An independent video games retailer has opened in the George Centre.

Reload Games sell consoles, games and accessories ranging from the retro Spectrum and Amiga to the latest releases with the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. It is the brainchild of business partners Andy Jones and Michael Wealleans, who already have a branch in Newark.

Prior to this they worked for Gamestation, but were determined to stay in the industry when this went into administration.

Andy said: “We were looking to expand and already had a relationship with Grantham through regular customers who often made the journey to us.

“It seemed like the right time to open with numbers in the George Centre and on the High Street picking up.”

Customers can also trade in consoles and games for store credit, and Reload offer a layaway scheme, so items can be pre-ordered and paid for by instalments.

Opening times are Monday to Saturday, 9.30am to 5pm, with more details available at the website
