We just wanted to let everyone know we have currently started the process of switching off of Square. The site is still up and can be purchased from. We are excited to be switching to our new Point of Sale which will integrate web, In store, and some other exciting TCG things that will come on line soon. So if you see categories missing off of the Square site don’t fear we still have those items and you can call to do curbside or delivery, or stop in and get them. We should have the new online shopping site ready next week.
The Dork Den will be open for in-store shopping starting Monday, May. 18th. Our hours will be Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm, and Sundays 12-5. We will also be closed on Monday, May 25th, for Memorial Day.
When we reopen, things will be different as we adapt to the COVID-19 situation. All our in-store events are cancelled until further notice. Our Gaming Room is closed to the public at this time, as is our demo game library.
During the Covid 19 emergency we will not be accepting returns or exchanges for the safety of our customers so please be certain of your purchases.
Customers in our retail area will be limited to 6 customers maximum. While we are not requiring customers to wear face masks, they are strongly encouraged. Customers will be expected to follow social distancing guidelines while in the store as much as possible. If you are ill please stay home. We have also increased our sanitizing procedures to provide a clean environment – commonly used surfaces will be cleaned between each customer.
Customers who wish to look through our Magic singles please do so from home via our TCGplayer store or on their phones. No instore stations will be provided at this time.
If you prefer you can still order online and pick up in store for faster service. Select in store pick up when placing your order and we’ll let you know when it’s ready. Our e-commerce site is https://the-dork-den.square.site/

The Dork Den message regarding COVID-19 Update Wednesday April 8th:
Today we got word from the Governor that the Stay Home Minnesota order is extended until May 4th. Which pushes out our reopening up another few weeks. As difficult as this is we continue to do our part to keep everyone safe.
We are looking forward to gaming with all of you when this is over.

Starting today Monday, March 16th the Dork Den will be suspending all Organized Play events until April 1st. We will continue to monitor the situation and may change this date if necessary. Additionally, we will be adjusting the use of our gaming space. We will be adjusting the seating in order to provide more space between groups. In our event space, we are limiting use to 4 people per table, and a maximum of 16 people. We understand that people will be looking for places to go as schools, businesses, and events close or are cancelled, and as such will be taking additional measures to protect the safety of those who choose to come to our store.
We will remain open during our regular hours. M-Sat 11A-10P and Sunday 11a-7pm
Please keep in mind that if you are feeling ill in any way that we would appreciate it if you stayed home. We have this expectation of our patrons as well as ourselves.
We will continue to assess the situation and keep you up to date.
We wish everyone safety during the trying time. Thank you for your support.
