September 01, 2010 // Franchising.com // Huntsville, Ala. – Gamer Doc®, the retail video game store franchise that delivers a new and interactive customer experience, today announced the opening of its first Alabama store. The Huntsville Gamer Doc offers a family friendly environment and a "Pro Player" room. The Pro Player room features 10 wall-mounted, HD flat-panel monitors optimized for gaming, and can accommodate up to 20 players for Xbox 360®, PlayStation 3®, Wii®, PC, or online games.
"Video and computer games are an increasingly popular form of entertainment, according to the Entertainment Software Association, with 67 percent of American households playing, and 48 percent of parents saying they play with their children at least once a week," said store owner Tom Wang. "Our Pro Player room is sure to be a big hit, because there is nothing like it in the area. We are very pleased to bring this new and exciting gaming experience to the community."
Gamer Doc's Xbox 360, PlayStation and Wii "Gamer Centers" make it easy to find the games, consoles and accessories for each platform. Customers can buy, rent, sell, play, pick-up, pre-order or trade-in games, drop-off a disc or console for repair, their PC for a game download or repair, sign-up for an in-store tournament, or rent the Pro Player room for a birthday party or other celebration.
"Our store is an innovation in retail, and my staff and I are here to make sure that all of our customers enjoy their Gamer Doc experience, whether they are new to gaming, casual players or returning store champions," Wang said. "There is something for everyone at Gamer Doc, and we welcome the opportunity to talk with our customers about video games, have them play games, and answer any questions they might have."
Gamer Doc is more than a video game store; it is an entertainment center, also offering HD flat-panel monitors, cables and accessories, and the staff is happy to show customers how to hook-up their systems for the best game play possible.
