Game back in play with relaunched Connswater outlet creating 15 jobs

By Amanda Poole

Saved video games retailer Game is creating 15 new jobs with the reopening of a store in Belfast's Connswater shopping centre.

In March, 10 Game stores were closed at locations across Northern Ireland by Game Stores Group plc when it fell into administration.

The company assets were bought by a private equity company Baker Acquisitions Limited and it has since been renamed Game Retail.

The Connswater store in east Belfast is being reopened by Game Retail Ltd tomorrow to coincide with the launch of Medal of Honor and Forza Horizon.

Game now employs more than 85 staff at seven outlets across Northern Ireland.

Dave Howard, stores director at Game, said: "We are so pleased to be able to bring high street gaming to the Connswater shopping centre.

"We're really looking forward to being a big part of the gaming community and we are ready to get our game on."

Kevin McFeely, regional manager, said: "I am thrilled to be back in Connswater.

"I'm excited about opening the doors on Friday morning, showing everyone what Game is all about and shouting about some of our deals on the best new releases.

"I have a great team who are eager to get out there and have fun with the gaming community."
