There are some of you that don't know of anything other that corporation game stores such as Gamestop or Walmart or maybe even K-mart. These are not the only ones but they are some of the only ones that were around where I grew up.On the other side there are the Local game stores that are kind of like mom and pop stores but owned by one person or persons but not controlled by some board of directors or anything like that.
Of coarse there are other places to buy games such as online but thats if you are willing to wait for shipping (and most Corporation game stores also have websites anyway).
What I want to know is which one you support and if it applies which one would you rather support?
I would prefer to support a local game store but I don't know of any near where I grew up so if I bought games they came from Gamestop or Walmart. Here are some pros and cons that my friend and I came up with.
1) Games always in stock
2) Prices always set and known
3) Buys/trades all items
2) Workers there are annoying
1) Can negotiate prices (Buying and Selling/Trading)
2) Very good customer service
3) Might have rare items
1) Not everywhere
2) Might not have some items in stock
