GameStop Closing All Store Locations in Puerto Rico


Goodbye, physical games.

If you live in Puerto Rico, I have some bad news for you. As noted by the ever-vigilant folks over at NeoGAF, PR Gamer has reported that GameStop will be closing down all of its existing stores in Puerto Rico.

According to Joel Mooring, GameStop’s public relations director, the stores are closing down because of “ongoing business challenges and increased governmental restraints.”

“Given the ongoing business challenges and increased governmental restraints we have experienced in Puerto Rico, GameStop has made the business decision to close all of its video game stores and operations located on the island. As a result, GameStop will be exiting the Puerto Rican market by the end of March 2016. Until that time, we will continue to conduct normal business operations.”

So there you have it. What are your thoughts on gaming retail stores closing down? Are you more of a digital release person that isn’t too affected by this news? Let us know in the comments down below.
