Les temps sont durs pour Micromania.

C'est en octobre 2008 que GameStop, première chaîne mondiale spécialisée dans la vente de jeux vidéo, s'était offerte les 332 magasins du groupe Micromania pour 480 millions d'euros. Il est désormais trop tard.

Childish Gambino won the coveted prize for best music video for his politically provocative " This Is America ". There was a tie for best rap performance , and Drake was surprisingly not one of the winners.

Le 29 janvier, l'action GameStop a atteint son plus bas niveau en Bourse depuis 2005. Rappelons que Gamestop (comme Micromania en France) souffre d'une concurrence féroce portée (comme souvent) par le mastodonte Amazon, qui propose des tarifs nettement plus attractifs.

Mais, pour survivre, le groupe n'exclut pas de fermer un certain nombre de ses 7.000 boutiques dans le monde. Par ricochet, les 450 magasins Micromania en France qui emploient entre 1000 et 1500 salariés pourraient eux aussi être affectés de près ou de loin par ces dettes.
