March 10, 2009 // Franchising.com // Newport Beach, Calif., – Gamer Doc™, the retail video game store franchise that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, will be exhibiting at the International Franchise Expo, March 20-22 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C., in booth #622. Gamer Doc has started out the year strong, opening three franchises in the first quarter.
"Since we opened our first franchises in Los Angeles and Miami in late 2008, the response to the Gamer Doc concept and the innovative shopping experience we are bringing to retail has been tremendous," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc. "Between January 1 and March 1 of 2009, we opened Gamer Doc franchises in Burlington, Ontario; Springfield, Pennsylvania; and Bear, Delaware. This year is going to be an exciting one for us as we continue to extend our footprint across North America."
Gamer Doc is more than a video game store; it is an entertainment center, featuring "Gamer Centers" for Xbox 360®, PlayStation3® and Wii®, making it easy for customers to find the games, consoles and accessories they are looking for. Gamer Doc also sells flat-panel HD monitors and cables, offers console and disc repairs, and the knowledgeable staff can show customers how to hook-up their systems for optimum game play.
Designed to provide an enjoyable shopping experience for everyone, Gamer Doc customers who know what they want can come in and buy, rent, sell, pre-order or trade-in games, drop off a console or game for repair, and be in and out of the store quickly, while those who are new to gaming or want to browse, can take their time and have all of their questions answered.
"Our franchisees are very excited to be part of the video game industry, which continues to experience robust sales even in this sluggish economy," Belanger said. "More and more consumers of all ages, from kids to parents to senior citizens, are choosing video games as the best value and the most fun for their entertainment dollar."
Gamer Doc is an innovative franchise concept that offers the opportunity to own, develop and operate a retail video game emporium. Launched in December 2007, Gamer Doc delivers a new and interactive experience to all customers. From dedicated gamers to Mom or Dad who want to try out a game, trade-in some old games or check out the latest titles and consoles from Microsoft®, Nintendo®, and Sony®, all customers will enjoy the ultimate gaming experience. Gamer Doc offices are located in Newport Beach, Calif.
