Game... Stop

Laurel Mall - Hazleton, PA
For the first time in over 25 years, the Laurel Mall is not going to have a video game store.  The dude behind the counter told me that the store is closing at the end of the month.  This store used to be an Electronics Boutique in the 2000's.  In fact, the EB World logo is still on the carpet at the entrance.

There were a few games still available, but the store was pretty picked clean by the time I got there on Friday.  However, if you're in the market for a set of adult medium Captain America Underoos, they've got you covered.  Act fast - they're only going to be open through the end of the month or until there's a statewide coronavirus quarantine that forces the mall to close, whichever comes first.

UPDATE: Governor Tom Wolf recommended all non-essential businesses to close as of 12:01 AM.  Grocery stores, drug stores and gas stations are allowed to stay open, but other retail locations will close until further notice.  Sadly, when this all blows over and stores re-open, the Game Stop in the Laurel Mall will not be among them.  I hope you got those Underoos.
