Looking for info on gaming store/group/company in Fitchburg

I hope this is okay to post. I thought there might a "Looking for..." type thread, but I don't see one.

On Saturday afternoon I was in line to check out L.A. Noire. About 15 feet away I saw a group of three or so guys wearing black shirts, and on the back was the name of a company, [Something] Games (I think), Fitchburg, MA, and their website. Because I was so close to getting into the demo and the expo hall was closing soon, I didn't want to get out of line to see what they were about and hoped I would find them again. Plus they were walking away from the booth. Unfortunately I didn't see them again.

Is anyone one the forums part of that group/company/store/whatever it is, or know anything about it? I live in Leominster so I was really curious to see what they were about. By the time I got to a computer I totally forgot the name I saw (should have jotted it down on in my iPhone notes) and various Google searches haven't helped.

Thanks.

    The only one I know of in Fitchburg is "That's Entertainment" over on John Fitch. It's been a long time since I've been there and I don't recall being super-impressed with it, but again, been a long time so things may have changed.

    Yeah, it definitely wasn't That's Entertainment. I've only been there recently so I don't know what it was like before, but I like their store. Wish I could get over there more.

    You're thinking of Haven Gaming - they're just opening down the street from That's Entertainment (I'm not sure if they've even opened yet?)

    I love That's Entertainment (thatse.com), but they're more a comic book shop with some used games than a game store.

    Shit! You're from Fitchburg as well? I thought I was the only one.

    There used to be a gaming cafe a long time ago called iGameSpot. Man, that was where its at.

    I'm from Fitchburg as well and I was unaware of Haven Gaming, although I haven't really ever been into card or tabletop games so I haven't been a part of the local game stores too much. A friend of mine played Magic down at a game store at Parkhill Plaza ridiculously close to where I live, but he didn't last too long due to a break-in, I hear.

    They're opening up next month. They're going to be in the plaza on John Fitch that has the movie theater in it.
