Fantasy figures retailer to start trading again
By Sarah Wood | 28th April 2020
Games Workshop will start making trade sales in Europe and North America this week and will take online orders from May.
The decision comes after the retailer, which has stores in Gloucester and Cheltenham, introduced changes to its warehouse operations to enable social distancing in response to the coronavirus pandemic, as reported by Retail Gazette.
While most Games Workshop stores worldwide are currently closed, a small number have reopened in China, The Netherlands and Scandinavia.
The retailer said it would look to reopen more stores across the world when individual government restrictions are lifted.
Prior to coronavirus and lockdown, the niche retailer had been having a successful year - with pre-tax profits for the six months to 1st December up 44 per cent to £58.6 million.
