Beep Beep Beep…

Please assist our store reorganization by clearing anything breakable from the lockers and display cases by June 18th. Hey PI-Fans, We're going to be taking the opportunity to do some sprucing up of our store in the month of June, and while we're not going to be closed during this period, we're still going to have plenty of things moving around.* While we will do everything within our power to ensure the safety of items remaining in our store, some of us have unfortunately not passed our P-5000 Power Loader certification exams, and we cannot be entirely certain about the contents of the Legendary Encounters: Aliens deckbuilding game. To minimize risk to anything fragile currently in our store, we'd like to request that those customers who have miniatures or possessions stored in their lockers or within our display cases consider removing their breakables from our store for a few days from June 18th onwards. Thanks for your attention.. - [...]
