How have people found the new MilSims?

I've been quite happy so far. The staff are a lot friendlier and their communication has been improved over email and Facebook. The stock levels on their website are still a bit all over the place but I'm guessing that will take a while to sort out.

The prices seems to have gone up but I could be wrong about that.

The biggest plus for me is that they are now five minutes drive from my home

Been in there a few times since they opened and the customer service is much better/friendlier than the 'old' milsims.

I was sad when they went offline as they were my go to game store; they almost always had the best price. So I'm stoked that the new MilSims is back. While they're no longer always the cheapest, they still beat most sites. And the communication and friendliness is way better! The new MilSims is definitely a win!

Been in-store, was excited to see so much stock so well organised. Still some publishers missing, but they're on the way!

They're back to being my go-to store.

I'm continuing to not have any luck getting them to respond to email or facebook messages, unfortunately.

Milsims and Joe Dodgy's Dice and Games are my goto FLGS, the later owns the former. A significant part of this years purchases have been made successfully from them including internet orders and purchases in store.

Mitch, Harley and the whole Milsims team are highly responsive and quick to give a reply on all counts. I cannot fault their customer service. In most cases, their prices are extremely competitive if not the best.

Thread seriously needs to be renamed "Milsims: Industrious Dwarves"...

As noted in the other thread, service is good, stock is excellent (more GMT is coming!) and the location is OK. They also invoked ninja powers of commonsense and display the games in alphabetical order. I worry the blokes will melt into a puddle once the warm weather starts.

Well, the reviews here are right, it really is worth heading out there. Nice frindly bunch there and a wide range of wargames and boardgames. But be warned if you type Milsims into Google map it will take you to Boronia Rd so doublecheck your map destination and dont make my mistake by trusting Mr Google's map. Type in their address instead of Milsims and you'll get there!

Especially important if travelling from the US (or Malaysia), frustrating to stumble at the final hurdle surprise

I thought you hang out here to get away from work. It's disconcerting to realise that you are really a deep-cover operative for the Local Guides program.

I tried to submit a correction but I'm not sure how. It has the right address yet still directs you to Boronia when asked to provide directions. Very strange

If you're the owner of Milsims or the responsible, needs to connect with GOOGLE MY BUSINESS. Claim the business and after that start the process.
https://support.google.com/business/answer/2911778

They going to send to the address a code so you can confirm the ownership. Takes a little time, but it's good. You can have some result in google search after.

Any doubts, just send a PM.

Thanks, but I'm not connected to the business in any way other than a happy customer. Hopefully the owner will see this thread and take the necessary actions as you've said

I really like the store. Having everything alphabetised is great. But my favourite thing was walking in and finding out that they did have copies of Clank!, even though their website Island it didn't. Haven't ordered anything through them yet, but I'm sure I'll get there.
