GAME, the leading high street video game retailer today announced that it will be re-homing unwanted Christmas socks in exchange for in-store credit, with its first ever New Year Sock Swap!
Following the Christmas period, unwanted socks get thrown to the back of the drawer and forgotten, or worse still – they go straight in the bin. Over 25% of Brits class socks as their least-desired Christmas present, with a combined £5B a year wasted on unwanted presents, whilst the number one requested item for the UK’s homeless shelter is….. socks!
To ensure the dreaded Christmas sock reaches people who actually want them and to kickstart 2020 positively, GAME will be offering customers extra credit for their trade-ins when they bring in their unwanted (new & unworn!) pairs.
An extra £2 will be given for games and an extra £15 when customers trade in tablets, phones or consoles. Every pair of socks collected will then be donated to various homeless charities to help communities up and down the country.

The nights are growing longer, and the shops on every High Street have begun to play Noddy Holder, it’s nature’s way of telling you it’s time to start thinking about your Christmas attire before the Tinsilitis kicks in.
There’s nothing like a new item of clothing to bring up the elf-esteem and this Christmas, GAME is offering customers the chance to pull a cracker as it brings a touch of retro with a new range of gaming-themed jumpers and socks for those who want to indulge in a little festive geekery.
The range includes jumpers that even your Grandmother’s knitting skills couldn’t match with a span of iconic gaming themes; Playstation, Sonic & Robotnik, and Street Fighter are all available for £29.99 in store and online at www.game.co.uk. The socks will please even the most ungrateful uncle at only £9.99, and with the same range of gaming themes and unique designs.
Charlotte Knight, Category Director at GAME says: “We know gamers eat, sleep, dream games and now they can wear them too… every stocking needs socks and these are the perfect gift for the gamer in your life.”
