"Our WPN Premium status is something we hold dear, as it fills us with pride and gives us the opportunity to offer our customers the best possible Magic experience including previews, exclusives, qualifying events and much more! Our Magic community is made up of all kinds: young and old, veterans and novices, professionals and families! We are proud to have created an environment that our customers find welcoming and enjoy spending time. We are thankful to the WPN Premium program for providing advice for improving the aesthetics and layout of our shop."

"'Nostos' means 'homecoming' so I want everyone who comes into my shop to feel that sense of home. I designed my shop to be a bright, warm, clean, inviting space you want to spend time in. My shop has lots of windows and natural light, with a beautiful view of the Ipswich River from every seat in my play space! Submitting my shop for the WPN Premium process was daunting because it can be challenging to hear what things aren’t working when you have poured so much into your business but every change the committee and my WPN Business Development Specialist recommended had a purpose and elevated my shop and made it better. Now that I have achieved WPN Premium I can see how each change the committee recommended, whether big or small, has made a positive impact!"

"WPN Premium has benefited the business by elevating the hobby gaming community in Tucson. Our players know when they come in, they'll have a positive, welcoming experience and colorful space to play. It's been an investment for the future. I'm most proud of our mural, a marriage of Sonoran desert meets fantasy, which is where Amazing Discoveries intersects. Another unique quality of our store is our open retail space with a tall ceiling and aisles that are easy to shop through."

Level Up - We Have Fun
Achieved WPN Premium June 2, 2022
"We were granted Premium status only a few months into being open, and the most immediate benefit has been increased visibility. This has allowed us to foster the growth of our community, events, and product sales. Our greatest point of pride has been our supportive and respectful community. Our aim is to accompany fans in their discovery of the world of games, offering wide-ranging and flexible services within the framework of a place for leisure and fun."

Achieved WPN Premium June 30, 2022
"Working towards WPN Premium really had us look at all the tiny details that made a huge impact on providing superior customer experiences at Halcyon Games. One of those details was adding section signs. We didn’t really think we needed them in such a small space, but we went big, colorful, and playful. We are so glad we embraced the change because our customers can find things easier and they create a more welcoming ambience. Most importantly, we learned to constantly look for ways we can make small improvements every day. Perhaps, our best new feature is our logo wall in our play space that absorbs sound, which is especially helpful during rain storms and busy game nights."

We want to let the community know that we go above and beyond and strive to be one of the best in the industry. One of the things we get complimented on a lot is that we are always growing and evolving, never staying stagnant, which is probably one of our most unique qualities."

Elysium Cards and Games
Fair Oaks, California
Achieved WPN Premium August 26, 2022
"Elysium has had a focus since day one on inclusivity in the gaming space. The owner has been an avid gamer for most of his life, and as a queer man saw the issues with discrimination permeating even the hobbies he pursued. Now, thanks to the support of the community and the staff that assists the owner, Elysium is proud to be a safe haven for everyone who wants to game. While we already had a goal in mind to be a premier LGS, working towards Premium helped us improve our shop even more. We were pushed to organize better, install improvements for customers, and were able to commission work from a local artist thanks to the Retail Improvement Grant program. Now that we've achieved Premium status, we are seeing an uptick in attendance to our events and talk of our shop has even reached a few states away!"

Modern Table Top
Achieved WPN Premium September 29, 2022
"Customers and staff are aware of our drive to become premium. This has put a lot of pride, structure and discipline into our staff. Customers constantly tell us how great our store looks and how well kept it is. This continues to drive customers back to us. We are proud of our customer service and how we treat everyone that walks in the door. People can feel a little uneasy the moment they walk into a store they have never been in and seeing so many people playing games. The way our staff greets them and answers their questions helps to alleviate that awkwardness for some new customers. We also love our D&D room. Our D&D players have been with us since we first opened and they volunteered to help build the room to the standard it is today."
