Exactly the same thing happened to my local hobby shop; "Hidden Fortress" here, on the other side of the Atlantic. Again, the problem was that there were a lot of people who would frequent it to play games (everything from MTG to Carcassonne to AD&D), but no one ever seemed to buy anything.

I think part of the problem might have been that the staff also played the games, so (and this only happens in game stores) whenever people did want to buy things they would have to ask "can I buy this please"...

The Dungeon, the gaming store I frequented closed shortly after I left
Chicago. They did their best to provide a good place to play games in
the store, but eventually one of the reasons they closed was that
everyone would play there, but few people purchased their products in
the store. Or at least that's what they said.

I miss the place.
