Newsbrief: California-based retailer Play N Trade has merged with Canadian chain Dimension Games, with the latter now operating as Play N Trade Canada and rebranding its locations. The two companies say this merger allows them to combine their respective strengths, such as Dimension Games' game rental model, online programs for customers and store owners, and in-store gaming pay-for-play platform; and Play N Trade's repair business and franchise support structure. Play N Trade claims to be the second largest chain of video game stores in North America behind GameStop, and the largest franchisor for video game stores in the world. It believes this merge will grow its value to partners, enable it to increase its focus on Canada, and provide new opportunities to franchise owners.
