In a statement released on Sunday, OpCapita said: “There are no plans for any further store closures.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Stratford’s GAME store has recently slashed its closing time from 8pm to 5:30pm, although a member of staff said this was just because no-one was coming in after 6pm.

He said the opening hours might return to previous times when the evenings get warmer in the summer.
