Retro Game Base Business UP FOR SALE

Post by handbakedarcade » Mon Jul 04, 2016 2:40 pm

It is after great deliberation that we have made the decision to put RGB on the open market. We will be open for business as usual up until any sale but this is an excellent opportunity to own a unique retail outlet in South London. A well established, sustainable niche business catering for the ever-growing retro market. Feel free to share this post and for full details on the sale of the business please contact Tom@fourquartersbar.co.uk / Joe@fourquartersbar.co.uk.

Well I'm disgusted with the responses in this thread. Here's a fine chance for a retro enthusiast to own a nice little retro business and what do we get?
That's right, the big money men move in straight away and start throwing their fifty pences around. What chance has the little man got?
I've got 27p burning a hole in my pocket and I'm not even in the race. Big wallets win again. It just sucks.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

If it was ten years ago it would of been great
Carboots free of a lot of re-sellers and ebayers
Plentiful stock to get

These days most those people think that Fifa 2001 is worth a tenner and Megadrives are worth £40

OPs best bet is to just sell off stock on Ebay or Facebook groups and sod the shop

To be fair, I don't think the OP deserves the ridicule he's getting here. Retro Game Base was a bold business venture and not an entirely unsuccessful one either.

At least someone made an effort to keep our retro machines on the high street.

I don't think any of us are ridiculing the OP, none of us want to laugh at other peoples hardships.....but, I am really going to seriously buy a business from a forum post....will they accept paypal?

I think if I sell my Atari Jaguar for its full gaming value I might be able to stick another 4p on my original available funds.
