As hinted towards last time, we have some major updates to announce throughout the year as part of our major comeback move. The first and biggest one for 2021 we have is that the Geek Merchants Guild is going to be part of The City of Malden’s first annual Summer Festivities event! As part of Boston’s state-wide Rapid Recovery program, each county throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is receiving funding to help small businesses get back on their feet after a long, hard struggle from COVID.
Since the GMG is based in Malden, we’re certainly up to doing our part to, not only help the organization itself get back on the path to solid footing, but to help-out the other local arts & culture communities, especially the ones located in Malden Center’s Gaming District. Starting June 12th all the way through August 21st on every other weekend through-out the course of the daytime, each of the gaming and geek fandom-catered businesses, including Boda Borg, Spicy World, Wanyu Gaming Café and New England Comics are going to be offering attractions to all by-passers of the area. This is where we come-in to help promote the even smaller vendors to be seen and patronized. This includes merchant tables, a fun workshop corner for people of all ages, and even cosplay performances from the stage that the city will have as part of the program. The great thing about our inclusion in this is that, while the program itself is focused on Malden-specific businesses, out-of-town entities and agents nested under arts organizations like us get to participate as well!
This is a great opportunity for everyone looking to show their works and services. We are all extremely excited and working diligently with everyone else already involved to make come together as quickly and surely as possible. The more people we can get on-board, the better! We will certainly post more details as they become available, so stay tuned, be sure to check-out our available positions, and please feel free to send us any inquiries and feedback until then!
Hey there fandom goers and welcome to our new and improved website!
After a long, silent hiatus of re-planning and remodeling, we at the Geek Merchants Guild are excited to say we are finally looking to get things back into gear. It's certainly been a rough ride for so many people over these past several months due to the unpleasant inconvenience and hardships brought-on from the devastating COVID19 pandemic. So many families, businesses, and communities alike were struck hard in ways that compromised the health and security of too many loved ones, careers, and resources. All of us here at the GMG were undoudetly no exemption to these consequences as well.
Thankfully, however, now that vaccines have been developed and are being made available to the general public and with the amazing cooperation of the people of Massachusetts in getting their necessary dosages, we are finally starting to see a heartening number of the local businesses and communities enter their reopening phases. Now is the time for us to do the same!
That is why we want to thank each and every one of you who have actively supported us thus far and hope you look forward to a fun and engaging year with us as we roll-out news our fresh plans and projects in the coming weeks!
