    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.......

    Thank you all very much, your support is awesome, I hope to see many of you this week at CGE, I will have some Tshirts with my logo on them to give away as well so if you are a DP member and see a guy with tshirts say hi. I will be the guy wearing the royal blue shirt with a small white Play Again logo.

    The response to the store has been great, in addition to the premade costumes, I am really surprised on how many people want retro games,collectables, smoothies and cosplay costumes here.
    It seems the custom costume service is really getting a head of steam I am currently setting up costumes for people who want to be Xena, InuYasha, Sailor Moon, Solid Snake, Kikyo. I figured some gamers would like cosplay and anime but it is a pleasant surprise to see how many in such a short time.

    I have this girl and her friends that come into my store who only dresses in guy costumes so one day she comes in as Phoenix Wright another day Kakashi (Naruto series) or any number of other characters. On the other hand it seems that most guys in my store want to try one of the many schoolgirl costumes. I have to say people really are fun here and really make my 7 day 14 hour days fly by!

    In any case thanks again folks and if there is any games you are looking for or if you need a cosplay let me know, those are my two most favorite things! and yes that includes you too Push Upstairs! hee hee

    All of you Texas folks who are thinking of coming in, be sure to let me know, I want to make sure I give you a Tshirt and a smoothie on me!

    Sweet! My girlfriend's dad lives and works in Port A (parasailing operation on the island), so we're down that way a pretty fair amount. I will definitely be stopping by to check out your place!!

    From one game store owner to another, congrats and good luck. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and maybe I can be of some help

    I have some interest at my store for anime and manga and am curious how you go about stocking those items? Do you have a distributor?

    Very nice. It looks a bit homey, although you may attract some otakus with that sign.

    Why do all these awesome stores open far, far away? I want to visit! Psst.. Do you have a copy of halloween for the atari? I like that game.
