UK retailer GAME has planned to open up 18 new stores across the UK by the end of July – only a year since their troubled finances forced them to close 227 stores. The news comes after the company paid its backing investment firm OpCapita £3.2 miliion in interest from its first four months under the new ownership.
According to The Telegraph, though, GAME still owes £103 million to OpCapita, but are paying it back above the base rate at 7.5 per cent. If sales continue to go soundly for GAME, they should be able to pay off the whole sum by April 2017. GAME, which has over 300 stores across the UK, said their outlook was ‘positive’ for the future.
