UPDATED — Everything old is new again at Game On, which has been in the Hutchinson Mall for almost five years and now is going to have a second location at Chisholm Trail Center-Outlet & Retail Shops.
The store, which will open in 1,200 square feet next month, buys, sells and trades video games, DVDs and game systems. It also sells iPods, skateboards and body jewelry.
“A lot of our business is the old, vintage games that are harder to find,” says owner Jeff Boll referring to such games as Nintendo.
“Now everybody’s older and wants to go back and play the games they had as kids.”
Game On sells new items as well.
Boll says he had to decide on a second store in either Newton or Great Bend.
“We just get a lot of customers from both places,” he says.
Newton won in part because it’s closer.
Boll likely will consider a third store down the road.
“Haven’t really thought that far ahead,” he says. “It would probably be a year or two.”
