The World's Largest Game Store! With over 13,000 sq. ft. of display and gaming space, the Sentry Box is a Mecca for those interested in fantasy, science fiction, or military games, books and miniatures. The policy of the Sentry Box was always 'If it's in print, we'll try to stock it.' Times have changed and we can't quite do that any more but we try hard and have over 100,000 different items in stock.more...
“I’ve always had a passion for games, that’s why I got into this business…I wanted cheap games for myself,” laughs Gordon Johansen, owner of Sentry Box. “That’s why we got into science fiction as well; we had some extra space when we moved one time, so I thought, ‘ok, what do I like? Oh, I read a lot of science fiction, so I’m going to bring a lot of these in and save myself some money!’”
Since he bought the original tiny 250 sq ft. shop from a non-gamer in 1980, Gordon’s passion for games has built a community of gamers of all genres, which supports what has since become the world’s largest game store.
“It really freaks people out when you say over 100,000 different products,” admits Gordon. The 13,000 sq ft store truly has something, if not everything, for every gamer. If you’re anything like Gordon and his team, you likely enjoy many of the various types of games, so no matter how you define yourself within the genre, Sentry Box can satisfy your gaming passion.
For those who want to try before you buy, Sentry Box also boasts a large games library, so you can play in the store or sign games out and take them home to see if your friends will play with you.
The Sentry Box is Canada’s largest adventure gaming, science fiction and fantasy speciality bookstore. The store also features an excellent selection of board games, card games, comics, figurines and pop-culture memorabilia. Tables are set up for customers who want a quiet place to spend an afternoon gaming or painting models. On the store’s upper level, you’ll find a sizeable collection of military models and books. Tournaments and special events are held regularly.
More than merely a bookstore, Sentry Box sells games, miniatures and much more as well. However, if you’re looking for a hard-to-find science fiction or fantasy title, drop in here and chances are, if they don’t carry it, they’ll order it in for you.
