Check the store locator on Games Workshop's website for the Cincinnati area. Looks like Scale Creep is about to get a new neighbor.

You did notice that it's an actual Games Workshop store?

Won't it be difficult to establish a store that charges full price for GW stuff when we've got a number of stores close by that do at least 20%?

I think the store will do good, not great.
It is in a high traffic area for one...

The one thing it will have is stock... Or it should... There are those of us that wanna go in see something and buy... and others will not even visit because of the lack of a discount.

I think this is good for the area and I am looking forward to seeing it!

according to the Hyde Park Plaza property management website it will be located down by the Biggs, approx 1100 sq feet.
for me it's pretty convenient as I stop off at Hyde Park every 2 weeks to visit Shaan indian restaurant, so for the occasional pot of paint it will be perfect. But as others have stated no discount or even coupons like Hobbytown sometimes sends me.

Oddly enough if I was to put a store anywhere in Cincinnati, I'd put it a similar location. Not sure what they're paying for the plaza, but I don't think I'd put it in there, the rent is probably pretty high. There's an empty store front just off I-71 in Norwood that would be a much cheaper (and better) location for an indie.

The store's Facebook page.

well the shop is still not "Visible" (I'm a little supprised they didn't capitolize on the holiday...)
the Address just accounts for a run of 5-6 store fronts
there ARE 3 fronts still listed as 'for lease' so it could be any one of them
next to the Radio Shack

the photo in the FB page is stock from some where else...
I seriously doubt the Plaza owners are going to allow the GW styled Facade

According to the addresses on Google Maps it should be the storefront just to the left of the Chinese restaurant. It is 3870 Paxton Avenue Suite C while the store's address is showing as 3870 Paxton Avenue Suite B.

Went to the store today, they are open now!!!

And i was the first to buy from the store I have now been the first to purchase product at 4 stores!!! Art of War, Eastside Games & Cards, Your Gamers Corner, and now GW store... I feel special...

Anywho Steve is the Manager and seems like a great guy. Talked his ear off a bit. Tomorrow they have a space Marine Painting contest, A scratch build model, and mini 500 point contest...

Get out there and let them know you saw this on CAG!
