HMV has spoken of its respect for specialist GAME in a new interview with MCV.
The firm's commercial manager for games Jonathan Hayes said that both HMV and GAME were united in offering something that kept consumers away from online retailers – such as Play and Amazon – and supermarkets.
Hayes told MCV:
I respect GAME for the depth of their specialist offer on the High Street.
They have faced very similar challenges to that of HMV – being a specialist High Street retailer under threat from the rise of the supermarkets and online retailers such as Amazon and Play.
HMV and GAME have continued to grow their businesses even with these threats which shows the strength of both brands and the quality of the staff employed in the stores.”
