A popular way for people to get new video games is to trade in old ones. Which works if the store you traded them at is still in business.
The future of one video game store, which may no longer be around, has some customers wondering what’s happening to their money.
“Traded in a whole bunch of Gamecube games got about a little over $200.00 dollars in credit,” says Josh Smith, a customer of Gamerz Planet, a video game store in Clifton.
With a “Closed for Inventory” sign on the door and the inside empty many wonder if the store is still open. KREX 5 News reached out to Gamerz Planet but didn’t get a response. Their Facebook page has also been removed.
“It’s pretty frustrating, money is a little tight, and losing out on $200.00 dollars worth of video games is not ideal,” says Smith.
“We’re all gamers at the end of the day and we all just want to play video games you know it’s good to have healthy competition I think,” says Sahul Acosta, General Manager of XZRT Gaming.
