April 13, 2010 // Franchising.com // 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 store in New Jersey. Rylan Entertainment, LLC is the new owner, which plans to open the store in Cherry Hill at 843 Cooper Landing early this summer.
"We are pleased to welcome Rylan Entertainment to the Gamer Doc team, because they have some very exciting plans for New Jersey," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc.

Cherry Hill will be Gamer Doc's seventh store. The company currently has stores open in Bear, Delaware; Burlington, Ontario; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Highland Park, California; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Springfield, Pennsylvania.
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, or drop a disc or console off for repair. 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.
"Our goal is to make Gamer Doc the number one destination for all of the video game fans in and around Cherry Hill," Belanger said. "The store will be available for birthday parties and other celebrations, and will also host tournaments where local gamers can meet and compete for great prizes."
