**EDITED** Announcement About Prices!

GopherDave's picture

Hey, Folks...

Over the course of the next couple of weeks you may start noticing small red markings on our price tags slowly overtaking the store. That is because we are in the very beginning phases of a 10% price roll-back for pretty much everything in the store.

In short, if you see a red mark on the price tag, that is the Gopher price for that item. If there isn't a red mark on the tag, you can expect to get a 10% discount at the register for that item. Basically, the red marks are there to help *US* keep track of what we have discounted in the system, and what we haven't yet.

Some prices have not and will not be changed. Mostly accessories like sleeves and card boxes, as those markups are pretty small and we were discounting on those items already.

What's this mean for the Military/Police/Fire discount of 10% that we had been giving for the last year or so? It pretty much means that everyone gets it now.

Please be patient with us, as this will take a while to get done throughout the whole store...

Peace... GopherDave

 

Apologies...

I apologize for a total lack of udates on the site for a bit save New Arrivals. Over the last few months I have been dealing with some health issues of moderate magnitude, and so also has my father...

When I haven't been trying to take care of myself, I've been trying to help hold my family together, and the store has been pretty much on the back burner as of late. I'd love to say that this time of hardship was completely over, but I'd be lying. I, with the help of Skribl and MrsGopher, am still dealing with things at a certain level. These happenings are not ending anytime soon, and that has got me distracted from things that are store-oriented.

My apologies. You deserve better, and I *AM* trying... All I ask is for your patience and maybe some support... Thank you.

Hey, Gophers!

This weekend is the 43rd annual Winter War Gaming Convention over at the Hawthorn Suites in Champaign! What's that mean for you? Well... It means while we will be open on Friday (the 29th) for FNM, a good chunk of our stock will be at the convention. Second, it also means that the store itself will be closed both Saturday (the 30th) and Sunday (the 31st)! Plan accordingly...

...or you could just join us there! It's a heck of a great time!

CANCELLED

GopherDave's picture

Hey, All...

Due to a couple of factors (not finding a Level 2 Judge, and an emergency in the extended family), we have to cancel the MtG: PPTQ event that was scheduled for this Saturday.

Our apologies, but circumstances have come together to make this an impossibility to do at this time. This should in no way affect other events for the future.

Apologies,
                Gopher Dave
