GME, through its buy and sell trade program, enables gamers to be able to trade in video game consoles and accessories, as well as consumer electronics for cash or in-store credit.

GAMESTOP operates in various countries; which includes, United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. The company is headquartered in Grapevine, Texas, and is the largest video game retailer worldwide.

GameStop had struggled in recent years due to competition from digital distribution services, as well as the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which reduced the number of customers who shopped traditionally.

As a result, GameStop’s stock price declined, leading many institutional investors to short sell the stock.

Short-selling is a monetary practice whereby an investor (known as a short seller), borrows shares and sells them immediately, hoping to buy them back later at a lower price, then return the borrowed shares with interest to the lender, hence, profiting off the difference.


are exposed to a risk of short squeezing, which happens when the shorted stock jumps in value due.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, GameStop was all over the news. The company refused to abide with the state laws (to lockdown), claiming it was ‘essential retail’ to remain open amid COVID-19 shutdowns.

GameStop instructed its retail employees to keep stores open, irrespective of the fact that local authorities kept looking for ways to shut them down over the covid-related lockdown.

GameStop said;

they were “instituting multiple social distancing practices” in their stores by;

  • allowing 10 people in at a time;
  • reducing its store hours;
  • rolling out door deliveries policy so customers can pick up orders outside the retail location;
  • suspending trade-ins for the time being;
  • postponing all events and midnight launches; and;
  • disabling all in-store game stations. Instead of instructing its retail employees to stay home.

GameStop also said they were “providing all their stores with the necessary supply of disinfectant materials and hand sanitizer” and only allowing employees to remain home “if they are sick or experiencing any flu-like symptoms.”

The public were not fully delighted in the actions taken by GameStop during the pandemic. Hence, it resulted in a slight drop in the stock price and revenue of the company. 2020 was recorded as a bad business year by most firms, GameStop not so much.
