Default Bloomington / Normal Illinois Shop Potential

Figured I would tap the community here to gauge interest in a potential LCS / collectible toy store in Bloomington / Normal.

Considering coming back for my Doctorate in Economics and would have some money to play with.

Would need a Manager and staff, but I would be present quite a bit.

There is currently one shop “Collectible Corner” which seems decent enough, but limited. I would look for a location closer to campus, and hopefully do some things I’ve seen around the country as I’m traveling that seem to help drive consistent sales.

The big question is not what should I do with the shop, more if there is enough of a collecting community to support a quality LCS

I know the Richters tried back in the day and it never really worked out. We had a spot in downtown Bloomington that was kind of grimy and I got most of my cards at Abe’s Carmelcorn.

Anyways, let me know what anyone in that area thinks
