If you've been by 86 E. Third St. recently, you've likely seen the store-for-rent sign outside here between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
Shop ownership has confirmed that the retail business is closing later this month after 15 years.
Per a message on its website:
I am sad to inform you that 8 Bit And Up Video Games will be closing its retail doors on Sept. 23rd, 2023. After more than 15 years, it's time to retire! I want to thank everybody who has supported us all these years.
The shop, a fantastic time capsule for video games of the 1980s and 1990s, will have a presence on eBay.
