UPDATE APRIL 27

This past week has been amazing in the response we have had from all of you, so first, thank you so very much for supporting us, supporting local, and supporting the Colorado stay safe initiative. Rebecca and I are working to get all orders and requests done in the order they are received.

WEBSTORE
We have also opened up our webstore so you can see what we have in stock.
https://petriesgames.com/shop/
Please note that all products have to be individually updated with descriptions and photos and it takes time, so not everything has been updated, but does give you an idea of what is available. You can either check out through the webstore or call us to make an order. We are still working on it and are aware that there are some design issues.  We are working on as I write this, so keep checking back to see updates and changes.

SAFER AT HOME
Next week, Colorado moves from the “Stay at Home” to “Safer at Home” so we will be changing our hours and ways of doing business to reflect this change. For specific questions, please refer to the following document put out by the El Paso County offices:

This means we will continue to be closed to the public  that this week but we will be taking phone orders
M-F from 1pm to 5pm with shipping and deliveries as time allows. We will then take Sat-Mon off to prepare for the soft-opening. Starting May 5, we will open the store to less than 10 people at a time. Hours will be similar to our traditional hours but closing at 6pm.
Tue-Fri: 12:30-6pm
Sat 10-6pm
Sun 12:30-6pm

During these hours please help us adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Limit the number of people per party so more individuals may come in at a time.
  • Keep to the 6 foot rule whenever possible.
  • Face masks are strongly encouraged.

CALENDAR EVENTS
Events will continue to be shut down until the time that we are allowed to have gatherings of more than 10 people.

ONLINE EVENTS
Friday Night Magic will continue to give out codes to folks that send their Arena screenshots to us in email through this week.

Don’t forget to check out our Gaming from a Distance page for ideas on how to play board games from home, if you haven’t already.

The Magic: Ikoria release will most likely be a pickup and take-home event. We are offering preorders and walk in deals for that event, so call or email us with specific questions.

We still have a few Pokemon release take-home event deals available so anyone that missed that announcement last week, please contact the store right away while product is still available.

ORDERS & INDUSTRY UPDATE
Asmodee has moved all releases and restocks to the first of June. We have the ability to order in some of the product from Asmodee directly but only older product that was released before COVID19.

The list of manufacturers that are offering programs to benefit your local store is staggering. We have some of the companies listed but not all. If you would like to order a game from a publisher directly, please ask if they have anything to benefit your local stores or contact us first so we can get you set up. We’re working hard to get all of the companies set up still so knowing you may be interested will bump that publisher to the top of our list.

OTHER NEWS
The mystery box was such a huge success that we have chosen to stop taking orders at this time. If we are able to open it back up to you, we will let you know via facebook and our website. Thank you to all of you that participated.

Thank you again for being a part of the family. We look forward to serving you to the best of our abilities,

Cameron & Rebecca Crawford
