Some enjoy GameStop's new merch-oriented business model, but others don't. Unfortunately, it's not going anywhere.
Well, the merch is certainly making them money.
We will see I guess. If gamestop goes under, a lot of people will be without a job and I don't wish that for anyone. Hopefully Gamestop can survive and find a way to be more customer friendly. But the market will decide.
It's a Funko Pop Woodstock in there.
If they got outta gaming then they would just be called Stop
they could rename themselves Stop n Go or is that already taken hmm....
They'd just rebrand as think geek....considering they own that. It's an easy transition that will come. They make way more profit on that then they do games anyway.
Would be nice if they accepted Price Matches...
My local Gamestop finally turned into what they referred to as a 50/50 store. I was not impressed. Anyways, as long as they still sell physical copies of games I'll keep going there....I'm just not interested in most of the Spencers gear aside from maybe a few Destiny 2 items. They are the last place you can physically walk into and buy used old games from a while ago. Best buy,wal-mart,target..they don't have a ton of older used games. And no Disc Replay doesn't count because that store smells like farts and BO and I'm never going back there again. So basically if Gamestop goes under you will have to rely on Target, Best-buy, Wal-mart or some combo of other local stores for physical copies. The best part of Gamestop is I can walk in day one and get my physical copy and never have to worry that it isn't there. Nobody else is as reliable....as long as you pre-order In Store.
the days of (game) stores are over. please bother to go outside and take a look at your cities. physical game copies will go the same way down the drain as every other branch that sold stuff. the world went digital and there is nothing anyone can do to stop this. thank god.
Come to stopGame for everything non-gaming related.
In a digital world, physical gaming stores are a'll going to become history
