Default What would make you change?

I am looking to start up a shop to sell warhammer products, I know what most warhammer fans are fiercely loyal to their usual store.

My question is this:

What would make you shop somewhere new?
Would it be price? Availability? The service? Or is it something else?

Please post and let me know what would make [i]YOU[i] change where you get your goods?

Price and service (Mainly flexibility)

welcome to heresy and it would be price and service that would get me to change, do not mind paying slightly more if I can get what I want when I want it how I want it, and the same applies buying warhammer products!!!!!!!!!!

Price and service. I recently had a very bad experience with Maelstrom, waiting 6 weeks before I cancelled an order. That same day I placed the same order with buyforless. I received an email confirming the order despatched 2 hours after that, and it arrived three days later. That is the kind of service I think we are all looking for.

Most good shops of course have painting tables and gaming tables. My reason for changing from my usual spot would be. MORE ROOM. More community competitons. I mean we have one for 40k like once a month for two days. That's not enough.
Willingness to order pieces that may be out of stock. Just make them pay a non-refundable down payment.(Trust me on this, unless you know someone well, or are just trusting, don't order something you don't carry on the without getting that. Or you may be stuck with it forever.

Get a group of employees who LOVE to play beginner games, I would have never made it into the hobby, without the store employees who were willing to play test games. (sometimes with unpainted store models, or whatever) To physically teach the game. I have seen hundreds of purchases at my local Tower Games. Because they were just SHOWN how to play a game of 40k. (They actually double their sales by having a Warmachine/Hordes 'expert') by playing these practice games. Then they waltz them over to the models and BAM big sale.

Make your shop a relaxing atmosphere, sell beverages and snacks. People will want to chill a bit during big matches.
Just some things off the top of my head.
