Making me think of moving to Minnesota...
Frankly, I think the local shops should have some competition. I went into 3 different prominent gaming/comic stores and NOBODY had competitive pricing. They had all of their games at list price. I don't see how they stay in business when you can jump on the internet and get the games for up to about 50% off list at Amazon or stores in other states with an internet presence. I don't see how pure gaming stores stay in business. I am all for supporting local stores, but with the current economy who can afford to pay list price all of the time???
Great changes. :)
OMG! Look at the two dudes playing Warhammer:Invasion at the front table! The one on the right should be playing that Orc tactic card 'Waaaaaaaaggh" for an awesome attack power!
Nothing to stop other stores from offering discounts - my comic shop offers 20% off anything in Previews if you pre order.
The new store hours make sense and kinda saw that one coming. With FFG EC and Misty Mountain closed on mondays, it makes it easier to direct traffic to other shops who are open on those days.
Wonderful to offer rental armies. Neat idea that.
I am rather ambivalent about the discount though. Good for FFG and bad for other local shops. But given that FFG EC only seels its own products and that of which it is related to (GW to name a prominent one) it shouldnt cut too much into the profits of other LFGS's locally.
Though I guess we shall see what the other FLGS's who carry your product feel about that.
Rental Warhammer Armies!
You got a chaos dwarf one? :)
Hmm, I remember when they opened they said they were not going to offer game discounts, as they didn't want to compete with local game stores. *sigh* Well, at least our store offers free wifi to everyone without having to buy a membership.
