It’s been 5 years…
I still remember sitting at my desk, getting things ready and waiting. Waiting for my first customer. Waiting for affirmation that what I did was the right thing. Waiting… Waiting…
Then I turned on my radio to listen to the Mariners and heard the last inning of what would turn out to be King Felix’s perfect game. Quickly I got over being miffed that I had missed the first 8 innings and listened intently to history. Felix finished the game and I figured that was a good omen for the shop.
$12 in sales later we closed for the day and haven’t looked back since.
Over the past 5 years we have had good times and lean times. There are products and games we don’t carry anymore. We were one of the first shops in the area to Stream tournaments and that’s not around anymore, neither is the (ILL FATED!) Computer lab! Expansion and contraction and Expansion again, and through it all, the community has stood by us and helped. The community here is absolutely amazing. We could have not done it without all of your help! From volunteers to players; Mothers and fathers; Whovians and Trekkies, every single one of you has been an integral part of our success.
We will be holding a party in the near future, watch this space. For this weekend, we’re going to party like it’s 2012! At 1PM on Saturday we will be holding Return to Ravnica Throwback drafts at the throwback price of $12! Please call the shop with any questions. I look forward to seeing all of you here!
From the Bottom of my heart, I thank every single one of you reading for being a part of this. Thank you for sticking by us for 5 years!
