Welcome to GamerEmporiumUS, where nostalgia meets a heartwarming mission!
In 2016, Lonnie Gibson embarked on a remarkable journey to create something truly special. His passion for retro video games became the foundation for GamerEmporiumUS, a store that has since become an iconic haven for gamers and a beacon of hope for those seeking solace in the world of autism.
Life can be challenging, especially for individuals on the autism spectrum. Lonnie Gibson, an individual who himself faces the daily struggles of autism, understood this better than most. Searching for a way to cope and share his love for retro video games, Lonnie decided to create something that transcended mere business; he envisioned a sanctuary where gaming enthusiasts could relive cherished memories from their past.
And thus, GamerEmporiumUS was born.
