I saw a note that Hastings is filing bankruptcy. Will that impact WizKids stuff?

Boo! I loved Hastings. We don't have one local, but whenever we drive from Georgia to Michigan, we stop half way and there is a Hastings. That always marks our mid point and we would always find some new stuff we didn't need. My kids loved it too. Sad days indeed.

That's too bad. I have fond memories of visiting their store in Flagstaff the many times I passed through there.

Maybe this will make WizKids reconsider selling their stuff on OLGS.

Or maybe they will find other ways to drive customers away in an attempt to make more money to make up for this.

Well if there are less B&M stores in the near future, which is more likely every passing year, that maybe they are going to have to play ball with sites like CSI.

Confused by the comment that WK will have to play ball with CSI. CSI already carry their stuff and at a significant discount.

Yeah, I subscribed to this thread hoping it would make sense and it still hasn't.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with how OLGSs outcompete B&M stores who tend to charge MSRP while OLGSs do deep discount and don't have to charge sales tax.

And how this means that any day now all B&M game stores will close. That will then lead to the dear of the hobby games industries and we won't have any more games to play.

At least that's what I've been hearing for at least 10 years.
