Surviving and Thriving with a Video Game Store | Play N Trade

When Jeff Pearson started his Play N Trade video game store in Lafayette, Louisiana, Play N Trade was a successful franchise with 750 stores nationwide.

A few years later, after the original founder retired, the company went through three CEOs and essentially collapsed.

However, Jeff's store is still going. He even has plans to open a second one.

How did Jeff's version of Play N Trade survive? What makes him different?

This week on Small Business War Stories, we get the whole story from Jeff.
