GameStop Could Be Closing All Of Its Stores In Spain

gamestop_spain_letter

Letters have apparently been sent out to GameStop employees in Spain telling them that their stores are closing. The company says that they will try and transfer some stores to another retailer in an effort to help the workers retain their jobs. Here’s what the letter says in English.

To all the workers,

Gamestop has taken the hard decision of leaving the spanish market.

After nine years supporting and investing in Spain in order to build a profitable business and despite all of your efforts, we couldn’t make it.

Right now we are working on the posibility of transfering a group of stores to another retailer, thereby achieving that the jobs of the employees of this shops can be kept.

In the next days you’ll recieve more information on the process, and I ask you that, within the delicate situation this assumes, among all get that the control of the business and the product be an added value to use in the negotiation of the trespassing of some of your stores.

I attach the formal communication letter of the start of the process, and I’m yours to clear up your doubts.

Regards,

Antonio Gonzalez
Manager Director
Gamespot Iberia.
