A New Beginning for Games and Stuff

(Same As It Ever Was)

Glen Burnie, MD, April 21 2017-

Since January of 2000, Games and Stuff has been a fixture of central Maryland’s gaming landscape. In recent years, most especially since our move to our current location in March of 2013, we have grown to become one of the preeminent game stores of the Mid-Atlantic, and indeed, the country. So it is with great pride that we announce the next chapter in our story.

Ed Sloman, founder of Games and Stuff, is selling the business to Paul Alexander Butler, long-time store manager and Director of Retail Operations.

In practice, this will mean very little to our customers. Paul has been responsible for the majority of store operations for some time now, and he and Ed have jointly been the driving force behind the store’s culture and community since Paul took over full time in 2010.

“But what about Ed?” you say. “We’ll miss him!”

In fact, we are pleased to say that Ed will be staying on with the business, and you’ll probably see him more than ever as he steps into the new role of Collectible Games Department Manager. He’ll be overseeing Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, Star Wars Destiny, Heroclix, and many more games moving forward.

Here’s Ed:
“Seventeen years. That’s how long I’ve owned Games and Stuff. There are customers that have been with me that entire time, and children of those customers grew up in our community and are now regulars in their own right. From the start, this community is what I set out to build, and my endeavor has been successful by every possible metric — G&S’s friendly and inclusive gaming community is one of the best in the world. Even though I am moving on from store ownership, a large part of the reason I am continuing to be involved with G&S is because I personally value the community we’ve built together, and I want to further contribute to its health and growth.

That said, I have been doing this for seventeen years. I wish to focus on other areas of my life that I have found the stresses of business ownership make it difficult to do. I would not be moving on if I were not handing the reins to Paul — we share a vision of what G&S is and what it could be, and G&S will continue to grow, innovate, and entertain in his hands. I am excited to see what Paul accomplishes in the future, and even more excited be a part of it.”

Paul for his part, had this to say:
“I will forever be grateful to Ed for having the faith to hire me on as Store Manager in 2010, giving me stewardship of the store and community that he had built. From day one I acted as if I owned the place, and he never begrudged me that! I took a lot of personal pride in the store very early on and I am absolutely in love with what we have built at Games and Stuff. Ed gave me the freedom to craft the store the way I wanted to, and we wouldn’t be here today without his trust in me. So it is with great pleasure that can now say that I am the owner of Games and Stuff and I look forward to many great things to come.”

Please join us all in congratulating both Paul and Ed in this new endeavor.

So with all of that being said, some of you may have noticed that we didn’t have our annual Games and Stuff Birthday event this spring, and that’s because we were holding off for this announcement. But now we’ve got something special planned.

CLICK HERE to find out more about the GAMES AND STUFF CELEBRATION happening on Saturday May 6th, including an in-store appearance by Special Guest and roleplaying game Rock Star Ken Hite!

This will truly be a store-wide celebration, and we hope that you’ll join us.
