Humble Beginnings, Large Hopes
We started planning Play It Again Games in January/February of 2017, as a response to what happened to another retro type of game store that had went under in our area. We started with what we wanted to do, make a place for gamers to go and play as well as be the place where you could find games of all sorts. We had wanted to have board games, card games, and all video games, but realized we should start small.
So instead we focused on a getting a place and getting the basic supplies for video games, since that’s the current need as there isn’t many places to get anything older than a year or two’s worth. We found our current location in May and had to remodel it some to fit our needs, opening only the front section for playing and sales.
In June of 2017, we opened up the rest of the store, being fully opened by that first weekend. To expand our name, we are on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Twitch, and our own site. We play old games and new on the Youtube and Twitch, to help showcase some old favorites and discover new ones.
Even now, we continue to grow and expand our selection of games and supplies for the retro and newer gamers’ need. We are trying to look out for our customer’s needs so feel free to make comments, suggestions, or place an order with us. Or stop by and play on the many systems we have available in store with any games on the shelf or bring your own.
