On New Years Eve, Dec. 31, 2012, in an interview with Mike Bevel, the regional manager of the Cool Stuff, Inc., was able to share what this great game store is all about in a nutshell. The new store location in Maitland, Fla. was a sight to behold. With the mysterious glow of the Christmas tree and table top games displayed next to it, it is no wonder how one could feel like a kid in the candy store or gaming store for that matter, especially during the holidays.
Bevel, who has been in Cool Stuff's employ since September 2012, enlightened those interested in finding out more about what they provide their customers as well as a scheduled venue for different gaming types such as Heroclix, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and so on.
Also, if you're of a competitive variety, league play is also available.
The one thing that makes this store successful is the fact not only it's a brick and mortar gaming store, but also an online provider with a great variety of table top games, cards, and any games you can think of. If you can think of the most obscure game possible, it'll more than likely be at Cool Stuff, Inc.
Also, the expansion of the franchise has gone beyond just Orlando/central Florida area, but towards south Florida as well, and eventually plans will take it as far as the south east, too and Mike Bevel is a part of that planning process. That being said, the wheels of the Cool Stuff, Inc. empire are in motion. So, keep an eye out, for it might be coming to your neighborhood near you.
Even competitive play and leagues occur at the Cool Stuff venue. Starting on January 7, 2013 will be the opening of a Pokemon League and later that month, a Magic the Gathering: "Gatecrash" Pre-release, sealed event.
Overall, Cool Stuff, Inc. does indeed provide a service for all what a gamer needs. It's also a great venue to provide for socialization, make new friends, and meet new people for fun or friendly competition.
