Reset Games, a Bellingham retailer that sells new and used video games, will open a second location Thursday, Oct. 1, at 8825 34th Ave. N.E., Suite D, near Bob’s Burgers & Brew and just off Interstate 5’s Exit 200 in Tulalip’s Quil Ceda Village.
“We’re different from most chain stores because our trade-in policy enables customers to stretch their dollars further,” said Dennis Hill, a co-owner at the 1,500-square-foot Reset Games. “If you or your child don’t play a video game any longer, you can trade it in and still afford another game.”
To build its inventory of pre-owned games, Reset Games will buy them from the public during its grand opening Saturday, Oct. 3.
Reset Games also allows customers to try out a game at one of its six gaming stations. Customers can choose from an array of consoles that includes Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and 3 and Nintendo Wii. A parent area is set away from the gaming stations for those who would like to read or watch a television.
Reset Games, owned by CEO Don Yorston, Kathy Varner, Tony Bladies, Ted Ritter and Hill, opened its first store in Bellingham in 2007.
“We’ve created an environment that parents will enjoy and be able to preview games with their kids,” Varner said. “We also have all the latest new releases for serious gamers at lower prices than all other stores.”
The Tulalip store will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call (360) 653-8580 or visit www.resetgames.com.
