Quote from Sigma-X »The important thing to know about Craig Wescoe is that he does not wash his hands after pooping.
My buddy and I witnessed this at a PTQ last summer. He did terrible things to the toilet and then just walked out the door like that's a thing.
I feel it is important to mention this as often as possible.
Quote from Umezete
They haven't directly jipped or sent damaged cards out labeled mint like some stores do.

Generally pages at 11 and on talk about the store periodically.
Quote from SheeraIf I ran a similar shop nowadays, I'd adopt a policy of shipping out "not more than a playset per order of any cards that are only sparcely in stock." This price-jumping of older cards happens far too often, recently, to just let the first person who happens to have teh info and teh ca$h cash in on the whole revenue.
Last week, in Germany Cloudstone Curio became hyped quite a bit due to a combination of renewed demand (spurted by success of the Extended Elves deck) and some unforeseen method of market manipulation (assumedly done by some unknown private person who intended to sell their own copies for a premium by turning all other offers at the same place 'invisible' for the better period of a day). All available fix-priced stock got emptied from the German market in the wake of that manipulation, then got re-listed within a price range of 300% to 1000% of the previous prices (and usually not by the same vendors).
And that happened to a card which should actually be quite available due to it's rather recent printing in a standalone set. What would you do, if you ran a shop? Why ship out more than four copies to a single person?
(I concede that not delivering at all is another problem, though. ;))
Quote from Lt. Quattroi'm not surprised that this store sounds fishy, they are promoting at gamelot in san antonio where gamelot will display and sell cards for them, and mtgfanatic will give out $10 gift cards and half a box of boosters for top 8.
while its nice to have price support for once at my local game store, i don't know how long this can last.
