Entertainment / Sat 3rd Dec 2022 at 11:10am

TOM Stuart is bringing Geek Retreat, the geek culture retailer, gaming café and events venue rolled into one, to The Harvey Centre, Harlow today (Saturday, 3rd December).

Sited at Geek Retreat, Unit 50, The Harvey Centre, Harlow, CM20 1XR, it will offer the community a safe, friendly environment where people can come and enjoy their shared interests.  Fans of Marvel, Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh! To Dungeons & Dragons and Pokémon  – and even traditional board games, are welcome at the store and can meet and play their hobbies in the café.  Customers can enjoy a high-quality menu with vegetarian & vegan options, ensuring there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.

Making sure that Geek Retreat provides an inclusive, welcoming, and social environment for its more vulnerable customers, like those on the autistic spectrum, or with mental health issues is also extremely important. 

Tom said:

“We are really excited to bring Geek Retreat to the heart of the Harlow community.  It offers something very different on the high street, a place to play and have fun, but also somewhere that it safe, inclusive and where people with the love of geek culture and games can meet and make friends.”

The Geek Retreat franchise, which opened its first store in Glasgow in 2013, now has over 50 stores, reflecting its huge popularity on the high street because it offers local communities and individuals a safe and inclusive place to enjoy their hobbies and interests. Geek Retreat has enhanced its business strategy to ensure its stores continue to increase turnover, profitability and customer feedback ratings in a challenging economic climate and as the cost-of-living crisis bites.  This includes significant investment and support to help its stores become profitable and resilient enough to weather the ongoing economic uncertainty and cost of living crisis, as the high street recovers from the devastating effects of the pandemic.
