ThinkGeek is probably one of my favourite online shops to scoop up the latest “geeky” swag. From collectibles, to clothing, to household goods – this place is a Nerd Haven no matter what fandom you are in. So imagine how much my wallet wept when I realised that the online gamer loot heaven is taking their goods to the streets? That’s right – more and more retail locations are opening up around the US.
“Gee, I wish I had a place where I could visit ThinkGeek IRL and check out some of the stuff in person.” WISH GRANTED! We’ve expanded beyond the bounds of time, space, and the Internet to summon into existence our own retail stores!
Remember my life-size BB-8 Plushie that I wrote about in my collectibles list for Star Wars Day? That’s where I got it, ThinkGeek exclusive and it feels so good (come on, I couldn’t be the only one that sung that?)
As of right now, there are only a few locations available but more are promised on the way!
- Orlando, Florida
- West Nyack, New York
- DFW, Texas
- New York City, New York
They are even hosting live events at their stores much like a lot of comic and table top stores do, so this really is a Geek win all around. If you live near any of the above mentioned locations, make sure to check out their World of Warcraft Cosplay and Trivia night on Friday, June 24th from 17:00 – 19:00. Raid on!
