Game Store Report

I was looking at the Games Workshop website, and I found the store locator.  I decided to see what it showed, and this was the result...
These are the stores within 50 miles of my location.  The one store in Irving is no longer there, so I don't know how up to date the list is.  I'm sure the stores request to be put on the list, but when they go out of business I imagine contacting GW is not high on their priority; which I can understand.  I counted 25 independent stores, 3 GW stores.  I didn't count the store I know is closed.

I guess there are no gaming clubs for GW games in this area.  I'm not even sure there is still a GW store in Grapevine Mills Mall, because I haven't been in a while.  I need to check that out soon.  I was also surprised to discover there were two other GW stores so close.  Well, Denton isn't that close, but I'm still surprised there's one there.

I actually can't remember when the last time I was in a comic book or gaming store.   I think it's been over eight years, or maybe even longer.

The nice thing about the store locator is that it shows the independent retailers, and if you're looking for a FLGS it certainly might be of some use.


  1. At least you have a lot of choices.

  2. True, but I think some of these are no longer open. I'm going to start calling the stores and find out. Of course there may be a couple of stores that are open, but not listed.
