Game stores shut down
ADMINISTRATORS announced yesterday that a computer game shop in Gloucester is to close.
The future of Game has been hanging in the balance since the firm called in administrators last week.
There were hopes that stores could be saved by the team brought in to rescue the ailing company.
But Price WaterhouseCooper announced yesterday that it would be closing 277 of its stores, with 2,104 employees losing their jobs.
It includes Game stores in King's Walk, in Gloucester, and the branch in Cheltenham.
The future of Gamestation stores in the county, including one in Eastgate Market, remains uncertain. They are owned by Game.
Amidst discussions over a package to save the firm, bosses admitted there was no equity value left in the group.
