Game stores, originally known as the Rhino Group, was established by Terry Norris and Bev Ripley in 1992. After a series of mergers and acquisitions in the 1990s, Rhino Group went on to be rebranded into the current brand Game Group. Its continued expansion afterwards has been through the acquisition of several retailing outlets all over the world. However, in 2019, Game Digital was acquired and taken over by the Frasers Group. Shoprite, CMart Supermarket, Spar, Justrite, Supermart, Addide, Prince Ebeano Supermarket and Walmart are some of its direct competitors whose business model and goods sold are quite similar.
