NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – Gamer Doc®, the retail video game store franchise that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, today announced the sale of its first stores in two new states. Gamer Doc franchises will open soon in Huntsville, Alabama and Katy, Texas.
"We are starting out 2010 strong, with our expansion into two new states, and we look forward to extending the Gamer Doc footprint across the U.S. throughout the year," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc. "We have sold 20 stores in the two years since the company was started, and these new stores continue our steady momentum and strategy of stable, successful growth."
Tom Wang is the owner of the first Gamer Doc franchise in Huntsville, and expects to open his store in early March. Leo Bernard and Troy Siewert are the first Gamer Doc franchisees in Texas, and plan to open their Katy store in early August.
Gamer Doc features Xbox® 360, PlayStation® and Wii® Gamer Centers, making it easy to find games, consoles and accessories for each platform. Customers can buy, rent, sell, play, pick-up, pre-order or trade-in a game, drop-off a disc or console for repair or their PC for a game download, sign-up for an upcoming in-store tournament, or rent the Pro Player room for a private party. HD flat-panel monitors and cables are also available, and the knowledgeable staff is happy to show customers how to hook-up their systems, share tips on how to improve their scores, try out new games, and answer any questions they might have.
"The response to the Gamer Doc concept and the innovative shopping experience we are bringing to retail has been tremendous," Belanger said. "Our franchisees are very excited to be part of the video game industry, which continues to be the category leader in consumer entertainment."
