GameStop announces they are closing in Ireland


GameStop Ireland

By Katy Thornton

It’s the end of an era, people.

Gamers everywhere will be gutted to learn that GameStop is officially leaving the Irish market.

The retailing giant took to its social media accounts to share the news with their followers, stating:

“We are disappointed to announce that GameStop Ireland will be closing.

But while we’re here, we’ve got a range of discounts across hundreds of items. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!”

GameStop has already launched its closing sale both in-store and online.

In March, GameStop announced that they would be ceasing many of their services, including the sale of gift cards; trade-ins and purchases of used devices and accessories; GameStop Pro Loyalty services; game protection; and pre-orders of some products.

Lovin has reached out to GameStop for further information on when exactly it will be closing its Irish stores.

GameStop currently has over 35 outlets across Ireland, with several stores in Dublin, Cork and Limerick.
