Bits and Pixels Hitting the Off Switch

The video game store will close for good on September 30th.




I missed this news posted earlier this week. The local used game shop in Carytown is calling it quits. They made the announcement on Facebook.

It is with great difficulty and sadness that I announce that Bits+Pixels time in Carytown is coming to a close.

After 14 years of serving the gaming community in Richmond and Central Virginia, we will be closing our doors for the last time on September 30th
We would not have made it this far without the continued love and support from our customers, family, and friends. I am especially grateful to everyone who ever worked for Bits+Pixels and Play N’ Trade. They were not employees in my eyes, they were partners. Each brought their unique energies, skills and ideas to the store allowing us to grow & improve. I will forever be indebted to them all for their contributions to our success.

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be posting a retrospective (including pics) of Bits+Pixels /Play N’ Trade beginning from the first day we opened our doors on Watermelon Sunday, August 8, 2008. Watch for them on Facebook.

We will also be letting you know what our plans will be moving forward!

Also, watch for some great sales and special events over the next couple of weeks. Of course, there will be plenty of reminiscing and stories to tell!
I have so many wonderful memories from the past 14 years but I would love to know YOUR favorite Bits+Pixels/PlayN’Trade memories, moments, and stories! Please share them on our Facebook page.

Once again, THANK YOU and come see us soon!
