Brand New Game Store in Edmond
« on: September 26, 2008, 11:44:09 am »
Hello OK Gamers,

I have been lurking on the site for a couple of days and just wanted to introduce myself and my store. My name is Mark and I am one of the owners of a new game store in Edmond called Play N Trade. We are the first store of this franchise in the state after opening our doors on 9/1/08. Play N Trade now has over 200 franchise stores nationwide.

We are the only store in the OKC metro (and quite possibly the state) where you can TRY THE GAME BEFORE YOU BUY, regardless of whether it is new or used. We have 8 HD monitors set up in the store, all with different consoles set up on them. Unlike some of our competitors, we love the older console games as well as current gen stuff. We carry, in stock, games as far back as the Atari 2600 and take the older stuff in trade as well.

Speaking of trade...some of our customers have already told us that we have given them much better trade credit than the 5000 store gorilla (if you know who I mean).

Because of the TVs around the store we are also a new destination for tournaments. We will be holding our first tourney on 10/25. See that part of the forum for details.

This will be the only post I will make pushing the store without being asked. I have signed up on OKG for the specific purpose of having us become a part of the gaming community, not just using the site as a free advertising avenue. I look forward to posting ALOT in the future

Store info....

We've got a pretty good starting selection of NES and N64 but we still are light on SNES. We haven't gotten alot of trade-ins on that just yet!

Usually give in-store credit, but if it is a hard to find system (i.e.Atari 2600, Nintendo Famicom, Sega Master System, Turbo Graphx) Yes we would pay cash. We would for current gen consoles as well but not the handhelds.

However, you always get more in credit than you would in a cash transaction.

What? Does nobody else travel from store to store to smell them? I can't be the only one.

I wont lie... Smell does not affect me. I go to the store to get the best deals, not how it smells.

Well I guess if it smells good would be a bonus.
