GameStop has also generated some confusion about questions regarding coronaviruses. Second, do not close down stores, telephone conferences and refuse to encourage workers who “choose” not to go to work during a pandemic. The leaked calling conference said how the stores will be open and the quarantined workers will not collect their wages from GameStop. However, today EB Games Canada, a subsidiary of GameStop, has announced its plan to close down all its shops.
Despite earlier mistrust, after calling itself a “critical company,” California Stop closed its stores Now all the shops in Canada have been shut down.
EB Games Canada announces that all its shops will be shut until further notice, reminding its followers on Facebook. Nonetheless, the online store will remain to function via deliveries.
EB Games said in a statement:
Dear Valued Customers,
“We wanted to let you know that EB Games Canada will be closing all stores effective end of business Friday March 20th. Like many retailers, we will continue to monitor COVID-19 closely with the commitment to open again at a time we feel both our team and customers are safe.”
“Online ordering will remain available through time. Customers can continue to place orders on EBGames.ca to access all their Gaming and Collectible needs.

“The EB team would like to thank all of you for your continued support.
Spiel Times talked to one of GameStop’s current employees who mentions they’re still going to work, “because if I didn’t I would have to use my own accrued sick time to cover that time off. I can’t afford to not work right now.”
