I know they just bought out EB Games...we should sadly be seeing lots of empty spots in malls and shopping centers where both stores operate.angry

I love GAmestop as it has used Dvds, it has some action figures.

They are cropping up in strip malls. Like recently one in Gilford in the Wal-mart Plaza opened and last year one opened in the Upper Valley Plaza in West Lebanon.

Both stores are in the Emerald Mall in North Attleboro Mass and are doing very well. Oddly enough, there is another Gamestop across the street which was FuncoLand.

Like the recent "fye" rebrand (phasing Strawberries, SunCoast, Record Town, Saturday Matinee, Media Play) along with the infamous and somewhat critcized Federated rebrand into Macy's & Bloomingdales, GameStop has joined that bandwagon.

They are slowly phasing out existing EBGames/Electronics Boutique and EBX (once sought to be EB's smaller stores located in malls like parent EB stores) stores as well as their own former affiliated stores Babbages (which is officially a goner now), Software Etc. It's getting ridiculous all these companies; now you can have as much as two or three GameStops and FYEs polluting your local malls with their overpriced junk. All these places are really just making malls so much more uniform and cookie cutter.

I'm a long time EB customer, always liked them better than Babbages/Software Etc before they themselves rebranded as GameStop. Their stores weren't that nice but now they pollute their own stores wiith overstocks of overpriced used games and other junk they can't move (like action figures, PC games without boxes, etc.).

GameStop is a specialty store found mainly inside shopping malls. They have a great selection of video games.

I hate Gamestop. They killed Funcoland.
In the days of Electronics Boutique (before EB Games) I also liked the store Babbages, they were a similar chain in the 90's

We had two stores originally. One Software, etc... and an EB Games. Both became GameStop in 2006. Then we got a third Gamestop in 2008.

Further back in the day, I used to go to Babbages in Ohio. It also became GameStop the same year I believe.

I guess there is no other game store left.

The only other store that is exclusively games is Gamecrazy but I don't count them since they are usually attached or are an actual part of Hollywood video.

There is a really great, independently owned game store near me called ''Bandit Video Games'' in Turnersville, NJ. I don't think it's a chain store though.

By the way, there was already a GameStop thread back on the 6th or 7th page of this board, which was made in 2005. I guess this should be merged with it.

There are 4 Game Stops in Watebury, CT - 2 in The Brass Mill Mall. One on Route 69 in Shoprite Plaza and one across the street in Walmart Plaza.

We have 2 Gamestops in Bristol. One in The Annex Plaza next to Blockbuster. The other in The Stop & Shop Plaza (formerly EB Games). The nearest Software Etc is in the Meriden Square Mall 2nd Floor near Sears.

I've seen a Gamestop still called EB at Westfield Montgomery Shopping Mall in Bethesda, MD.

I visited a mall in New Jersey a couple months ago that had both a Gamestop and an EB still open and operating in the same building, which seemed a bit odd. Here in Bangor, we've got a EB-turned-Gamestop in the Bangor Mall as well as a standalone Gamestop in a power center on the other side of Stillwater Avenue. Both situations seem a bit redundant to me...

3 GameStops operating in the same mall, on the same level here.  Crystal Mall, Waterford, CT.  lol.
