UK retail gaint GAME has confirmed today that they are planning to cut their UK store count by closing 85 of their stores. The move from the retailer is said to be an effort to be a cost cutting measure.
Peter Lewis Chairman GAME said "We remain the clear market leader in the UK, with 635 stores across two brands. We will continue to manage our store portfolio with strict retail disciplines,"
"By Christmas 2013 we expect the UK store portfolio to have been reduced to about 550 stores as we reduce store over-lap and drive for greater cost efficiency."
