Independent retail continues its push into the online space, as GameXchange and Gameseek reveal their new websites.
GameXchange is a High Street chain with six stores nationwide, and was nominated as one of the Top 20 indies in MCV last month.
The chain is owned by Richard Moggridge and Andy Parkes, and the new site is found at GameXchange.co.uk.
“This website is years in the making,” said Moggridge.
“We've always had in mind exactly what we wanted and we now feel we have a fun, informative and easy to use site run by our experienced online team, who have been selling through Amazon and Play for six years.
“To boost our web offering we will always be looking for marketing deals and cross promotional opportunities.”
MCV Award nominee Gameseek has also updated its site, with new features including extra categories, the ability to track games, new search options, gift vouchers and a PC download service with Metaboli.
“Gameseek has been due a facelift for sometime; it was designed for the older monitors and since most people have upgraded to larger screens we wanted to take advantage of the extra space,” explained Gameseek boss Stephen Staley.
“It is a big improvement and we will be adding more features throughout 2009. Sales have increased immediately, so we’re very happy with the response.
“We continue to listen to our customers’ demands and endeavour to attract more new customers.”
