While other high street stores are struggling, Scottish company Geek Retreat announce plans to open an additional 86 stores across the UK, making a total of 100 stores nationwide.
Geek Retreat – which specialises in “all things geeky” including comics, memorabilia and table top games – says it will open another 100 stores over the next two years, at a time when the UK High Street is under pressure.
The Scottish firm currently has 14 UK sites, which combine retail space with cafes and areas to play games and hold events.
It said its Covid-safe plan would create around 600 new jobs.
Geek Retreat – founded in Glasgow in 2017 – stocks merchandise such as comics, posters, clothing, figures and memorabilia as well as games and trading cards.
It also specialises in various cult brands such as Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars and Harry Potter, while selling graphic novels and gaming accessories such as dice.
