I understand that they're closing the online store, but is the club being closed as well?

The local store is definitely closing. As for the club, we're not 100% sure yet. We want to keep it running, but we need to figure out how we can do that.

We'll let you know once we know.

I really hope the club is staying around. It's a great thing for me and my buds after school. I mean I could end up on drugs now. I blame GW. Class action lawsuit!!

I agree, I think that the store may be done, but keep the club open. I'd pay like a membership fee if it'd help. As I can't drive, the nearest place to go is St.Catherines, which is way farther out and somewhere I just won't be able to get to to play. I love this hobby, and I love the shop, so please just have it be a club, so we can go in and play. Assuming your keeping the place for batreps ect. the rent will still be paid, and membership fees would help with that.

I live in another country but I'd buy a membership to keep a gaming area open. There really aren't enough places where people can go for good clean fun and it would be a shame to see the people up there lose their game home.

We will still have our location and our website as we will be making videos and running the Vault.

I hope to be able to run some sort of club, but it might not happen right away. We'll do our best to get one going though.

We have over 30 members in our Niagara Warmahordes group alone. There are many local players who haven't joined it, as well as many players who play that other game system. We all congregate around the MWG shop and look forward to more news about the potential for establishing a relationship between the regional gaming club and MWG. :)

I second Celedor's repsonse. Would be great to have the club remain if possible. It's the best gaming environment I have experienced out of all the semi local ones I have been to so far. Great group of wargamers for some awesome gaming times.

worse comes to worst, and this is also a type of question as well an let me know if ya agree, we could pay a type of fee to help pay the rent and such to keep the club open. Helps keep things going and won't cost much to upkeep as it'll be there anyway with the building.

If we did keep it going, we wouldn't charge anything. The rent alone just for the store space is $1,000 / month, so if we keep the club going, we need to be able to justify it.

I think we will be able to justify it, I'll just have to figure out how we can run it with minimal employee costs.
