A new store set to open in Princes Quay next week will be a treasure trove for gaming geeks and movie/comic book nerds, with Game of Thrones, Pokemon and a whole host of gaming merchandise available to purchase.
Run by the team behind popular online retailer GeekStore.com, this will be the company’s first physical store, opening on Level 2, by Millies Cookies, on Saturday 22 June.
The new store will focus on “geek” merchandise and clothing inspired by video games, movies, comic books and more. Customers will be able to purchase unique merchandise from the likes of the Avengers, Game of Thrones, Pokemon, Mortal Kombat, The Legend of Zelda, POP! Vinyl and many others.
Andy Sparrow from Geek Store, said:
“Our online business has been a huge success, but we felt the time was right to branch out and launch a physical store, as many of our customers like to browse what we have to offer and get their hands on our high quality merchandise before they decide what to buy.
“Hull was the perfect choice for us – we wanted to bring something fresh and new and Princes Quay seemed like a natural fit, being right in the heart of the city and with a great mix of stores that our customers will love. Many of our items can’t be found anywhere else, so Hull shoppers will be the first to see some of the unique memorabilia we have. We can’t wait to get started.”
Items on offer will include clothing, action figures, accessories, candles, stationery, doormats, plushies, kitchen accessories and more. Shoppers will also be able to see prototypes of new replica arcade machines, which will be available for the first time in the UK.
On their opening day, special guests will be making an appearance including
Princes Quay Centre Manager John Magee, said:

Geek Store will really bring our East Arcade to life and they have some brilliant launch activities scheduled which will be promoted across our social media accounts and website.
“We’re always looking to develop our offering and we’ve got some really exciting things lined up, with other new store announcements coming soon – keep your eyes peeled.”
