We were very excited to be featured on the FRONT PAGE of the July 13, 2016 edition of the actual printed South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper! We have been named as one of the best places around to enjoy some Pokémon Go!
The game has dropped into the lives of our customers like a long lost friend and we are happy to be able to bring you so much joy! Plus, being inside with AIR CONDITIONING has its mega-pluses in South Florida’s disgusting summer heat.
Here is a snippet from the Sun-Sentinel article about our shop, you can read the rest of it in its entirety here.
Poke Stops can be found in and around the popular comic book store (4566 N. University Drive, Lauderhill). There are two additional Pokemon Gyms across the street. The store also sells Pokemon merchandise and is a popular spot for gamers.
“Yesterday we had over 100 people having fun in the store … and so many others throughout the weekend. We are really lucky to have such an awesome community of ‘Trainers’ in this area,” says JoAnn Minieri, store manager.
Additionally, New Times has included us on their “Best Nine” list, you know you don’t want to miss out on this action! Come on down as soon as you can and see what you can catch!
Here’s the New Times article snippet:
Gamers have been heading to this Lauderhill comic store to play Pokémon for years. The Pokémon gods have been watching and to reward their continued support have blessed the region around Tate’s with PokéStops and two gyms.
