Hhgregg Gets into Gaming Business
Hhgregg is shoving over the big boys and getting into the game, business that is. Starting Black Friday, November 28th, customers will find console bundles, portable platforms, videogames and accessories lining the shelves of the Indianapolis-based appliance and electronics retailer.
“As hhgregg continues its disciplined growth, we are committed to continually assessing our product offerings to best meet the needs of our customers,” said hhgregg Chairman and CEO, Jerry Throgmartin. “We are pleased to now offer our loyal patrons some of the most popular merchandise in the gaming market today. hhgregg will provide our customers with a convenient, one-stop gaming solution, packaging gaming consoles with its respective games, controllers and other accessories. This customer-friendly gaming package will make a great gift for the upcoming holiday season.”
In case you have any concerns that the staff will be completely unable to help you, according to the press release on Business Wire, hhgregg has started running it’s employees through a training program to educate them about games and accessories. Hopefully they’ll also go over ESRB ratings in detail since the general public seems to not quite grasp them.
