Still More Changes...

Okay... I hope to have some pictures up in the next few days, but we have moved some things around in the store once again. We had some shelves we were using for RPGs and used games just absolutely die on us a few weeks back, so we picked up a couple of "make-do" shelves from one of the local DIY stores. Turns out, we kind of liked them for a number of reasons.

So, we picked up a third shelf, and moved some stuff around. The rearrange, if we compact some things, gives us back about six to eight feet of slatwall space. It doesn't seem like much, but truthfully, we can put a *TON* of product in that space. Now we just have to figure out what we are putting there.

Also, the local entertainment weekly put up the electronic version of our "Best Regional Store" write-up. You can find that here. Hopefully, it will be the first of many such awards, but I am trying to stay humble and take things one step at a time.

In gaming, Shady and I had a talk, and we are going to go with a plan he came up with to keep my character in the Terracide game viable given what has happened to him recently. I have trepidations on this plan, but only because the character, like before when he became the captain of a spaceship, really isn't ready to handle what he has been given/offered. The character is either going to be oddly triumphant with flying colors, or (more probably) take the whole campaign down with him. We'll see how that goes...

  1. Holy crap. You guys beat Art Mart and Champaign Surplus! After only five years I guess you now rank an "institution."

    BTW, you might want to update the store's website, since people will probably visit the site after reading the article. Right now the front page still has the Spotlight from nearly two months ago. That doesn't make a good first impression. (When I was looking for a game store, one of the reasons I went to AGG rather than the other store is because its website was so long out of date.)

  2. Yeah, we know the front page needs to be updated, but we've been trying to figure out what to put up there for a bit.

    Once we found out that we won, we were waiting for the Buzz to update their website so we could link to the article. That happened on Sunday the 11th.

    As for beating out Art Mart and Champaign Surplus, I was more than a bit stunned myself... Shocked, really.
