I conducted an interview with the owners of Gamesanytime shop in Bell, CA. Funny story how that came to pass:
I was riding my bicycle down Gage Ave. one day and noticed a closed video game shop. At the top of the entrance was a big sign that said “FOR LEASE.” I assumed it was an old store that was shutting down. I peeked inside and saw Super Nintendo cartridges, old Game Boys, and classic consoles. I had a brief and powerful nostalgia trip at that moment, which made me feel absolutely horrible about the notion that the shop might close down. “If I had money, I would buy things here all the time to keep this shop from shutting down,” I thought.
Fortunately for me, the opposite of what I feared was actually true. The shop wasn’t shutting down, it was establishing itself. It wasn’t an old shop, it was new. I introduced myself to the owners, and asked for them to grant me an interview for an article to be published in latinogamer.com
They kindly agreed.
