Video game store Game On is moving locations as part of an expansion for Juneau’s only video game store.
Owners Casey and Emry Harris wrote in a release that they’ve been planning the move for more than a year now.
“We’re really chomping at the bit to relocate,” they said, and offer more services in addition to selling and buying new and used video games.
Game On will close up shop on Sunday in their current location on Glacier Highway. They expect the move to take three weeks, they said, and plan to reopen in their new suites in September. They plan to add rental game rooms and an expanded inventory at their new location in two suites in the west end of the mall.
The business is known for its efforts to invite diverse groups into the gaming community.
“Birthday parties and date nights in the game rooms are going to be wonderful, but I’m by far most excited to finally have a space to host game nights for marginalized gamers to meet, have fun, and build community amongst themselves. Community and inclusion is really what we’re all about, and we’ve only just begun to provide for that need,” Casey Harris wrote.
