Gamestop might be leaving public trading


#1

Definitely not the first time we’ve talked about Gamestop’s situation:

If they go the way of private equity acquisition, it’s not looking great for them. I wonder if/how this could affect ThinkGeek.

I think they can survive but I imagine they have some debt they can’t get rid of in the form of old inventory. Mostly games and hardware they’ll never sell. That business model is basically ancient at this point.

Clearly gaming culture is alive and well though. There’s a place for some physical locations I would think. Maybe they need to close some stores and regroup which will likely happen after a sale.
