    Default My new Store Play Again Classic Video Games is Open!!!

    Well it has taken over a year of planning and development but my Retro Video Game store is finally open in Corpus Christi TX.

    The name of my store is Play Again Classic Video Games and while I have a webpage it is really not developed yet. (www.playagaincvg.com) as soon as I can get someone in my store to develop the page I hope to have a nice one with web shopping. I did however attach some pics here, please excuse the mess these were taken a few days before grand opening!

    I wanted to thank all of the nice people who supported me over the last year during the very trying planning year of 2006, your support was awesome and just a great reflection on the type of people that are on this board.

    We sell all kinds of games and systems from Atari to Xbox, as well as finding arcade games and pinball machines for peoples home at a very reasonable price.

    We offer classic and modern video games as well as console repair, anime, manga, figures, pachinko for play, coffee, smoothies and coming out of right field cosplay costumes both premade and custom made.

    So yes if you wish to be Mario, Princess Peach or just a Japanese schoolgirl we can hook ya up!

    I am currently planning on having competitions on our HD projector on the wall that will cover street fighter games as well as retro games.. pinball tournaments, anime nights, cosplay parties and basically a whole bunch of stuff that people seem to dig here.

    So if there are any DP'ers in the South Texas Corpus Christi area, please feel free to come by and visit and your first smoothie is on me!

    Looks nice, now if only someone on these forums would open a store within a drive range from me I might be able to visit in person

    As soon as my wife and I can make a trip to Corpus we'll be there. Galveston is getting a bit tired anyway. I've been meaning to see more of the Texas coast so the trip will be a two-fer.

    Congratz to you Marco

    How did you know i secretly wished to be a Japanese schoolgirl? You must hook me up.


    Seriously, I like the look of your store. If I was within a decent distance to your store I would drop by.

    If you ever get some classic EGM mags in there shoot me a PM. I'd gladly pay shipping.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    Nice looking store! I'm in Oregon, but if I ever find myself in Corpus Christi for some reason I'll try and drop by. Best of luck!

    Marco,

    That's AWESOME! Man, I used work in the Corpus area for the longest time, wish I could come visit! I'll be sure to pass the info on to my buddies who live in that area!

    Must be a great feeling to get that off the ground!

    I used to play video games, but then They started putting voices in the games which told me to do bad things.

    Now I just skip the video games and do the bad things.

    Nice! A new, non corporate gaming store in Texas is always a welcome sight! And like IM said above, it ain't too far away from Houston!

    You might just see me and some friends in the near future!

    Now...if we could only get a shop like this in Houston.......

    Dang, 1,893 miles away.... It looks awesome, though.

    I swear, one of these days I'm going to make a cross-country trip and visit all the great classic gaming shops out there. It'd be perfect, too, because I could end it with Digital Press (I live in California). Of course, in order for it to be worth it, I'd need a lot more money than I have now

    I had the pleasure of meeting Marco and visiting his store this past week and wanted to bump this back up to the top and say thanks to him! He's running a top notch operation and went out of his way to make me feel welcome in his store.

    The only bad thing I have to report is thanks to him, I'm now searching desperately for a source for Ramune!!

    Thanks again Marco and I'll be sure to stop by on my next trip to Port A!!!

    Congratulations on the opening! I'm way up here in Minnesota, so I don't think I will be able to drop by anytime soon. I wish you the best of luck though!
