A sports retailer is to take over space previously used by a games store.

Sports Direct, based in Stevenage Town Centre, is to expand to include the former GAME premises next door.

Under the plans the current Sports Direct entrance will be covered over and the former GAME entrance given priority. After knocking through the dividing wall, the store will occupy 10,000 sq ft space across two floors.

GAME has moved to a shopping unit between HMV and Barclays bank.
