LAN Center in Timmins, NEED FEEDBACK

Post by xjd04 » Fri Sep 12, 2008 12:19 am

I have an idea to start up a LAN center but before I even put the idea to good use, I'm looking for some feedback on what sort of population I'd see coming out to this.

I want to attract not only the PC gamers, but console gamers as well, whether it be individual, or groups, all would be welcome gamers and non-gamers. It would have all the latest games, with confection stand, a place to sell/buy used games/consoles and accessories. There will be tournaments hosted, theater rooms for the consoles, but also available to rent for sporting events etc... maybe some liquor?

Eventually but not right away, I would also like to do computer repairs from there, have computer and parts catalog as well as build custom computers. I have spent some time gaming at centers like this and believe it could be a good thing for the gaming community here in Timmins.

If you need a night of gaming away from the wife, or from your nagging mom telling you to keep it down, let me know, any and all feedback is appreciated.

Better check with George and Terry who used to own Timmins Web. They made a go of it, but were forced to close down after about 2 years.

Try and get approval from City Hall as well..
I don't see a problem with running the gaming center but I do see a possible problem with liquor serving at a place teenagers will frequent.. You may be fighting them for proof of age...why not just serve soft drinks????
As for selling used games Eletronique Boutique does that.. as well as swapping them.. and you can also buy used games at the book bin.

getting approved from the lcbo would be harder than getting approved from city hall. and with EB and the book bins... i find their prices are outrageous for used games... tho i found a sweet deal once and EB honored the wrong price [lmao

I agree that it's not worth it to serve alcohol.

I don't think it's the same type of centre George had....he more less had a internet cafe to connect to the internet. This guy wants a real internet gaming centre like the big cities have....great idea and i'm all for it. It will keep the kids busy and off the streets. NO ALCOHOL PLEASE !!!

as long as all the legal requirements to serve alcohol are met and the bar section is totally segregated from the young people, i don't see a issue with it.

That was a classic, not exactly a porn though, just a cheesy BMovie.
