COVID Update #5 - New Lockdown

by Vince D'Agostino

Hi friends!  Hamilton is entering lockdown again this Monday, which means in-store shopping will no longer be allowed. This means that for the time being, all purchases have to be made through our online store for pick-up, local delivery or to be mailed.  Local Delivery To help make this process easier for everyone during the holiday season, we will be offering local delivery in the Hamilton, Dundas and Ancaster area, delivering as far east as the Red Hill Valley Parkway for $3.49. You will need to select local delivery when you check out online. Deliveries will be made on Wednesdays for orders received before Monday at 5:00pm.  Pick Up Our current open hours will stay the same, but we will only be available to you make curbside pickups. We will have a small kiosk set up at the front door for you to grab your orders contact-free. Buylist and Pay In-Store Option Pay In-Store will no longer be an option. If you have cards to trade-in towards a purchase, you will need to drop off your buylist during pick up hours and wait for it to be processed before applying it towards a purchase. We encourage using our buylist function on the website to get estimates of your buylist value and to facilitate this process. Additionally, you can mail in your buylist and we can process it for you beforehand. Another huge thank you to all our customers who have supported us through the pandemic. It's been a pretty wild past year for everyone, Waypoint included, and we appreciate you hanging on with us for the ride - it means so much to have a great community. We hope you have a safe and warm holiday season! We can't wait to see you all in store again soon.

Commander Legends Update

Commander Legends Update

by Vince D'Agostino

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and is excited about the release of Commander Legends in the coming weeks! I want to clarify some confusion regarding the release of this product and how preorders will be delivered.   I unfortunately misunderstood the release and prerelease dates for the set when I posted the preorder product (which had the original release date at November 13). The actual release date of this set is November 20th. We had a small allocation of boxes available for presale that included the buy-a-box promo as well as an early pickup date. Those boxes are going to be available on a first come, first served basis.    If you preordered a box of Commander Legends - check your order number. If it is before the number #3607, you are able to pick your order up on Friday the 13th and it will include a buy-a-box promo. Unfortunately the rest of the orders will be shipped out starting the following Tuesday. I know this isn't ideal but unfortunately there is still a prerelease event for this product (that I misunderstood). I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.   Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!   Vince

COVID Update #5: Downsizing

COVID Update #5: Downsizing

by Vince D'Agostino

Hello everyone, We have some news to share. COVID has created an environment that is we feel is unsafe for a board game cafe to operate in, and we don't foresee things getting better anytime soon. We have chosen to temporarily downsize the store given the increasing COVID risk and the impact it has had on our business and the community. In order to be fully transparent with you all, I'm going to outline the changes as best we can here. Here is the 'bad' news: 1) We have put board game rentals on hiatus. Our collection is being held in storage for the time being. To put it bluntly, organizing people into groups indoors to play board games is an incredibly difficult challenge in the current landscape and we don't feel comfortable doing it for a long time. This is a long term change for the store - we don't expect to have board games for rent in the shop again for at least another 12 months. 2) We are no longer serving food or drinks. This one really sucks, as we loved being able to serve up some great drinks and snacks, but again the business model of having groups indoors right now is something that we want to avoid at all costs. Like the board game rentals, this is another long term change. We don't expect to be back in the food or drink business until at least the end of next year. 3) We will no longer be operating in the main storefront. For those of you that have been to our shop, we had two units in the building - the storefront unit and the playroom in the back where tournaments were held and additional seating was provided. We are now operating the store out of that back room. The new entrance to the store can be seen in the image of this post. We will have new signage up ASAP. 4) We are temporarily suspending in-store play (again). We tried for a few weeks to get commander tournaments running in the store and we ran a few Zendikar Prerelease events, but with the recent rise in cases we are going to sit back and wait for more information before moving forward with in-store play again. All of that being said, there is a silver lining here: 1) We are expanding our retail presence. We have been working tirelessly to get as much inventory as possible online for everyone - now that we are focused entirely on retail you should expect to see a lot more product depth, new product lines,  and features on our website in the coming months. In addition, there are some other media projects that we are excited to get to work on that will be announced in the future.  2) We are working to reduce the time you need to spend at the shop. The online store is a fantastic tool to ensure that your order gets processed ahead of time. This also includes buylists! By using the online store for your shopping needs and choosing to pick up locally, you help minimize the risk of COVID exposure for yourself and our staff, and we greatly appreciate those who are already using the website for their local orders. As much as we want to see you all right now, it's not the right time to be hanging out indoors if it can be avoided. We can't say enough how important your support has been over these trying months. In uncertain times like this having the Waypoint community stay involved and supporting us with your purchases has been a bright spot on a dark year. Again, this is just a temporary change. We aren't going anywhere - this is simply us adapting to the current climate. We look forward to when we can see you all in-store again. Until then, stay safe and stay tuned in to what we have in store!
