About Us @ Gamers in Omaha & Lincoln, NE
On September 26th, 2018 all Gamers locations silently closed for business. Another local video game store owner by the name of David Mitchell saw this as an opportunity to strike a deal with the previous owner and reopen some of the store locations.
David Mitchell originally opened his video game store/ video game repair shop back when he was 19. He originally started repairing game consoles from his mother’s basement in North Omaha at the age of 14 off a website known as Craigslist. He had two stores opened by the age of 21 both known as Game Repair Shop where he sold video games and did the repair.
After striking a deal with the previous ownership David Mitchell closed his previous game stores to fully focus on rebuilding Gamers. On February 10th, 2019 (a day after David Mitchell turn 26 years old) David Mitchell reopened his first location on 124th and Center in Omaha, NE.
Then the second one on June 29th on 27th and Superior in Lincoln. For the first time ever a Gamers location in the Westroads mall on thanksgiving of 2019. David Mitchell plans to keep the Gamers name and brand alive.
