GAME set to make a return to Grimsby after closing just a few months ago

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 5 Aug 2018

Popular gaming outlet Game is set to return to Grimsby after its shock closure earlier this year.

The closure of Game in Freshney Place in March was a huge blow to gamers across North East Lincolnshire, as they lost a trusted and reliable store that was able to cater to nearly all of their gaming needs.

But now the store is set to return from the dead, as Game took to social media to announce that it will be opening a new shop in Grimsby.

The new store is due to open in just a few weeks time on Friday, August 17, exactly five months after the closure of the original store.

Game Grimsby tweeted yesterday: "People of Grimsby we are delighted to announce our return to the wonderful city.

"We will be back opening on the 17th August to come back and fulfil all your gaming needs.

"Keep your eyes peeled for more news shortly."

A location for the new store has not been revealed yet, and so far on Twitter Game have refused to say exactly where it will be.

However this has not stopped excited gamers from trying to guess where the new store will be located, with the most popular suggestion being Freshney Place.

Game has said that a number of people on social media have guessed the correct location already.

Laura Owen tweeted when she found out the news about the store returning: "Woohoo finally!

"Now you just need to get the old team back together, there was some quality staff in there."

While Marc Gregory simply said: "Thank the lord."
