Hey, everybody!

Now is the time to share the news - Haven is moving! We haven't determined the new location as of yet - we're still deciding between a couple of spots - but don't worry; just because we're going doesn't mean we're going away!

We'll still be in the Madison area, hopefully in a more visible, more accessible location, and we'll still have the same great selection and same awesome group of guys at the store to help you out with whatever you need. We'll still be carrying awesome comics, and we'll still be playing HeroClix, War Machine, Munchkin, D&D, Vampire, and just about anything else you can think of. We'll let you know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE when and where we'll be moving - stay tuned to your email and to the store blog for more updates!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're holding a huge sale! No, they're not going as crazy as they did when I was out of town, but this will still be a pretty sale. If there's something you've been itching to buy but haven't been able to talk yourself into, now is the time! Back issues are on sale, Trade Paperbacks, T-Shirts, Gaming Books, all kinds of stuff - come on down to the store and check it out!

Looking forward to seeing you guys at Haven!

Wow, that's big news! And as much as I love Haven's present location, I must say, I think it's a good decision.

When we originally reserved our space in Richland Plaza, we were meant to get 1/3 less square footage than we ended up with. The dentist's office next door was also being constructed, and they ended up needing a bigger space then they'd originally planned, so what would have been another business in between us and the dentist was partially used to expand their office. However, the remaining space was then too small to accommodate anyone. As a result, we had to take over that leftover portion or lose our space entirely.

We got a good deal on rent because we were being forced to take on more than we'd bargained for, but it was still quite a bit higher than we'd expected to pay. Thus, for years, Haven has been paying for a lot of extra space that we weren't really in a position to fill up. Sure it was nice to have all that room, but it was very costly and unnecessary.

So when Haven moves to a new spot, I can only see things improving. Less money spent on rent will free up more money to spend on product.
