To answer your question, you have to be at least 16 years old to work for Game Stop. This video game sales company has a unique corporate history which intimately links it to another major retailer - but not of games, of books! This company was originally known as Babbage's, a store based in Dallas, Texas. The first major merger occurred in 1994, when Babbage's merged with a company named Software Etc.
They began to do business as NeoStar retail, but the name was only functional - the companies still seemed to operate separately, eventually leading to a Chapter 11 reorganization. Before the company could be split, though, Leonard Riggio, the CEO of Barnes & Noble bookstore, offered to invest enough money in the company to prevent it from being split. Riggio expressed his distaste for the name NeoStar, and wished for the company to be renamed. They eventually merged with EB Games, bringing the company to what it is today.
