The 200+ Game Crazy stores expected to close by the end of October will begin a liquidation sale, starting this weekend. Locations expected to shutter have received boxes and a list of items that are to be sent back for redistribution, which allegedly includes “all systems, major first party accessories (controllers, memory, etc).” The “majority” of games released within the last year will be also be sent out, “both new and used.” Several employees have commented that closing stores will likely be “pretty bare” by the time the sale starts.
The timetable for the liquidation, corroborated by several sources:
- 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
There doesn’t seem to be a consistent date for when the stores will close, but we haven’t heard of any location staying open beyond October 27. (via joystiq)
