Default Just Opened a Store in Hong Kong!

A little background: I moved back to HK about a year ago and felt that prices at the LCS were too high. I started ordering bulk online (to justify shipping costs). My buddy and I realized that we were getting a lot of product and that there was enough demand to open our own store. So I happily present Rainbow Smooth Sports Cards! Lots of wax, lots of singles, most of my PC is in there too (love showing it off ). Don't judge us too much based on the pics. We're still organizing our displays, and we're doubling our inventory in the next couple weeks.

Rainbow Smooth Sports Cards
Unit 1803 Lucky Centre
165-171 Wan Chai Road
Wan Chai, Hong Kong

+852 3996 8522
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rainb...274?ref=stream

PS - I picked the name from a list of companies that my partner owns. Might actually have some meaning if I ever complete a chrome rainbow. Those pesky superfractors!

Dude I watched a Jay/Jason run through probably $20,000 worth of high end products on blowout's Breakers.tv site.... First thoughts were Haiku.

My family is from China, not in Hong Kong though. I have never seen a LCS in China, hows business? I figured it would be more welcomed in HK.

I've never seen a LCS in China either, but I've bought from mainland sellers a few times (I'm sure a lot of people have). The hobby has been established in HK for some time. I know of one store that has been around for over 20 years!

My boss is a very eccentric man. He thinks that 9 days in Antarctica, along with 4 days of traveling would be a good team-building exercise. But I'm convinced he is scoping out a location for his evil lair.
