Good news at last for GAME

Compared with the same period last year, like-for-like sales were also up by 10.1 per cent for the first 22 weeks to July 1st 2006.

While UK and Ireland sales increased 13.6 per cent, GAME’s push into Europe saw the greatest improvement, with total sales up by a huge 49.7 per cent.

“I am pleased to report that we are performing in line with our expectations for the first half of the year,” said GAME chairman Peter Lewis. “Looking forward, the planned launch of the Sony PS3 and the Nintendo Wii in the run up to the key Christmas trading season will benefit our second half as will our Europe-wide store opening programme which is on track for 60 to 70 new stores this year. This will bring our portfolio to nearly 800 stores.”
