Former Gameworks managers to save ex-Gameworks spot in Columbus, Ohio
Another Gameworks location has been “saved”, this time at the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. This one will be run by the company which managed Gameworks stores from
1999 to 2005, known as KDB. The Columbus site will be re-opened on Aug. 5th, with a new focus targeting older audiences, much like Dave and Busters. They also have a Gameworks card buyback program so if you still happen to have a card your money won’t be completely lost. There is little information on what kind of game selection will be present, all they have stated is that it will have “lots of new games.”
In light of this news, that leaves most of the closed Gameworks locations accounted for under new management, laying a blow to those who would use the Gameworks liquidation as a sure sign of the failing arcade industry.
