    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Except the point of this list is to make it easy to see at a glance where there are retailers.

    Also, the one I posted in baton rouge isn't a typo

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Barnes and Noble alone would unecessarily clutter the list. That's why I have separate national section for the big chains.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Not every B&N or HT sells them though. Might make it easier if for each location for them we just use HT or B&N instead of the full title.

    Please do not pm me with questions on how to do something hobby related. Just ask in a related thread.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    I wanted to make this list to make it easy to find the local and small chains. B&N and HTUSA have a combined total of 1,000 or so stores. Let's take a conservative guess and say that only a fifth of those carry Gunpla, that's still 200 stores with cities which will clutter the list needlessly. B&N and HobbyTown both have websites with local store locators and phone numbers. People can call those locations to check availability. This will keep the list cleaner, which will make finding the small local shops (as in the stores that are unlikely to be known by everyone) significantly easier. Seeing a seemingly endless list of HobbyTown and B&N stores does no one any good and defeats the purpose of the list.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    I understand why Zeta G wants those not to be mentioned since there is already resource for that.

    Though if not all stores in the chain have gunpla and that's a MAJOR problem, I'd say make that its own section.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    I included links to their websites, so people can find their local stores and call them for Gunpla availability.

    @ahaiko: Thanks for adding the cities! I've updated the list with your submissions.

    Barnes & Noble and HobbyTown USA have been located at the top of the list under National from the beginning, but to make finding their local stores easier, I've replaced the links to their homepages with direct links to their retail store locators.
