Why I Love Mom-and-pop Shops

Pictured below is arguably one of the sweetest gaming deals I’ve ever landed. Thanks to Mario’s, a local game store, I purchased a slightly used Gameboy Micro with Super Mario Advance 2 for a mere $79 bucks. In an effort to compete with the big boys, the store only sells used games. But they have a huge selection and every now and then some incredible sales. Even better than Ebay on occasion.

So run over to your local mom-and-pop shop and see what they offer. And in the process, stick it to the man (cough, cough: EB Games, Walmart, etc). ‘Tis the season for sweet deals indeed.
