The Tradition Continues...

Brett is away so the inmates are running the asylum.  As we always do Brian and Scott made some drastic store layout changes while Brett has been on vacation.  We are only about 1/3 of the way done but the store layout has really changed, thanks to some awesome racks we just got from a local business (well ex-business).

Thanks to all the gamers that helped us bring the racks into the store on Sunday, and thanks to Dave for his help late Monday night.  It looks like we can get most of our planned changes done before Brett comes back Wednesday.  I bet he'll be surprised :)

Anyway, stop in and check out the new fixtures and tell us what you think.
