We are Peter and Sue and we own Gas Games , a small retail games business in Pakenham, Victoria. We have in the past 3 years built up a community of gaming families and hobbyists that we have come to love. It goes without saying that the past 12 or so months have been difficult for so many people, including us and our business.
Not only has Covid impacted us but we now find a number of large retailers, that brought traffic to the area have left and there is a bigger problem with a long term development starting in June that will disrupt foot traffic in our immediate area for quite sometime.
It has become apparent that we can no longer continue our store in its present form and location. Because we love what we do so much we just cant bring ourselves to give up. So we have decided on a new model for the store. We want to move the shop to a more affordable location in Pakenham (which we have found and don't want to miss out on) and add a coffee shop along with play space and regular gaming events for everyone.
Possibly the largest hurdle we have is that the Covid impact to us has been a financial one. To relocate and build up a new store is an expense that we just cant achieve without your help. We need to renovate the new site and purchase (second hand) Cafe equipment and fittings and to buy more stock.
Please support us and help us realize our new dream and to continue to bring the advantages of board gaming and good coffee, to the community that we love.
