Your crazy Smile No jk. If your desire is to bring more people into magic, your heart is in the right place and while you won't get rich, I wish your much success.
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!

Call me crazy, but I recently opened a magic shop in Montreal. The fact is, I love being surrounded by magic and talking magic with all kinds of magical people. It’s a labour of love for the most part, but at least I’m not losing money. My ‘regular’ income is from performing magic shows.

Todd provides superb customer service! ...and he “knows his stuff!!” 👏🏻✨

Thank you. It’s kind of ironic: when I tell people at the venues where I perform that I’m creating more competition for myself by running a magic shop (and giving magic lessons and workshops), they sometimes tell me ‘Oh! You’re making more competition for yourself!” I show a mock look of horror on my face, but I am, of course, happy to pass on the magical torch.

Thank you Jonathan. Although it’s hard to compete with some of the online magic shops (like Penguin, for example), I do have some loyal local customers. 😙

After spending quite a bit of time speaking with the owner of All American Magic in Portland it was definitely worth being in physical shop for that conversation. Really cool guy who really knows his stuff.

A major problem for B&M stores since the online internet and China Ebay stores started is many (not all of course) people read online about all these amazing magic tricks and then go to the local magic shop and pretend they are interested in magic getting the guy behind the counter to demonstrate several tricks they are interested in. After the clerk has spent anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more the guy will say he has to think about it and then goes home and orders it online so he can save a few bucks. I have heard this from almost every B&M I have visited. They can't be 100% percent sure they bought it online but they say the people that do this sometimes will come back a few weeks later wanting to see some more magic and most leave without buying anything or some little trinket that does not cost much. one store owner told me after all the demonstrations. That is the major cause of the demise of B&M magic shops, people using B&M stores as a showroom. Once all these stores are gone, it will be a sad day indeed.
