MVP016: Redcap’s Corner with Benn Roe and Adam Friedman

Have you ever wondered what might happen if you opened a friendly local game store with a $20 000 credit card limit? Benn Roe and Adam Friedman come on to the Manaverse Podcast and share how it worked out for them. Spoiler alert: they're doing great despite the tiny budget.

This interview goes deep into what makes Redcap's Corner a great place to play in Philadelphia. We get into Redcap's products, layout, competitors, as well as the strategies Benn and Adam used to grow a tiny business struggling to survive to running two locations serving a massive community.

During the course of the episode we talk about:

  • Protecting your store from theft
  • How to manage partnerships
  • Interacting with "competitors", treating other store owners as allies instead
  • Building a customized card management system for your business
  • The best way to set Magic card prices for your area
  • Cool tech that can pump up the atmosphere of your store
