Hi all,

I am interested in buying one of their game given that I had accumulate some reward points to offset some cost. My problem is that the delivery is quite high for just one game and I am in good location to pick the game up myself.

I tried to go to internet checkout and see if there is any pick up options available but apparently none. I just wondered has anyone tried to order over internet and pick up from them before? If so, how?

Thanks for any tips.

Just another question. Should this thread go to discuss retailer or just keep it here? Since the website is Australia based.

As far as I'm aware, the store and the on-line site are run as two separate entities, even though they share the same name.

A. In limited circumstances we are more than happy for you to collect from our warehouse. From time to time, we will offer collection special pick up times. This will be displayed on the website and communicated to our Members.


and the warehouse is in Marrickville.

So ring them up and ask.

Edit: I should add that I have not tried this before.

Not sure that helps much, but I think it means we don't normally do this, but will tell you if we do.

That's what i thought. That's why putting up to ask if there is any people tried before. But thanks for all for the input though.
