    Isn't there anyone near you who can help you with a spell check? I know you got dyslexia, but it would be highly appreciated if you'd let it be checked by someone.

    I don't really know what your question is.

    Hobby shops, all hobby shops , well say 88% of them. Why is it that they are in such bad neighborhoods. I look at the picture <of the store> if cool trains and not bad, but some you take your life <into> your hands.
    Don't sit there, tell me some stories, funny stories or whatever about your local hobby shops WKJR

    Probably that's the places that have the best rent for the business model. Any higher class establishment and the prices start moving up. Around here, it seems that all the stores that were in the nicer retail locations are all closed. The ones that are in a little bit more run down locations seem to be doing fine.

    That, or the market forces them to areas that won't complain about the smell, noise, loitering, etc.

    It's a well-established fact that making/selling games does *not* make you rich. I think most game shops are in "poorer" or more inaccessible areas of town because that's where the more affordable rent is. Both the shops I go to in Mannheim are in slightly less salubrious locations, but at least they're still in the centre of town, and one is very conveniently close to a nice lil sushi restaurant that does great lunch deals! So it's not all bad. I like to go to the independent retailers; they're pretty used to me by now, they generally have a good selection and they've been really helpful when I've been looking for something specific.

    I just love that word.

    Salubrious.

    Such a damn good word.

    Here in Australia they all seem to be in nice enough places, not many in the CBD's (city centres) and helpfull staff as well, even the games workshop stores which are generally located in malls, dont seem to have the strange collections of "Uber gamers" that they have in the UK.

    Default The real menace

    I noticed while I was in England that most of the Game & Hobby shops are in middle class areas of town. St Albans had a couple right in the middle of a commercial shopping area.

    Here in Alabama, the place is stuck in a poorer section of town, but at least that part of town is clean and the people are friendly. The biggest nightmare I have concerning hobby & game shops are the patrons. A combination of Body Odor, breach of personal space, and the insistence by certain members that if you're not a marine or chaos you're playing a panzy army is enough to ratchet up anyone's homicidal instincts.

    When we had a non GW games shop in Cov it was in the city centre. It's now closed down but I don't think I've ever seen a gaming shop that wasn't somewhere pretty central. Of course just because I haven't seen any in the kind of neighbourhoods WKJR is on about doesn't mean they aren't there.

    By the way there is a spellcheck button in the top right corner of the reply box. You need to download ispell to make it work but it seems to provide a link to it. It might help people read your posts better matey.

    well you all have to admit that they are out of the way and well "sort off" seedy, some are in nice neighbourhoods. The place I will be going to Map Quest <google earth?> had that ground view thing, and all <I saw were> old brick buildings and construction, It looks like an industrial park at a dead end! Some places - well its ok people look at you funny like "Theres a right nerdy boy getting blank" and "What do you want in this neighbourhood?" Its me I guess! Well more stories Thanks WKJR

    Well YES! I have a dragon< A Spellchecker I guess?>, but <I> just dont have it working right yet. got to practice with it and add lots of words. I will get the hang of it - Bear with me -So why do you think that shops of all types are in bad nieghbourhoods? - WKJR

    OK I am a "Rockos maden life" <?> fan, if <You have> seen the show, its rather adapted, and the shop he works in is a comic book shop.
    Now all comic book shops we all know are in the worse nieghbourhoods!
    Then gaming or hobby shops came along - have I ever seen a comic shop in a good locality? - No I don't think so! OK so some bad places , some good! "Macks Cavalcade" is in a horrible place - Hawkers, porn shops, and bad food!. Go to GW and Comics and you can get a busted butt on what to spend your cash on first.
    Heck one time I was going to a shop and the Cops are next door arresting the massage parlour <Staff> (If I knew I would have been in there nudge nudge wink wink)
    Heck I have no cash for it <anyway> after I spent it all in the Game Store. Like I say its me or neutral <?> ground. The elevator is broken, the stairs are killers, and right around the corner on the weekend - porn flea market!
    They are not all bad - Chinese buffet <?> near one. Love of postickers<?????> well I just go on...Thanks AZ and all - More stories! WKJR

    This doesnt affect me at all, I dont game and all the best shops are online. They are cheaper and have a wider selection of stuff.

    Their are only 2 non gw model shops + 1 comic books store in cardiff that im aware of, the comic book store and one of the model shops are in town where all the shops are and the other model shop is in a comfortably wealthy residential area. Maybe its an american thing

    i was in a comic shop one time where a guy came in all out of breath said to the owner...HOLD THIS..... and ran outside. i saw it was a gun.....and the owner just shook his head and walked to the backroom to put said item away. apparently the owner knew this person or else he WOULDNT HAVE TAKEN A GUN..... least to say....never frequented that one again.

    dragon = "Dragon Naturally Speaking" software?

    I guess I'm very lucky that the FLGS here in Guelph, Ontario used to be on the main street beside the vegetarian cafe, and when it moved, it was to the downtown mall where the fancy chocolatier and boutiques are. Pretty safe locale, which is good because 90% of their custom is minivan moms (and dads) bringing their kidlets. Any whiff of unsavoriness and I bet that crowd evaporates faster than a Fanta spill off a morbidly obese Yu-Gi-Oh player's sweatshirt.
