UPDATE: A full list of the affected stores is listed below.

In a media release from PwC it has been confirmed that 264 store employees and 17 head office employees will be made redundant, following a review of "the financial performance and profitability of individual stores".

"This is a difficult time for employees and closing the stores was not a decision we made easily," PwC administrator Kate Warwick said. "However it is not financially viable to continue to operate at this level at this time."

"PwC has been in touch with the Federal Government Department that deals with General Employee Entitlements and Redundancy Scheme (GEERS) and will assist the employees with their applications."

According to GAME Australia's official website, the retailer has more than 115 stores nationwide. PwC provided CVG with the full list of affected stores, which you can see below.
