Location revealed for Nuneaton’s new GAME store

Mason Moore and Vaughan Moore | 15 June 2020

British video-game retailer, GAME, shall be stepping foot into Nuneaton’s most recognisable indoor shopping complex, the Ropewalk Shopping Centre.

The video-game giant had a store located in Queens Road for a number of years, before announcing their sudden closure earlier this year, due to “circumstances beyond their control”.

The last day the store served its loyal gamers was on Saturday 15 February.

However, it was later revealed by GAME’s local and official Twitter account for the Nuneaton area, that they were in the process of returning to the town centre in a brand-new undisclosed retail unit.

Just a month later, in March, the video-game and tech retailer posted a tweet which confirmed their intentions to operate from their newly-secured space on 1 April with “all being well”.

Due to the ongoing pandemic forcing non-essential businesses to temporarily halt trading, these plans were unable to go ahead.

Today, the Hinckley Free Press have learnt that GAME’s “shiny new store” that they teased on Twitter turned out to be that of the former menswear store known as Ministry of Design.

When GAME were approached for comment, they were unavailable at the time of publication.
