Gathering Ground began with a 5.000 square foot retail store that mainly supplied Magic the Gathering®. We were one of the first stores in our area and therefore held all of the big tournaments and eventually became known as "THE" place to go for not only Magic, but all types of gaming. A few years later, after the beanie babies craze, the Pokémon® phenomenon hit and our store became too small for the overwhelming amount of customers that came pouring in. The local news channels were constantly at our door wanting to film the craze, which consisted of extremely long lines, traffic jams to pull in/out of our lot, and people crowded in our store like sardines. All this coupled with our growing website told us it time to move
Today, we currently have a combined space of over 20,000 square feet consisting of offices, warehouse, and 10,000 square feet dedicated to just tables for gaming! We have by far the largest space in the St. Louis area for tournaments. Come by and check us out if you are ever in the neighborhood, we bend over backwards to make our entire realm of customers feel welcome.
Being in Saint Louis, Missouri creates an ideal central location for us in the United States, which helps us to ship all over the country in a speedy fashion. Our ability to ship and receive internationally also gives us the opportunity to provide you with the latest and greatest products from all over the world. Whether you or your company needs a few single items, or a large quantity of palletized products shipped anywhere in the world, we can handle it.
We carry mainline products including:
- Magic the Gathering®
- Lord of the Rings®
More specifically, we carry the largest selection of Magic the Gathering singles, packs and boxes in the U.S. If you looking for the older Magic stuff, we have it all. The same can be said for the hottest miniatures games, such as Axis and Allies and HeroClix. We also offer a HUGE variety of supplies that are extremely well priced and always in stock. If you have not already given us a chance, please do, we are positive that you will be glad you did.
Thank You, From the Staff at The Ground!
