Company Expanding Across the U.S. and Canada, with Locations
Now Open in Miami and Los Angeles
SEATTLE, Dec. 9// PRNewswire // -- Gamer Doc(TM), the retail video game store that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, will be exhibiting at Franchise Expo South at the Miami Convention Center, Jan. 9-11, 2009, in booth #905, where attendees will have the opportunity to learn how they can be part of the hottest sector in retail.
"The video game industry continues to be one of the bright spots in a weak economy," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc. "Despite shrinking demand in other categories, sales of video games, consoles and accessories continue to be strong, as more consumers of all ages choose video games as the best value and most fun for their entertainment dollar, and families are finding they are a great way to spend time together."
The company is expanding across the U.S. and Canada, with locations now open in Miami and Los Angeles. The Philadelphia and Toronto stores are slated to be open in mid-December, and additional Gamer Doc franchises have been sold in Oregon, Delaware and Arizona.
"Gamer Doc is more than just a video game store; it is an entertainment center," Belanger said. "People of all ages play video games, and we are here to meet all of their needs."
Customers can easily find the games, consoles and accessories they are looking for at the Xbox(R) 360, PlayStation(R) and Wii(R) "Gamer Centers" featured in each store. Gamer Doc also offers HD flat-panel monitors and cables, and the knowledgeable staff will take the time to show customers how to hook-up their systems so that they can enjoy the best game play possible.
"Shopping at Gamer Doc is fun, because every customer is in charge of their own shopping experience," Belanger said. "Gamers who know what they want can come in and pick-up, pre-order or rent a title, or drop off a console for repair and be in and out of the store very quickly. Those who are new to gaming or players who want to browse can take as much time and ask as many questions as they like."
