Det går nok ikke så godt for GameStop som man kunne forvente. Det forlyder nemlig de skal lukke et større antal af deres butikker.

Gameindustry har taget en snak med GameStop “pengebossen” James Bell , og han har meldt følgende ud:

While that is an impressive statistic, we have a clear opportunity to improve our overall profitability by de-densifying our chain,” he said. “That work is well underway. We are on track to close between 180 and 200 underperforming stores globally by the end of this fiscal year. And while these closures were more opportunistic, we are applying a more definitive, analytic approach, including profit levels and sales transferability, that we expect will yield a much larger tranche of closures over the coming 12 to 24 months.

Der forsikres at de fleste butikker stadig tjener godt, men er for at forstærke butikkens finanser i fremtiden.

Så som det ser ud nu skal GameStop lukke mellen 180 og 200 butikker verdenen over de næste 2 år. Om det rammer Danmark vides ikke endnu.
