Competitive pricing applies to every item in their vast array, from individually packaged cards to sealed boxes and their accompanying enhancements.
The establishment also serves as a hub for the passionate community around this hobby, offering space for customers to meet, trade, and engage in friendly matches or heated tournaments. It's not just about the transactions - it's about building and nurturing a community where fans can come together and share their love for these fantastical universes.
In 2013, the shop’s owner and founder opened an online trading card store and in 2015 he opened a brick-and-mortar card shop, knowing there was a need for a shop with an online presence that offered single/individual cards, not just booster boxes and packs. His strategy was a success–the business grossed $440,000 in its first year and $600,000 in the next year and has increased revenue each year since. The popularity of the Trading Card Game (TCG) industry grew significantly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to player demand for tournaments and a need for space to hold more products in store, in 2021 the shop expanded to a larger location and began holding weekly card tournaments with up to 26 participants.
This business offers better customer service and lower prices than the leading competitors, thanks to its superior systems and processes for purchasing, processing, and selling trading cards. These systems maximize efficiency and provide a streamlined customer experience. The shop is well-known for its cleanliness and meticulous organization, and its loyal customers consistently rate it highly online. The founder is now selling this thriving business to focus more on his young and thriving family. With strong systems in place and a solid customer base, this company has good opportunities for growth. Buyers with experience and interest in the dynamic TCG industry should take special notice of this opportunity. This business is SBA pre-approved.
