As The Press reported at the time, Game York, the video game store selling board games and new and used video games, plus consoles, controllers and collectables, closed on Thursday, September 1 last year.

At the time it said: "Thank you to everyone for your support," it said.

"Make sure to come visit us before we go!"

The news came just days after TK Maxx announced that its store in Coney Street was to close, making way for a Hard Rock Cafe.

Bon Marché's store in Goodramgate also closed earlier the same summer making way for Driffield-based Yorkshire Trading Company.
