IN THE NEW AGE®
August 6, 2020
We have been in this industry since 1997!
IN THE NEW AGE, LLC. Was formed by J. Bolin in 2019. However, prior to this, Jim had founded and operated several other companies in the same industry starting from 1997 just when the internet really took off and people were starting to shop online for products. And from this, James founded one of the first game room related companies on the internet, one of which sold many of the same products you see on IN THE NEW AGE today. The products including but not limited to, arcade games, jukeboxes, game tables, slot machines and more. However, because of the economic crash of 2008-2009, James exited out of that industry and entered the field of holistic health machines. However, due to an economic boom in the economy, James decided to reopen an all-new type of game room business that included other products as well. And when asked, James explained it like this.
Because of giant companies like Amazon, people are less inclined to visit and purchase from a website that is focused on flooding their website with so many unrelated products and industries that it ends up becoming a giant online flea market, thus, lacking the ability to provide customers with telephone support and the correct knowledge when needed.
Even back during the early 2,000’s and all through the current year, 2020, I am amazed at all the game room related companies have not caught up with the times yet, or should I say, they seem to be stuck in the stone age. But, let me be clear, I am not trying to seem insulting or disrespectful in anyway, however, when I look at some of these companies and the way the describe their products, and their online shopping carts, I myself would think twice about spending my hard-earned money with them. What I mean is, when you visit their website, they are still selling the very same arcade games, pinball machines, and jukeboxes that they were selling 15 and 20 years ago, when someone paid $2,900 for an arcade game, you received a game machine with only Pac-man, or Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, or if you were lucky 2 or 3 games in one cabinet. Also, many of them are using age-old shopping-cart platforms that are unsecure, unlike like ours!
Let us face it, we are living in a new age where people are smart enough to know what they want, and what they want is a product that gives them MORE SATISFACTION and MORE FOR THE MONEY, am I right? Additionally, they are still advertising many arcade games, jukeboxes, pinball machines that are no longer made. So, how could someone take a chance on a company like that. Also, I am surprised that so many of them are even able to accept credit cards without their credit card processors shutting down their merchant accounts. Again, I do not wish to seem at all insulting, but please BUYER BEWARE!
When I decided to get back into the game room business, I absolutely knew I needed to be different than the rest, likewise, while everyone else is still thinking inside the box, and for the few thinking outside the box, I knew I had to think BEYOND THE BOX, therefore, our company and website has manifested itself into what you see today, high-end game room related products that have definitely brought the game room, and the amusement industry into, or should I say, brought it “IN THE NEW AGE!”
