Since April 2002, Gimme Anime has strove to provide the Best in Japanese Animation, Manga, and Toys to the Denver area, as well as conventions across the country. But as we all know; times change, consumer tastes change and new realities, and opportunities, arise. With that said, we are announcing that we will be ending Gimme Anime as an internet, convention and retail store in order to focus exclusively on our own Nani?Wear brand of geek-themed buttons, t-shirts, bumper sticker, keychains and more, that have become increasingly popular at conventions locally and around the country, as well as internet sales through our various web stores.
We wish to thank those of you who have stayed with us for the last 12 years. Your dedication as we attempted to provide the best service and selection that we could kept us going over the years. We also wish to thank those of you who consigned items to be sold through us. They have managed to help fill out our selection and provide our store with some distinct merchandise we could not have gotten anywhere else, allowing us to stand out from the herds of other anime vendors.
Gimme Anime will continue to exist as a legal entity for some time to come, as we inventory our remaining stock and consignments, and settle accounts as time will allow. Meantime, our Gimme Anime web page will point people in the direction of anime goods in Denver and Colorado. And should a new local bootleg-free store open up in the area, we will give them our support. Until then, we recommend you make the trip down to Colorado Springs and visit Rainy Day Anime
We realize we are late about posting this, but we have decided to no longer accept Saturday appointments. Due to the increasing frequency that we are at conventions across the country, coupled with the fact that we need those Saturdays home in order to prep for the next conventions, we have decided it is better for all involved to just cancel the program. We do not like offering a service and then repeatedly have to say ‘no’ because our schedule won’t allow it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Happy Holidays to you all! Due to Christmas and New Years and our convention schedule, we will be closed from Christmas Eve (December 24th) through January 15th. We apologize for being closed for that long of time, but this year’s schedule is very hectic. Enjoy your Christmas and New Year’s and we’ll see you in 2014!
Since the holidays are upon us, we just wanted to let people know we will, of course, be closed on Thanksgiving Thursday. But we will also be closed on Black Friday as well in order to do some much needed upgrades. Have a safe and fun holiday with your family and friends, and we will see you on Tuesday.
Sorry for the delay in updates. We even missed posting about going to Anime Banzai in Utah. But for all of you to know, we are attending Rocky Mountain Con here in Denver this weekend. This first year convention will have some proceeds going to the Aurora Rises fund that supports the victims of the Aurora movie shooting. Stop by and have some fun for a good cause.
Another convention closing, this time for the Rocky Mountain Collector Con in Pueblo, CO. Since it is a shorter drive than normal, we’ll only be closed on Friday, October 4th. We will reopen again on Tuesday as normal.
As you can see on the con widget, we have another con this weekend, our own local Nan Desu Kan. We’ve been busting our humps to get ready for this and we hope you locals will be happy with the results. Of course, we will be closed on Thursday and reopen on Tuesday. Hope you make it through all the rain and remember the contest posted on Facebook and the NDK forums!
A little late, sorry about this, but we are closed to attend AnimeFest in Dallas. We will return on Wednesday, Sept 4th.
It’s back on the road again! This time to Minnesota for CONvergence, a 4-day convention of fun. We’ll be back open again on Tuesday, July 9th.
Have a Happy Independence Day!
