Damnnnn. I’m hoping you bring some fire products with your post next week. Super excited!Warehousing costs directly next to a port are expensive; utilizing trains and getting a location slightly more inland is more more cost effective. I wouldn't see a huge cost savings if I were in NY (my usual port of entry)
Though I am gonna say EST is a lot more crowded than you think with a lot of QoL services baked in and spreading even thinner is probably not gonna end as good as you think it will especially if you're maintaining a warehouse in LA as well.
I mean. Total population doesn't necessarily mean that the population of arcade enthusiasts is higher in those states. Have you seen how many arcade dudes are in Mass?IMO NY state, as the population from NY,Ohio, Michigan and Pa Trump the rest of the east coast. More people equals more sales
This man speaks the truth, however I'd change it to New England as a whole. This area by far has the most Japanese arcade enthusiasts I've run across besides CA.I mean.

Or Alabama for some reason.
Probably makes more sense to take east coast orders. Then see where the majority lie, and THEN deal with where.
Yep .. actually I-95 is two miles to the east of me and Highway 17 is about 4 miles to the west of me. All through Georgia 17 and I-95 cross each other quite a few times.North Carolina works for me too. If you find a location along Highway 17 you can drive all the way from Florida to New York on one road.
I will second that. As part of that Tampa group there would likely be some interest; mid-coast seems like the best option to be but then again I know nothing about logistics.@kcarcadegame most likely the only way you are going to get a true feel for all of this is if you post a forum vote / poll with a list of cities you have in mind along the east coast and see which one gets the most individual votes.
I know a good 20-30 people (maybe more) in the Orlando / Tampa area like @owlnonymous and gang would be all over this. We have a group up north saying it would be better up there .. the group of us in the middle saying middle US is better .. I have not really seen the Floridians chime in much yet, but trust me there are ALLOT of them enough to where there's probably 20ish barcades/arcades spread out through Florida now. Shoot this does not even bring into account the large contingents in northern Illinois, Texas, and Ohio.
*edit* @kcarcadegame I even believe some of those Floridians just recently flew out to meet you and arrange a large purchase which includes a four player Darius cab .. also I know recently an Orlando group dropped the cash to buy 20-25 Chewlix cabs in one shot.
Same. I live very close to the port of Newark... so I obviously have my preferences about port of entry.totally interested in seeing where this goes.
