I placed my first order with the new owners of game Surplus, the Smuckers, over the weekend, made a change and received confirmations of everything within a couple of hours. I received the (well packaged) box yesterday.

Superb service. Best of luck to Velma and family.

I had a preorder before they bought the store, and got it just fine after they bought the store. Smooth as silk. When they get a hard-to-find import, buy it!

Thanks for mentioning this! I wonder if I can get Velma's cell number, like I had for Thor... Best wishes to the old owners, and the new.

They always packed games among the best of the best. Glad it's true now.

I'm picking up an order this weekend at the Amish Country Store of the Trenton Farmer's Market.

I communicated with Velma via email and her responses were all sent within 15 minutes and quite detailed. Thumbs up!

Man, they sold the store? I had no idea.

I'm a little upset by this news. I can no longer shout "By the hammer of Thor!" when my packages arrive.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Wait, what?
What happened to Thor et al.?!?!?!

I hope they will continue to provide a good selection of imports and at reasonable prices.
