Since the launch of Pokémon GO, many businesses have tried to figure out how to capitalize on the huge success of the game, with rumors claiming that stores like McDonald’s may sponsor the game by becoming PokéStops or gyms. Most places are seeing an increase in business if there is a nearby PokéStop. This is the case for 462 GameStop stores, which all saw a 100% increase in sales over the past weekend. With Pokémon GO becoming more popular by the day, it won’t be surprising if other retailers report a similar increase in sales as well.

Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
