I’m not sure whether it was real or just some fake news, but it seemed authentic enough. Game Stop in the US requesting to be recognized as essential business in order to stay open via letter.
I’m not too surprised though. Game Stop is notorious for being villainous. Buying used games from kids way under value for example. They bring five games they hardly want to part with just to get that one new one. And then they’re being told it’s not enough.
But I’m sure there are many businesses right now that are acting unethical or abusive. Once the pandemic is over, I’m sure they’ll get hit right back by the consumers.
