GameStop is hoping to be everyone’s destination for all things gaming this summer, with the video game chain kicking off a two-week summer sale that offers a ton of discounts on everything from consoles to toys and more than 200 video games with prices starting at just $4.97.

This comes as the chain is in the midst of a multi-year slump, with GameStop’s stock having shed two-thirds of its value since 2017 and first-quarter sales this year down 13%. A recent CNN analysis summed up the chain’s woes this way — it’s basically in the wrong business at the wrong time, with consumers streaming and downloading content more, while they visit brick-and-mortar stores less and less.

To be sure, that last part is true across almost all of retail. Something else that’s widely true across retail is that people love sales and discounts. GameStop’s full announcement about the summer sale is here, but you can check out the full run-down below:
