I frequently receive games at my store any you can see the cost right on the order. All $60 new releases cost between $45.50-$47 depending on the publisher and a flat $48 for Nintendo published Switch games. So yes there is a wee bit of profit in there but only if you pickup in store. But as soon as they have to ship any of those for online orders it's basically a wash. This is exactly why they started doing the $1 pickup discount.
There was some speculation earlier in the thread that the employee discount is worse than GCU and that is right. A new $60 game is usually $50-51 for us (aka 5% above cost) and that doesn't adjust when a game goes on sale. The cost is only updated when there is an official price drop. Just about the only things that had a better price with the discount were amiibo and stuff like the Farpoint bundle which are more "accessories" then software.

Wouldn't expect closing stores to clearance out games -- especially since TRU is only closing a fraction of their stores. Makes far more sense to pack that stuff up and ship it to their other locations that will be staying open.
TRU isn't going to go under. They'll emerge out of bankruptcy and after they've eliminated some bad debts, they may even thrive.
