Scots retailer expands
Geek Retreat to open 100 gaming stores
Peter Dobson: Customers can play safely
Scottish retailer Geek Retreat, a place to play games and meet friends, is planning to open 100 stores over the next two years as its mix of “all things geeky” proves a rare retail winner.
It stocks merchandise such as comics, posters, clothing, figures and memorabilia as well as games and trading cards.
It specialises in various cult brands such as Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars and Harry Potter.
The business, which was founded in Glasgow in 2017, is aiming to open five stores per month from the beginning of next year. It says its expansion plan will create 600 jobs.
