Going Strong – I've shopped here off and on for over 10 years. The owner is super sweet . She has maintained this small business for so long that the selection was off the charts! When other similar stores owned by large corporations were closing, her experience and personal knowledge of her customer's needs allowed the store to thrive even in hard economic times. I plan to continue to be a big supporter so that the store can continue to do well in this community.
great store – This place is 100% legit. the women who run it are extremely friendly and helpful! I have been several times and have never once had a problem and I find everything I need most of the time for cheap! $16.95 for a brand new blu ray release? Yes, please!
Why go anywhere else? – This is the only store I will buy games or new movies. Their prices are consistently lower than nearby Gamestop and their employees are 100 times more pleasant. When they added used DVDs I was hooked!
West point video games is the best deal ever – This is probably the best place to buy video games new or used. One time i went to a Gamestop and looked at all the prices and west points prices were WAY better. The same exact games new at west point were anywhere from 3 to seven dollars cheaper than the same exact titles at Gamestop. I'm pretty sure the guy who said everything they have is stolen is either jealous or just wants to make trouble. This place is the tops by far for any game shopping experience.
Westpoint Video Games is da bomb – Yeah I come here all the time everyone has been friendly to me. I think it's kinda crazy how the older ladies know the video games, I mean, I'm a guy in my 20s and they seriously know more about this stuff than I do. Saved me some crazy running around. For instance, I wanted to buy a PS2 multitap and the lady was like do you have the slim version of PS2? and I was like yeah and she was like oh we only have the old PS2 multitaps they won't fit in the slim and we don't have any slim multitaps in stock. They didn't get a sale and educated me I was like thanks! Same thing happened I wanted to hook up my old school Sega and lost the wires. I asked for some and they said which version of Sega do you have? There are 3 different ones and they had different hookups (not even counting Sega CD and all that just the regular 16-bit console) I was like crap I don't know then they asked me about what it looked like, what buttons were on it etc and we figured out I had a Gen 2 model. Cord wasn't in stock on that 20 year old system but I was very appreciative, saved me some running around in the future.
Also, do these people below think no other shop buys stolen stuff? How would they even know for sure if it was stolen or not? Blame the vile thieves not these nice people. As Vanilla Ice would say, Word to your mother.
Keeping video games and movies affordable – I am not a member of this site. I just signed up because of the horrible reviews I saw some people write. This is a legit business, not a shady pawn shop. I have been going there since they opened and I have NEVER had any of the ladies be rude to me. They are always helpful and nice. They give great trade in value and dont charge stupid prices like the major chains like Gamestop. The blu-ray prices cant be beat. I have family from out of state that goes there everytime they are in town. The only drawback is they dont always have the newest titles, which is fine bcause they usually have them within a few days or week. The people who write bad reviews are mad because they probably tried to sell crap titles, old titles or work for a competitor. Bottom line, I dont go anywhere else.
See for yourself – rtrowgo says prices too high, product is dirty.
Bluraylover says employees are constantly cleaning
sr0987 says one item was priced lower at another store and they made fun of your shorts..
JRWrightman says prices are so low they must be stolen.
I've owned retail stores and I know you can't please all the people all the time. I know there are as many, or more, rude customers than employees. I've been to this store many times and never witnessed or been involved in the negative issues found in this column. Some prices are higher, some are lower. They are under no obligation to meet or beat competitors prices and we are under no obligation to shop there. I've been in the "mysterious" backroom, it contains security monitors, testing equipment and a restroom. I will continue to shop there because I always find it a pleasant and rewarding experience. I generally learn something, about the industry or new product, or find obscure system parts or movie titles. All I can tell you is to see for yourself. I think with all they have to deal with they are doing a good job.
P.S Maybe they weren't making fun of your shorts, maybe they were making fun of your legs.
Accuracy re; user reviews – Never have I seen such a wide disparity within the reviews of one shop.. People love it or hate it w/ no in-between. I have to believe the haters have there own agenda, i.e; envious competitors;: and how can this website allow slander and libelous (criminal) claims without regard to facts or evidence? I have bought and sold games there (I wear an army jacket, maybe I was that "junkie"). I like the fact I'm not dealing with corporate America that offers 16% for your product and cannot deviate because prices are set by number crunchers in another state.Employees at GameStop or EB are just doing there time and care little about the business, its reputation or its success. Here you can deal with the owner, directly, on-site. Independent shops are the backbone of America and the fact they've been at this location 10-12 years and in business even longer tells me they are doing something right. I've found them to be knowledgable, fair and customer oriented and they will continue to get my families business. Highly recommended.
Stolen DVD's Video Games, Cards and More! – COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police and agents from the Internal Revenue Service arrested three people on Friday after raids at a Dublin home and a west side business.
Two people were arrested at a home on Baronscourt Way and one person at a video store on Westpoint Plaza Drive, 10TV's Jason Frazer reported.
The three are accused of purchasing DVDs and other items that were stolen from nearby stores, like Walmart, Meijer and Target, and then re-selling them at the video store for a fraction of their original price.
Lisa Harper, who allegedly ran the fraudulent business, faces a felony charge of receiving stolen property. Her roommate, identified as Kimberly Parker, was charged with a misdemeanor.
The third person taken into custody was not identified.
Best place to sell your stolen video games or movies! They are always ready to buy hot merchandise. How else do you think they can sell new movies or games so cheap! Next time you are there look out for the drug addict selling a bag of stolen merchandise to them! The even have a back room for the sole purpose of buying the stolen stuff in private! I know cause my friend worked there! Enough said...
Definitely worth checking out – I love this place, they always have the newest games in stock, sometimes even before the big super stores like Best Buy. Also, their prices are better than most everywhere, they are competitive with the places you will find on the net even. Another nice thing is the place is dog friendly, the ladies there all have their little dogs there and they are cute. The women that work there are very friendly in person (sometimes not so much on the phone though) and I really enjoy shopping here.
