Get ready to battle at Geek-Aboo!
The global spread of COVID-19 has made the year of 2020 incredibly challenging for us all. For many, lockdown has led to the closure of businesses and public spaces to meet and socialise with other people. As the lockdown restrictions are slowly lifting, many small business owners face the brunt of the economic effects of this global pandemic. Thankfully, there are many businesses that are managing to survive, some of which receiving help from an unlikely source.
A few months ago, the creators of Pokemon Go launched the Niantic Local Business Recovery Initiative, to help businesses in the community to thrive after the lockdown. This would allow up to 1000 business across the UK to be chosen as an official Pokestop or Gym for a whole year, as well as have tools in the app to promote special events and discounts in store. We are pleased to announce that Geek-Aboo was one of the businesses chosen to be part of this amazing initiative!
Geek-Aboo would like to share a huge thank you to everyone who nominated us to be a sponsored Pokemon Gym. We couldn’t have done this without the support and nominations of our fellow geeks. To celebrate our newly christened stop, we have loads of upcoming deals and prize giveaways planned for all customers who visit our Pokestop, including official promotional items from the Pokemon Trading Card Game and exclusive discounts on all our Pokemon merch! Drop by our Gym sometime at 74 Queen Street, Glasgow.
