Blame your gouging and sh*tty business practice.
This ^^^^

It's fu*ked up so many people have to lose their jobs around the country but, lets face it Gamestop has been ripping off customers for years. I stopped trading in my games to GS like 2 or 3 years ago when I found a online site to trade my games to in which I can get much more credit for the games I get rid of.

In the long run, I see gamestop as whole going out of business in the next 5-10 years especially if digital gaming/downloading gets faster and better. The only time I might go to gamestop is when I'm at the mall all I might get is PSN/Live subscription cards.

This should be expected. They opened way too many stores when they were having all of that success years back. Economy, online passes, amazon (the God), etc. has added up. They can really offer the deals that other stores offer because they have no product that would recoup the costs outside of used games. If they're blaming this console generation for being to long I wonder what they'll do when no where near as many big budget games come out next generation. Their time is done.
The bottom line is that basically these online sites like amazon is just taking over and eating into gamestop's profits/business b/c they just simply have better deals online overall and they are barely competing with the competition.

One store they seriously need to get rid of very quickly is gameplay (the same as GS but the deals are even worse which is amazing)

Not a fan of gamestop/EB Games at all. Wonder how much the Gamestop CEO makes per year. Lot of times these companies complaining about how they're profits are down, are paying their CEO's hundreds of millions per year. Allegedly Hostess' CEO was getting a 300% raise as they were complaining about paying benefits. smh

They have too many fu*king stores anyway. We have 3 different stores within 1 or 2 miles of each other. It amazes me that they can all stay open.

the people in charge are not the ones suffering though, the people just trying to earn a buck working at the stores are.
That may be true but there are employees there that straight try and fu*k you over and do so with a straight face then they say "I was just doing what my manger told me to do just following orders" just to make a quick buck I have no sympathy for them.

What do you want them to do or say? They didn't come up with selling gutted copies of games as new, sh*tty trade in values, pushing magazine subs and preorders. It's their fu*king job. You can hate the company all you want, but if you think those employees like what they're being told to do you're mistaken. How exactly did they go outside of policy to fu*k you over?

I didn't know gamestops across the street from each other was a common occurrence elsewhere. Here there's one in the mall, one across the street from the mall, and one RIGHT DOWN THE BLOCK next to a Target.

It does suck for the normal employees (time to apply at Best Buy ) I know a ton of people personally who work there, but for real though what the hell do you expect when you're buying 360s from homies for 40 bucks and flipping it for triple the price. Does anyone know what exactly a "restocking fee" is?

Is you in the bay area, i have the exact same GS locations in my area ... its a damn shame really.

Southland Mall (which used to have a FuncoLand on the inside as well), Outside of the Mall, and the off A Street.

Almost everywhere I go there is roughly 2 of them and the parking lot STAYS empty except on holidays and major release dates

Those employees have quotas to meet just like the managers, if they under-perform too badly, the company won't hesitate to give them the ax. Gamestop is grimy like that.
