Ahoy and Avast ye Hobby web-lubbers!
So, its been a while since my first post, I suspect you might want an explanation.
Setting up a hobby store and website turned out to be everything, and nothing like I expected. After my last post things seemed to be bang on course, but as ever, the best laid plans of mice and men...
So what went wrong? Well finding a property was a big hurdle. Just after my last post I had secured a deal on a small shop and begun legal proceedings. With Christmas in the way, things took a while to kick off so I waited until the new year. Solicitors kept in touch but no news was forthcoming. By the end of January, nothing had moved and I was now offered a second property. With nothing to lose, I went for a viewing and then took up the lease. The new shop is bigger and is over two floors.
So every cloud has its silver lining. Now Though I had to wait another month for legal to resolve the lease. By the beginning of march I was tearing my hair out with stress, but thankfully I was in the shop before I went completely bald!
It took me 10 days to refurbish the shop. The previous tenant left a good deal of mess and furniture (some of which I re purposed!). The shop now has 3 gaming tables (2 Realm of Battle set ups and 1 board game set up), a coffee/tea station, a sofa, mini library as well as shelving for stock and a paint station! In the near future I'm planning on turning upstairs into a gaming centre, but I'm looking at getting settled with the business before I go mad and build a club too!
So thats where we are now. The shop has a steadily growing crew of customers, both new and old, and the webstore is finally complete
I hope that you'll enjoy Asgard Wargames as much as I am, whether it be as a customer, a gamer or browser! Stay tuned for future updates as we progress with the club, including this months Dreadball League!
