There’s a giant new video game warehouse in St. Pete, and it’s basically a gaming museum

M&M Video Games has been in the Sunshine City for years, But this past week the owners said goodbye to their shop on 54th Street and have opened in a huge warehouse at 3110 44th Avenue North.

The shop is home to the newest gaming gems and consoles, but it’s also a trip down pixelated memory lane. Their shelves are lined with Nintendo’s, Atari’s, Sega’s and Playstation’s most iconic games. That’s right, you can get your N64 fix here.

The store offers repair services for old games

Do you have an old game or disc that needs to be cleaned or repaired? The shop does disc resurfacing, cart repair, laser repair and CPU reflow for customers. We’re currently staring longingly at an old copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time.

The 44th Avenue shop’s soft opening event is set for Saturday, March 9 from 7pm-11pm. M&M Games also has shops in Largo, Seminole and Clearwater.

New game drops teased daily
