OK. I came, I saw......
What a bust!
Opning day and they were already closed by 6pm! They did provide me a calendar though. Their hours surprised me:
They don't open til 1pm most days - but they are closed by 8pm (closed for lunch from 4-4:30pm and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). They do open by Noon on Saturday, but close by 6pm on Sunday.
So if you are a working man and are willing to skip dinner, you might be able to spend a little time there during the week before closing time. My work weeks end on Saturday, so that day is largely out for me. So Sunday afternoons are the only window of opportunity for me.
Overall, a very underwhelming experience.
I may be able to find some time tomorrow to try a visit again. We'll see...........
The store is not set up as a tournament place just yet. If more people start showing interest in doing that I HIGHLY suggest emailing GW
customer support and tell them you really like the store and wish it had a day or so set aside to just play and get more people into/familiar with the game. So far as the hours the store is The First GW
store in all of Oklahoma so they are not going to be a 9-9 store till more people show them a profit or demand is there for that. Remember GW
is still a business not just a building to hold your tables.
I was there on Saturday and loved the range of stuff they had and was shown on their computer that if they did not have it they could order it from GW
.com and it would be shipped to their store. No shipping charge of other fees for this cool option, you order they call when it comes in.
The only thing I found was the idiots who proceded to make fans and hobbiest like myself look horrible with the never ending "Why can I not get Forge World here?","What do you mean I can not bring my Apoc Army here and play all day, your a GW
store."," Why did this or that get put into/exculuded from the new rules?" most of these were asked in mildly annoying to almost hostile tones. I felt so bad for the woman who was the new manager and had to take the crap from people when she would have to say things like " I dont know" or "We are not allowed to." Almost forgot the few socially awkward/rejects who when the woman who runs the store would greet them and offer to help them would just look at her and walk over to her trainer and ask to be helped instead of letting her because apparently "she must not have known what to do right?" Bull I was so close to telling theses rejects to be a man and answer the lady or atleast have the balls to tell her you didn't know how to act around not digitized/animed women.
This ends my rant as I have diverged from my original topic. I closing OKC guys we need to step up and make this store a success, if we show GW
there is a strong fan base and profit in OKC then they will give us more options and cool offerings at the store.
