An Evansville game/toy store is reopening at a new, independent location after losing almost everything in a large fire in May.
Evansville Toys & Games says it will hold a grand opening at its new location of 3810 E Morgan Ave. after losing almost all of its inventory in the arson of the Diamond Flea Market.
The grand opening event will be held on Saturday, July 10, starting at 10:00 a.m.
"Nearly two months ago we lost nearly all of our inventory in the Diamond Flea Market fire," the store said in a Facebook post. "We lost a huge amount of irreplaceable items. Thankfully no one was physically hurt."
"We did not have insurance so this was very difficult to get this together in less than a month and a half," the post went on to say. "It’s because of everyone’s love and support we are able to come back and open after the tragedy so fast."
The owner says Saturday's grand opening event will feature special guests Nathan Girten, owner of U-Figure it out, and popular YouTuber/Author Pixel Dan.
Pixel Dan will be selling and signing his book "The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" and Nathan will be taking orders for his custom action figures, according to the store's post.
Evansville Toys & Games says it buys and sells video games, comic books, trading cards, vintage toys, and more.
