Great store: Friendly Local Gaming Store atmosphere. I've been going to Bonnie Brae for decades (back to when they were actually located in the Bonnie Brae neighborhood, before they moved to Englewood). Originally I went for the games and miniatures, but quickly got hooked on the community: The conversation back when Chester Harland managed it was always stimulating. It didn't take long to get involved in the gaming. The shop has always had a gaming area and back in the 90s that was used for open gaming on Friday and Saturday nights. Sometimes they did Sunday as well and for many years they had a Saturday house campaign during the day. Since they moved to Englewood, it has only gotten better. The gaming area has only gotten bigger. The snacks and sodas have gotten more expensive, but it is now possible to game for 16 hours straight (I do it every Saturday) without leaving the store. (Not that you have to. The area is teeming with restaurants, grocery stores, and coffee shops.) Numerous role-playing groups make Bonnie Brae their home: Fourth Edition, Realms of Cthulu, Shadowrun, and more. The Yu-Gi-oh group on Saturdays has given way to a Magic The Gathering singles business as the anchor for the event-based games, and many are represented. Special events and evening game groups are there almost every weekday night. And competition for space on the Bonnie Brae calendar is intense. The Magic people compete with the train gamers for space on Saturdays, along with some role-playing. Speaking of the train gamers, they play 18XX games every Saturday and have one of the most consistent places to play XX games in the country (maybe the world). Multiple 18XX games can be found most Saturdays (although sometimes they will play other board games). Tthe oldtimers still play board games every Saturday night (a tradition going back at least 20 years). Downside: The political discussions have gotten less interesting over the years.

I chose this store because the reviews were uniformly good (compared to uniformly bad through 50/50). But I kinda wondered if was really as one-sided as it appeared. When I got to the store, the raves about the customer service turned out to 100% true. Keegan helped me with all my problems, whether they had to do with him making a sale or not. When he didn't know an answer, he did not pretend to know or offer an alternative that would cost me money. He went and got the right answer. He offered me plans that would cost me more than I am currently paying Verizon and he looked at my usage stats and suggested plans that would cost me less. When I left the store, there were convenient chairs and tables to try the product on my laptop. When I had trouble configuring the new hardware, I took it back inside and he helped me with the problem. (Even though the sale had already been made and I could have probably figured it out at home.)
