GAME Over: Group Enters Administration Officially, CEO Resigns and Stores Begin Closing

Today marks the end of an era for the GAME Group as we know it, with no buyer in sight and the administrators now officially appointed.

PWC are the administrators that have been brought in to do the job, after the retail group, comprising of GAME and Gamestation stores, removed itself from the London Stock Exchange last week, entering administration in the process.

GAME CEO Ian Shepherd resigned from his position with the Group today, with the administrators taking over his role with immediate effect.

The retail group is now winding down to save on costs, with the game.co.uk website now taken offline and stores beginning to close. Of the 609 GAME and Gamestation stores across the UK, it has been estimated that around 300 will close immediately. All stores across Ireland have been closed today, and the list below shows the latest GAME and Gamestation stores to close their doors. Two of Gadget Helpline’s local stores – Bath and Bristol Cabots Circus – have both gone today, and suffice to say we’re pretty sad to see them go.

For the remainder of the stores, the company has stopped accepting gift vouchers and GAME Reward Points. Refunds and Exchanges have also been stopped for products purchased before or after the administration process.
