    Default Former Game Store Employees, Share Your Stories!

    Ex-employees of game shops and classic game stores, please share your anecdotes of your times working at such places. Truly there must be some real gems!

    I tried finding it, but at the time, the thread was too elusive.

    Limited to game store specifically?
    I worked electronics at a dept store for 5.5 years and could probably come up with some videogame related tales.

    worked at one for nine months. nothing really that interesting. the place was usually dead and Im surprised it didnt tank the business which had 5 locations at the time. It was a fun hang out and a nice place to relax. very quiet and peaceful. there arent many places like that in the city. i had fun just pacing the store, ocassionally alphabetizing games and making it look like i was working.

    Classic Discussions got merged into this sub-forum when the forum as a whole was condensed.

    Is there any way to distinguish between topics that came from Classic Discussions and those that didn't?
