Up to 6,000 jobs at risk at troubled Game

Nearly 6,000 staff at Game Group are facing an uncertain future after the struggling video games retailer collapsed into administration.

Professional services firm PwC has been appointed administrator to the UK operations of Game Group, which has 609 stores under the names Game and Gamestation.

The chain, which employs 385 staff at its headquarters in Basingstoke, Hampshire, and around 5,100 in its stores, has suffered dire trading in recent months, while some suppliers refused to stock the retailer as its worsening finances came under increased scrutiny.
