Mystery and intrigue surrounds the sudden closing of one of the Bay Areas central GW outlets in Oakridge mall in San Jose California. Details remain sketchy as to why the store was closed without any sort of notice or warning but some rumors have surfaced to explain the sudden closer.
The leading story tells of a mass exodus of presumably unhappy employees who up and quit with no advance notice, leaving only two other employees in charge of the store who soon after also quit, this is of course only a rumor and the true story remains to be heard but we will attempt to get to the bottom of this.
Should there be any validity to this story one is left with many disturbing questions as to what could have lead to this rather drastic and dramatic conclusion, where the work conditions unbearable? Was it perhaps some sort of outward pressure from corporate overlords? Maybe even a hostile work environs. Alright so maybe we are sensationalizing things a tad, but you have to ask yourself, what could cause an entire staff to quit a paying job in a state with one of the highest unemployment levels in the country and on the tail end of one of the worst recessions in US history. Only questions remain, questions we may never answer but in the mean time a GW store sits empty, gates drawn and a community of gamers both new and old displaced indefinitely.
