The Last Word has opened its doors in a new, bigger space, located three miles from its former location. They are now housing their goods in a historic building, right on the light rail line, just shy of where Eastway hits North Tryon. Owners Elizabeth Pope, and sons Matthew and Marshall Hicks, opened the store in 2010, to sell the kinds of merchandise they love. The store has a casual, friendly atmosphere with music playing and plenty of seating. Attentive employees that you can tell are glad to be there are a wonderful touch.

If you want to buy and sell Magic The Gathering cards - this is your place. If you enjoy digging through crates of vinyl - this is your jam. If you need to update your video game collection - there's everything from old school to the newest thing. If you're just looking for some affordable DVDs - this is also a great spot for you. From anime, to cookbooks, to kids books, there is literally something for everyone. The buy counter is open six days a week to purchase your gently used items for cash and/or store credit, so the inventory is always changing.

This new space has more room for community events. Writers groups, poetry slams, art classes, book signings, as well as our own in-house bookclub, home school meetups, and Magic The Gathering tournaments, take place regularly. Future additions to the store include a coffeeshop to add to your in-store experience and selling local crafts to go with the local CDs and local author's books already for sale. The name of the store sounds like they're attempting to end an argument.  I like to imagine it's an argument won - that people still read.  Check their website for events and specials. Stop in and tell 'em My City Magazine sent you.
