Electronics Boutique Launches 2,000th Store2 Mar, 2005 By: Lyndsey Shinoda
Electronics Boutique recently opened its 2,000th store with a location in Trieste, Italy. This store marks the company's 57th store in Italy and its 527 international store.
“It is fitting that our 2,000th location is situated in Europe, reflecting our commitment to expanding our international presence and building upon our strong brand equity,” said Jeffrey Griffiths, president and CEO of Electronics Boutique Holdings Corp. “The fact that we have been able to grow from a single kiosk in 1977 to 2,000 stores today confirms the strength of our business model. Given the highly-fragmented nature of the video game arena, we believe many opportunities exist to expand into both new and existing markets.”
