When I drive to and from work I pass by two game stores and there's another within a mile from my office. The latter is a new GW that moved from a busy high rent shopping mall to a large strip-mall, shopping center as seems to be their new business strategery. Part of there new retail business plan also seems to be to keep their new locations severely under staffed. I'm not talking about poor customer service, I'm talking about the damn store not being open when its supposed to. The place opened in June of this year and I was excited to have it so close work - I could swing by on my lunch breaks and pick up a paint or magazine, yeah! I've tried about four times now and the place hasn't been open. Doors locked, lights off, nobody home.
Screw them, I'll go to the local independent retailer, Brookhurst Hobbies, and give them my money instead. Nice store and staff, I've never had a problem there, check them out if your travels take you near Garden Grove, CA - it's right by Disneyland! Now I ain't no business wiz like Dethtron, but my daddy runs a successful small business so I know some basic concepts, one of which is you don't fucking make money if people can't purchase products or services from you.

You don't make money, then you're a fucking douchebag."
