Starting A New Game Store....

... No not me.  My life as we know it would be over if I contemplated that!!

The awesome Gary Ray over at Black Diamond Games in Concord, California has recently started collating and posting a HUGE amount of intelligent planning and thinking in general about the process you should go through if you're looking at Starting A New Game Store.

Whilst some of his content is U.S.A. centric I'd say 99% of what he says translates to other regions of the world.

In my opinion Gary is a visionary of how hobby retail, specifically game hobby retail, needs to be run.  Invariably during my tenure at KOA I referred to his blog for insight and guidance when things weren't going well and ultimately it was his blog that helped me come to the conclusion that I needed to cease trading as KOA.  Well that and the mountain of debt that I acquired and continue to pay off...

So if you're interested in bricks & mortar retail in general and specifically in how the game hobby retail business operates you'd benefit from reading Gary's blog.

Part 1 is here - http://blackdiamondgames.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/starting-new-game-store-motivation-part.html

He's currently (at time of writing) up to Part 10.
