April 28, 2009 // Franchising.com // Newport Beach, Calif., – Gamer Doc™, the retail video game store franchise that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, today announced that Bill Noah has joined the area developer team, where he will direct store development in the city of Raleigh and the surrounding area. Gamer Doc currently has area developers for Northern Virginia, Atlanta, Miami, St. Petersburg and Orlando, Florida, Orange County, California, and in the Toronto and Philadelphia metro areas.
"Bill is a great addition to our team as we strengthen our presence on the East Coast, and continue to expand in our existing markets and enter new cities across the U.S. and Canada," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc. "There are some very exciting growth opportunities in his area and we look forward to much success."
"Video games are the most popular form of entertainment in the country, which is why sales continue to achieve double-digit growth even in this tough economy," Noah said. "The market keeps growing as more consumers of all ages and families choose video games as the best value and the most fun for their entertainment dollar. I am pleased to be part of the team, as Gamer Doc offers entrepreneurs the best opportunity to open their own video game store and be part of this incredible trend."
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.
"Gamer Doc stores are bringing a new innovation to retail by putting customers in charge of their own shopping experience, whether they are hardcore gamers, casual players, moms and dads, or senior citizens," Noah said. "Customers who know what they want can come in and buy, rent, pre-order or trade-in a game, drop off a console or disc for repair, and be in and out of the store quickly, while those who are new to gaming, or want to browse, can take as much time and ask as many questions as they'd like."
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.
