So my partner and I have been massive lovers and players of card games such as Yu-Hi-Oh, Pokémon, Magic and so much more since a young age!
We want to open the only shop in town and within a 20mile radius that can offer walk in table top gaming, a wide selection of collectable cards, collectable items, Funko pops and more! Along side this we will be offering jobs which are needed during this current climate along side a card grading service which can only be done online and not 100% efficient.
We are also talking with someone about having a VR booth for people to use when they come into the shop! Including the first of its kind a AR board game!! Yes AR board game!
We have already done some market research in our local town and it's safe to say that this shop is very well sought after. In town we have a lot of Yu-Gi-Oh, MTG and D&D players. We used to have a gentleman that hired a hall out once a week but due to timings and the hall wasn't well heated people stopped going. So to be able to have this sort of thing going again with also a store front. One question that was asked a few times and I will quote "Will you be doing coffee so us wags can come along?" and the answer is YES! We do want to do Hot drinks, cold drinks and snacks.
My partner works at a confectionary wholesaler so getting snacks drinks and more wont be an issue at all!
We are also going through our Konami Judges tests so we can hold local tournaments. We have friends already who are judges for Pokemon and MTG.
We have also contacted the following companies to become official stockists Konomi, Funko, Warhammer and Tilt 5.
The money you help us raise will be used to purchase a shop in our local high-street, buy in stock, furnish the store, decorate and basic advertising.
Every penny spent will be used to get the shop up and running, and start to give our little town some diversity with its high street shops.
