GameStop to begin selling new iPhones, iPods, iPads?
Shares of GameStop rose on an otherwise-bad day for stocks, up 66 cents to $22.79 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Sunday, the Apple news site 9to5mac.com reported that GameStop reported that GameStop plans to sell Apple’s iOS mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPods and iPads, at GameStop stores. 9to5mac.com is not affiliated with Apple.
GameStop earlier this year began selling and taking trades in used iPods and iPhones throughout North Texas.
“We see an opportunity there to extend buy-sell-trade, and we’re trying to move with a lot of velocity before the market catches up,” Paul Raines, GameStop CEO, said said in an interview with the Star-Telegram in June.
GameStop isn’t responding yet to a request for an interview on the latest news.
GameStop made the announcement to dealers at a trade show in Las Vegas last week, 9to5mac.com said.
