GameStop is relocating in West Manchester Township.

The video game store at 2150 White St. has submitted plans to the township to join the new West Manchester Town Center, said Monica Love, township zoning officer.

GameStop was previously in West Manchester Mall and moved to White Street before demolition began at the mall site.

It's the seventh retailer to sign on to the new shopping center.

Ann Taylor Loft, Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, DSW, GNC, Kay Jewelers, Kirkland's and Petco have also submitted plans to join West Manchester Town Center.

The plans: The mall is in progress of a $47 million overhaul that will transform the 32-year-old enclosed mall into a shopping plaza with outward-facing storefronts.

Demolition is ongoing at 1800 Loucks Road, and developers expect West Manchester Town Center to open in time for the Christmas shopping season, with many stores opening in October.

But which stores will open then is unclear.

The anchors — Kohl's, Macy's, Regal Cinemas and Walmart — have remained open during demolition.

Macy's, however, is scheduled to close in late September or early October, according to a press release.

The closing is part of the company's process of reducing underperforming locations while opening new ones in other markets, the release said.

No other retailer has submitted plans to the township to take over the space being left vacant by Macy's, but developers have received a lot of interest, Love said.

The Macy's site could also be redeveloped into space for multiple stores, she said.

Other than the soon-to-be-vacant Macy's, there are still 12 empty sites at the new West Manchester Town Center.

Those sites could also be redeveloped into more than one store, up to about 24, Love said.
