GameStop has closed all its stores in Massachusetts, after instructing employees last week to wrap their hands in plastic bags and give customers their orders through a crack in the door.

After operating for several days in violation of the state’s shutdown order, on Tuesday the inspection services department for the City of Boston ordered the Dorchester store to close immediately. No fine was issued but a nuisance order was issued and the inspector visited the store on Wednesday to ensure it had not reopened, according to the city. On Thursday, GameStop confirmed that it had closed all its stores in Massachusetts but did not respond to further questions.

During these unprecedented times all non essential businesses have been told to close their store as a matter of public safety. GameStop has argued that they provide entertainment and should be considered essential. As a person who does still like to buy games on disk, even I question that statement from the company. In today’s era of digital downloads and online ordering, I can’t support their stance that they are truelove essential.
