Hey All,

Okay we are going to Orlando on Friday and I wanted to stop into the Cool Stuff Store. However, I tried that last time we went to Florida and didn't realize that there are TWO locations.

Please, tell me, which is the "big" location...the "warehouse" location?

I was like "i better not forget this..." and of course I promptly forgot...

also probably since the last time you've gone... the Winter Park location (where the warehouse used to be before they bought the lazy-boy building in Maitland) is now closed... and they essentially moved it to Waterford Lakes to be closer to UCF

they do have some ding/dent I believe... plus if demo copies of a bunch of games if you want to try to get a game going

for base poster though who is from out of state... their best bet is to make free ship threshold and have it shipped to NY then you won't pay the 7% sales tax nor have to lug it home

talk about practical... if you've never been to C.S. before some folks may be disappointed to find unlike a small LGS, only a relatively small subset of their titles they stock are actually in the "show room" (most of the retail store is actually rows of folding tables and chairs for their various gaming events)

on top of that you place your order no different than if you were home... there is a row of computers against a wall where you go and login to www.coolstuffinc.com and place your order!

And as a bonus, you get to commit tax fraud at the same time. Win/Win.

lots of laughs but it is definitely not tax fraud for me... and it's definitely not defrauding FL

Unless an individual lives in a state that has a 0% interest rate, not claiming the Use Tax on your year-end taxes is certainly fraud. Not fraud of FL, but fraud of the destination state.
