Hi guys and gals,
My name is Ben Christensen. Owner of Ben’s Game Zone. Like most of you, I grew up in a middle to low class income household. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Times were tough many times, but what we had was love and fundamentals in our family, and in my eyes that’s what life is all about. Family, friends and love. This is just a bonus, what I get to do. I love video games, and I love helping people. We are not a chain. We don’t go off of computers to tell you what we can rip you off for to get your product. We are a family owned business, that believes in everybody doing what’s right in life to continue on.
One of my biggest trials in life was what my mother always told me. Treat others the way you want to be treated. So we do! Here at our store we treat you like family. We offer the lowest prices in town on products and with the highest trade in value possible. If its something we have 600 copies of we aren’t going to tell you we can give you a dime. We will tell you that it would be better to give that to your younger siblings or such. I was blessed to have the opportunity to do this with the guidance of God, and with my grandpa’s skills of his music store business while I hung out there during the summers and watched what they did. I am also blessed that we were able to start off with the opportunity to manage a thrift store with my dad, which started this work we do now.
We love to relive our childhood or retro days and that is what BGZ brings to the table. We love retro games as well as the new ones. When you come in to our store if you ask us what we thought about a certain game you are going to buy that I have 12 copies of, most retailers will try to “sell” it to you. We will simply tell the truth. Look a lot of people have told me that was a terrible game, and then I would recommend a fantastic game. This store is built on honesty, passion, and good will.
I would like to thank all of you for making this dream of mine come true. Without you guys, we wouldn’t have Ben’s Game Zone. Without the help of my brothers and sisters we wouldn’t have our work done nearly as fast, or our signs made. Thank you to everyone out there, and please realize you can achieve anything in life as long as you work hard on it and dedicate your time. If I haven’t met you personally well then come on in, and let me know about you. We work on a personal level here. See you soon.
