As we told you last night, over 200 hundred Game Crazy stores are to be closed by the end of October. With closers always come some deep discounted sales! Except, in the case of Game Crazy, the sales might not be that great. The locations that are closing down are going to be redistributing their major products such as consoles, first party accessories and a “majority” of games released this year to other stores still open. Sources close to Joystiq have said that the closing stores won’t have much in stock when the sale starts.
10/3-10/11: 30% off everything in the store
10/12-10/18: 50% off everything in the store
10/19-Closing: 80% off everything in the store
Joystiq is on a mission to find out on a full list of the closing stores and to find out what’s happening with people that have pre-orders with these stores. It doesn’t help that Game Crazy isn’t saying anything on the matter.
Some of us will be hitting up our local Game Crazys to see what's up too. If any of you go to a Game Crazy, let us know what you find out.
[Update: We've heard from one store that stores that are remaining open will be will be funnelling low-demand product through them, so they're treating this both as a liquidation of stores as well as holiday preparation.]
