Game Crazy Closing Shop

While I don't like to admit it, I knew it was coming. Game Crazy is officially closing all remaining locations within the next month, with a liquidation sale starting in roughly 2 weeks. A post was found on Craigs List by the Store Director of a branch in Bend Oregon. Later confirmed on Kotaku that it was a legitimate post, followed by the Game Crazy website updated with a FAQ regarding store closures.

Game Crazy's parent company Movie Gallery Inc. filed for bankruptcy earlier this year and numerous locations along the East coast closed, leaving just a handful of stores open in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, one in North Dakota and one in Canada. Hollywood Video, under the same company, will also be closing it's doors in the upcoming month. Many stores are already discounting DVD's at ridiculous prices and anticipate to receive stock of new releases up until the stores close for good. So expect a lot of deep discounts. If you are in the upper West Coast, hunt out a Game Crazy and take advantage of what they have to offer. Many stores still have new releases in stock, so now would be a good time to buy what they have.
