Play N Trade closing doors after six years

Screens at the Play N Trade store in Idaho Falls, which will be selling off its merchandise and closing.

I found this on Facebook at lunchtime -- a letter from Play N Trade owner Jeremy Hix to all his online customers and friends -- and thought it worth sharing:

Hey everyone this is Jeremy the store owner of Chubbuck and Idaho Falls. While I wish I could call every customer and let you know this personally there is no way I can. After over 6 great years of striving to give you the best game store experience around, we have decided to close our doors. It is not an easy or fun choice but as the market has changed dramatically from the glory days of gaming it has become necessary. We will be having clearance/liquidation sales starting today, through the end of month when we we close the doors. Please come in use your store credit up. More posts to come on the sales, but great deals are coming your way. Thanks everyone for your awesome support of Play N Trade, and your incredible loyalty to us. Myself and our current and former staff have life long friends from this adventure and are grateful for that. I have had some incredible employees over these 6 years and I know this is painful for them. As many have worked tirelessly to make Play N Trade a great place to be. I must say thanks to them as well.
