G-Force in Glasgow (Outside Central Station - down the stairs by the toilets and turn right, it's a few doors along, just past the Games Workshop) usually has a few retro things in, although some of the stuff can be expensive.

I'm sure they've got a few other shops elsewhere too - one being in Paisley somewhere.

Unfortunately no, since we don't really visit Chorlton for anything.

Thanks for answering though! I could look it up.

We had two in Stockport once upon a time, but they were both closed (one very recently), which sucks since they could get you a game early if you paid them that day or two early.
Rewind collectibles in Ashton (Up the road from the Jobcentre round the back ot hte what was an arcade)
Total games Ashton (no retro)

Manchester
Shinobi games gorton,

I remember the ones in Stockport.
Shame that Game city had to close

Game On in Croydon has a small retro section, but I've had bad experiences with them with a Gamecube rarity one, so maybe best to avoid....

I found this while strolling around Lincoln today. Seems like they've been trading for a few years and are still going.
The prices were quite competitive with what I've seen online and elsewhere, so if you're in Lincoln it's worth 5 minutes.

That's not my video, but from the look of it, nothing much has changed since then to when I looked around today.

There's a game store in the Tollcross area of Edinburgh which still has ST and Amiga games in the window.

For the same price they were in 1991!

Voodoo Consoles in Melton Mowbray. Not a full retro store but they do stock PS2, Xbox, Gamecube games and they do get a few odd older items in like boxed gameboys, dreamcasts etc

The Kart Klub in Aldershot is closing down :(

Currently half marked price on DC games and buy-one-get-one-half-price on PSone games.
