offer."
