New game store opens in Glenmont
The gaming industry continues to grow, and local businesses are cashing in on the boom.
Gary White is the owner of the new Shroomy’s Game Store on Feura Bush Road in Glenmont.
It’s a buy, sell and trade retail store that carries games, accessories, controllers and consoles.
Most of his customers are college students, but he is also seeing a lot of families and people aged 35 to 50 who are looking for retro and nostalgia.
White has been planning the store for years. In years past, he and his wife would sell games online, but she told him it was time to get the games out of the basement.
The Whites plan to add a gaming room to the business, host tournaments and offer space for families looking to hold special events.
