Gamestop offers customers the most popular new software, hardware and game accessories for next generation video game systems and the PC. In addition, their used game trade program lets you ‘recycling’ games you no longer play.
GameStop traces its roots to Babbage’s, a small software retailer that started in Dallas, Texas. The metamorphosis from Babbage’s into GameStop began with a series of mergers. In 1999, Babbage’s Etc. was sold to Barnes & Noble. In late 2004, GameStop spun off from Barnes & Noble and then proceeded to acquire Electronics Boutique (EB Games) in 2005.
These mergers and expansions made Gamestop one of the largest entertainment retailers. At the moment they operate 6700 shops in various countries. In 2009 they opened a whopping 400 new stores!
The company also has a strong market for used video games. In 2010 almost half their profits came from selling used video games.
Gamestop also accepts Discover and GameStop gift cards. They are one of the few online shops to accept American Express.
