Games Workshop is continuing its store closure programme and rationalisation of its manufacturing and supply chain as part of a programme of cost reduction.

The retailer published half-year results that showed turnover for the six months to December 2 static at£54.6 million. Games Workshop chief executive Mark Wells and chairman Tom Kirby said: “There is still much to do and we are united in our determination to do it.”

Game Workshop’s operating profit also stood still at£500,000 mirroring that achieved in 2006, although this included an exceptional£600,000 that was used to realise the cost reduction programme.

During the period, five Hobby stores were opened and 18 shops were closed – four in the UK, nine in the Americas, four in continental Europe and one in the Asia Pacific region. Games Workshop has 335 outlets.
