If you’re a boardgame geek, then you need to know about this store: Meeplemart.
Back in March, Meeplemart changed locations. It used to be found on Carlaw Avenue on the second story of an unremarkable building. You’d walk up a staircase expecting a small, dingy little store and instead, you’d walk into this near-warehouse filled with shelves of gaming products stacked on top of each other with dedicated places for gaming. In short, it was Gamer’s Nirvana.
Even still, it used to be difficult to get to. If you were a driver, it would be hard to find places to park. If you were a subway goer, it was difficult to access as it was a little off the beaten path. It was a challenge to transport your gaming gear.
However, it is probably the best gaming store in the city. It is un-matched for its variety of products and its amount of inventory. Moreover, if it isn’t in stock, the owner, Steve Lefort, is incredibly well-versed on his product lines and could give you decent information about how long it would take to re-order an out-of-stock item.
Meeplemart’s new location is a lot more accessible. Located on the lower level at 247 Spadina Avenue, reasonably close to subway access as well as an abundance of paid and free parking locations, getting to Meeplemart is a heck of a lot easier. Inside the new store, the space is enormous compared to the last location. According to Steve, the gaming area alone is the same size as the entire last store location. Gaming Nirvana just got an extension.
One thing hasn’t changed though; Meeplemart’s amazing mail-order capability. Every product is individually described in detail on its website and can be ordered for pick-up or for shipping. A flat rate of under $10.00 makes the shipping attractive as well as incredibly convenient. If the item is in stock and you live within or fairly close to Toronto, you can typically expect your order in under a week. Of course, this is all subject to the whims of Canada Post and how much is ordered, but experience has shown that has been the usual length of time.
Meeplemart is hosting several events this month. Dropzone Commander can be played on the first and third Saturday of each month. Relic Knight is also a featured gaming event that can be played every second and fourth Thursday evenings. Starting September 28th, Meeplemart is hosting open boardgaming every Sunday, between 12pm and 6pm in its “Lazy Sunday Afternoon Board Gaming”. New players are welcome. Who could resist this open call for a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon? Make some new friends, pick up some games, but most of all, enjoy the new location! You won’t be disappointed with the amount of available inventory of games and gaming accessories there is to discover.
