Store Closing - Feb 27th 2014-02-20 14:23:43


Heads up everyone, the store will officially close on February 27th!

A bunch of stuff is discounted so go nuts: http://www.newgrounds.com/store

The supporter option will still exist - it is launching as its own thing outside of the store, and any future digital sales stuff we do will extend from that. I know it seems like a big failure that the store is closing, but maintaining a physical goods operation from the office has always been a bit of a burden. We'll probably have some NG shirts available through other outlets in the future but the "NG Store" chapter is officially closing. Get something while you can!

I've never bought anything from the store, but seeing it close after all this time makes me sad as well.

Terrible news, but not unexpected. It was just a matter of when.

Still moving towards selling the current office and buying a new, smaller one?

And while we're at it, can we ask if there's going to be a Pico Day party this year?

That's actually depressing as fuck.
I always wanted something from the store. At least I hope you will sell some NG shirts in one way or the other.

Well I was hoping to buy something when I had money.

Response to Store Closing - Feb 27th 2014-02-20 14:49:04


Can't say I'm surprised. My only regret is I never got one of those Castle Crashers when they were available. I'll have to get a Tankman and a Mystery Box before it closes.

Yeah still planning to sell the office and then probably rent something while deciding if I really want to own something again... The things you own end up owning you.

Damn good question... I gotta just make it official that we'll have something on April 26th. Pico Day has become a bigger and bigger mental roadblock for me each year... But there are some cool entries on the way and that is motivation enough to have a whole shindig.

Indeed, I bought some stuff a while ago which I love and planned to do so again in the near future, so will have to think of what I would like to get again sooner rather than later. Perhaps some more t-shirts.

If the property taxes in that area are high (I'm not sure what the average is for businesses in that area), then I'd agree that it would make more sense to rent some new place for as long as you want. I'm not sure about the other overhead costs, but I'm sure they're no joke either. I've been a renter my whole life, and there are clear ups and downs to it. Sometimes I feel like I lack control over certain things, like when I can't get plumbing issues fixed expeditiously or the fact that I can't over-decorate my apartment. So yeah, I'd say rent for now, but I wouldn't rule out purchasing space in the future if NG exhibits healthy and consistent signs of growth.

Property taxes are definitely a big motivation, not only is our area high, but we're paying taxes on a BIG building when we really don't need something nearly as big. Also paying to heat and cool it, maintain it, etc.

The real bummer is that even though the office was overkill, it always felt like a solid investment. How many times in history could you buy a good property, make a bunch of improvements, hold onto it for almost nine years and NOT sell it for at least what you paid for it? It's nuts but it was worth it for the memories... I think.

Is Stamper really fucking rubble?

Provided you have lube, sticking your dick in rubble is allot more comfortable and pleasurable than you think.

rather sad to see the store closing down. it hurts even.

Response to Store Closing - Feb 27th 2014-02-20 16:26:04


*Sigh*...this is sad.

Is there ever any chance, that perhaps, in the far future, there might be a store again? By far I mean at least several years?

Either way, I guess I'll have to get a T-shirt or something, so that I can say I did.

Sad to see the store go, but I always told you selling NG dildos was a golden idea, and you didn't listen.

The most likely scenario is an opportunity to buy NG logo shirts and stickers through some other source, but overall not feeling too hot on getting into physical goods again.

I'm glad I got the good stuff while they were available. Shame to see the store go but there hasn't been anything really brilliant in there for a good few years really.

Will you still be selling Behemoth goods through amazon? Well you were a few months back anyway. Noticed some things I want there. Nercomancer for a start.

And damn no more mystery boxes? Luis, hook me up man.

Behemoth is still selling stuff through Amazon so you should be able to fulfill any of those needs on there.
