277 GAME and Gamestation stores close, 40% of workforce axed

Administrator PwC has today closed the doors on 277 of The GAME Group’s 609 UK and Ireland stores, MCV understands.

The result is that by the end of the day around 2,104 GAME employees will have lost their jobs – 40 per cent of its UK workforce.

15 of these jobs have been lost from its Basingstoke head office with the rest coming from its stores.

MCV’s list of closed stores is still being updated and can be found here.

Although all remaining stores are safe for the time being, their survival depends on the timely discovery of a willing investor. If a buyer is not found in the near future further store closures will likely be announced.
