Media Play, Great Mall: It's gone
« on: December 10, 2005, 06:57:16 PM »

What is the relevance of this being here?

The entire store is on sale. They are closing (wah...). This means everything is a little cheaper than usual. Including the anime goods. How much are the discounts? Not so sure.

Just saying if you want something to blow your money on before the holidays. :D

Wow, Media Play is one of those stores that I figured would always be there.  What a bummer.  I used to buy anime stuff from them all the time.  As of recent, I've favored Fry's or Bestbuy, but it still feels like something of a loss.

And thus closes my main manga purchase store. Dammit.

The Great Mall is devolving now. :( First Wonderpark, then Kyun, then Media Play.

What~!?!?!?  I just went there, and they seemed fine... A week ago.  Well, maybe it's like those Furniture stores that always say Closing but nver leave?  Well... that's too bad.  It was always the hang out for us Otakus like the 2004 Christmas Gathering~! =w=

I'm not so sure. All I know is that there are signs all over the place that says store closing. It's a great loss....

Reference to Spiritsnare, Wonderpark; was the ONLY place to play the Bust a Groove arcade game. Dang it, I want to play it again...
-Kyun was closed because the person that owned it refused to pay his rent. Then he left. - -

This is freakin unbelievable. It is the only decent store the Great Mall has, once Media Play closes for good - Great Mall will be dead to me.

I was buying Ramune there on a daily basis, and occasionally a pack or two of Reverse. And then the Vans Skatepark closed, and with it went DDR 5thMIX and DDRMAX.

That was my other favorite haunt. The arcade at Vans.

Stuff like this always sucks.

I remember when this happened to Suncoast and Sam Goody at Oakridge. >.> Boy that sucked, there were no decent anime store in the mall to go to. I really hope that doesn't happen to the great mall.

Ditto to when they demoed the Sam Goody and Suncoast out of Eastridge way before it was remodeled.

This really does blow because even though I buy a majority of my R1 anime from Best Buy, Media Play beat out some of there deals 25% of the time with that "19.99 New Release" deal on select titles. Oh well, its too bad. I thought it was only a matter of time before it bit the dust like sam goody though.  :(

Suncoast is a terrible place to buy DVDs if you're looking for a good deal. 70% of the box sets/dvds there are always full price, or inflated by 5 dollars than if you went to Best Buy or some other niche shop.
