Drexoll Games - Store Closure Summer 2024




After 21 amazing years of serving the gaming community, we are packing up our games, closing our West 4th Ave store, and moving on to new adventures. Don't be sad. Most new businesses don't make it past 5 years, so we are very proud, and we have our dedicated staff and customers to thank!

We plan to close our doors on July 31, 2024.

Starting June 1st, we will be liquidating our inventory in stages. Drop by often to see what treasures you may find, and to enjoy the final days of glory.

Our regular in-store Friday night gaming is suspended as of now, but stay tuned for announcements about special events.

Please be sensitive toward our staff, and do not inquire about the reasons for closing. The sole reason for our closure is that although we survived the pandemic, and renewed our 5-year lease in 2021 with enthusiasm, the building was subsequently sold, and the new owners of our building at 2880 West 4th served us an eviction notice under the Demolition Clause in our lease. It has not been a very fun plot twist. We have sought other options over the last 10 months, but are unable to find a similar space and location at rates that would allow us to continue our business.

Thank you so much for your support, and please buy some games. You can stock up now for Christmas, because when this December comes around... well... it won't be the same.

We'll miss you.

Sincerely, Drexoll Games founders (Darcy and Tamara), and staff, Lise (18 years, starting at our Poco location, then manager of our Kits location), Timmy (9 years), Nathan, plus our rag tag crew of Christmas helper monkeys.
