Deal of the Week | October 25, 2013: All Games in Stock $1.99 Each

Every Game Title in Stock $1.99 eachWe’ll be honest with you: We’ve got game titles sitting on our shelves that have been there for years.

Software distribution has been transitioning to online downloads for a while now – especially for games – and we kind of got caught off guard.

So break the piggy bank and head on down to our Bend or Medford store soon. All games in stock are $1.99. The good ones are going to go first and fast, so don’t delay!

Give our troops a movie night.

We’ve partnered with Charter Media, History, and other local businesses to collect DVDs from now through December to send to our troops abroad. Even children’s titles are welcome – they’ll be distributed to servicemen’s and servicewomen’s families, right here in the US.

Give our troops a movie night - bring your DVDs into Connecting Point

Protecting our country can be alternately ultra-dangerous and ultra-boring. Downtime in remote parts of the world can be really tedious, and the entertainment options limited. That movie on DVD you donate can help make the time pass a little more enjoyably.

So we ask you to look around your home, see what DVDs you might be willing to donate – and the bring them in to the collection box here at the Medford store. We’d like to fill the box to bursting! Read more here.
