US retailer Play N Trade coming to UK

Despite the fact there's a GAME on every British street corner, US retailer Play N Trade "likes competition" and is planning on moving to the UK wholesale.

"GAME has a very strong presence in the UK and beyond, but I like competition," Play N Trade CEO Roger Lloyd said here. "GAME will have to adapt to Play N Trade and we will push them to new heights. Ultimately, the consumer will win out. There's no reason why, if we go in with a strong business plan and get the right people, right relationships and right distribution model, we can't come in and have the same growth as we have seen in the US."

Play N Trade is the fastest growing US high street retailer, the company claims, with over 100 stores. The first UK Play N Trade is planned to open in the second quarter of 2009.
