EB Games closing a bunch of stores, discounting stock 20-60% off

Customers of various EB Games stores have been receiving emails tonight informing them that their local store will be closing. We’ve had reports from multiple people, from multiple states with various closing dates.

The email states that the store will be closing and there will be 20% to 60% off stock, it doesn’t mention what stock is what per cent off. Different stores also have different closing dates.

To check if your store is affected, use the store locator on the EB Games website. If it’s been removed it should be closing. Here’s the list we have so far, there may be others;

    Email I got says Inverell. Why the flying frick it says that all of the other stores you have listed in NSW are close to me, I don’t know.

    I’m surprised the City Cross store has been for around as long as it has.
    It’s a small site on the second floor of a CBD building that has 99% of its customers stay on the ground floor, 100m from Its main CBD store.

      Hey Vook, “Hallet Cove” is actually spelt “Hallett Cove”. A common mistake it seems, I’m seeing it all over the place…

      I hope all staff at the stores will continue to be employed somewhere. It seems Amazon and other stores are making an impact, maybe EB needs to change their pricing policies?

    Dandenong is closing in VIC? Not sure if it’s in the main shopping centre or not, but surprised to see it closing. Unless the centre is renovating majorly (it needs it) and a number of stores are relocating/closing….

    It *might* be worth making a trip to Blacktown, but I doubt that they would have anything of note. I imagine that most non-clearance items would have been shipped off to nearby stores. This is EB we’re talking about, after all.

    And most of their games won’t be shrink wrapped, and are likely to have been poked and prodded by countless other customers, or worse, returned by a customer and resold as “new”.

    Wouldn’t bother. All the hardware and good games appear to have been removed from the stores before they announced the closure. Slim pickings from the crap that is left.
