Recently my partner and I were inspired by another man selling his
entire life on eBay. We thought the reason for selling was great!
Running a business is hard work and it requires a lot of effort, with
that effort you miss a lot of special time with your family and
children. Between the two of us we have seven children and we would
like to kick back and spend some time with them. Then we looked at
the details and realized we can offer a much better deal. Our stores are well stocked, with unbeatable prices, and more established So we figured we shouldn't miss the
opportunity to compete on all fronts. So up for sale is Gamers HQ.
Gamers HQ was founded in 2008 by Buddy and Dave in Belleview
Florida. We worked the store everyday for the first year making
friends and selling each customer our dream one game at a time. After
two years we felt the urge to grow and so we did. We opened a second
store in Inverness Florida splitting our time between Belleview and
Inverness. It was an epic adventure to have two stores and we
couldn't of had more fun. Recently we thought all this money laying
around needed to be put to good use so we opened our third store in
Gainesville Florida just catty corner to the University of Florida.
All we can say about this third store is best decision ever. We work
the stores and employ six fantastic and devoted employees. we have
plans on the books for a fourth store and our top employee is ready to
move to the area and run store four as his very own store.
To a potential buyer who is serious we have financials for the
past four years that show in black and white the business has been
profitable each and every quarter since we started. In fact my
partner and I have drawn pay checks from the business since the first
week and we haven't skipped a beat since. To be precise you can make
$4180.00 a month in pay alone. this is not including the companies
holiday bonus pay and other miscellaneous perks such as mileage, gas
for travel, trade show admissions and lodging, company picnics and the
perks that come along with a video game store. (did i mention you get
to work with games every single day you work) ;) the stores
have been in the black since they started. and lets not forget the
holidays, oh man are the holidays glorious!!
internet trolls would ask "If you are doing so well why would you
sell?" The answer is simple and to the point. we want more time,
home, with our families. Running a business is a daily job that
requires hard work and attention. We have put in a mountain of hard
work and we think its time to take a break and enjoy what we have
created and pass along our success to another person ready to invest
time and their heart in to a fantastic and amazingly great business!
Other trolls may say the industry is dead thanks to the digital
delivery that's growing so popular but to that all we can say is 85%
of what we sell can not be bought in a Gamestop, or downloaded online!
we sell retro games for people who want the feel of the controllers
in their hands and the original games flashing on their screens. We
sell new games too but they are just a tool. We sell more than just
video games, we sell card games table top games and everything in
With the sale of our company you will get both of
us as personal consultants for three months to ensure you learn the
business. Also if the buyer is interested we will stay on to open the
fourth store for you as consultants teaching you each step along the
way. We will also pay the rest of the years leases for all stores to
make your transition to store owner easier. The new owner will also
get our distributors who have been key to our success by providing new
release games the day they come out so we have midnight releases just
like the big guys. We live in the neighborhood so of course you
would also gain us as customers since we will still need to buy our
games ;) We will ensure you learn every single lesson we have learned
from and used to succeed in business. The new owner will inherit
over 15,000 fantastic customers. You will learn all the secrets to
the video game industry and how to continue raking in the profits.
All the employees are ready to guide you and provide the same
excellent service they have for years now. (some of our employees
have been with us over three years!)
So there it is. If you
were thinking of starting a video game store, maybe looking at a
franchise? Don't waste your time. Here are three established stores
with their best years ahead of them still. Trust me if you love
games and love to talk to people about games and listen to their
stories about their favorite games, this is utopia. It will demand
hard work and effort on your part but it will pay you for your work.
Serious offers that we accept will require a .5% non refundable
deposit of the agreed upon price to begin legal papers transferring
ownership and covering misc sale expenses.
We will donate
10% of the final price to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
This business succeeds thanks to children and giving back to them will
be our first step if sold.

Update: We have seen a few articles about our offer here and I think we should clarify a few things. First YES we are serious and we think our competitor has a FANTASTIC IDEA! we would love to spend more time with out families so selling our company that we have created from the ground up sounds great to us. Of course as with any sort of sales you have to offer more value at a lower price to make things happen, so we feel its not malicious to offer what we have offered, we think its a great deal! A better deal.
As for the 4k a month salary, well that's just what that is. A pay check, we take paychecks just like our employees and we take nothing more than that. We are growing the company so we only get paid what we require to live. The sales of the store in 2011 were 438,790.61 and that was JUST TWO STORES! now that we have opened our third store this year in May we sit at over 370k right now! the last quarter of the year is our biggest time of the year and we are projecting an easy 150k to 200k to make in the last quarter. We have the documents to show our income. And we have the documents to show where every single penny goes, just ask the IRS they know all about our profits. :/ in any event if the store sells, I will get to spend more time with my baby daughter and my two year old son and my eleven year old boy, My partner will no longer miss the little league games for his son and the cheer leading of his talented daughter. We're just regular guys who created a beast of a game store that's kicking ass on all fronts. That's our weakness, we're just regular guys and we miss some of the regular life that we have sacrificed to be successful in this business. It takes hard work and a lot of hours. So we wont be bowing out for nothing. And if it doesn't sell? well that's OK too, we've come this far and we can go even farther. either we leave our kids a great company to take over, or we leave them some cash to create their own dreams with. Either way we are probably the happiest guys you'd meet. Come by and say hi :) or Management@gamershqstore.com the email is always on :)
