Nintendo World NYC is Shutting Down for Re-Modeling

Now don't get all crazy, it's only for a few weeks-
The Nintendo® World store in New York will close its doors for a few weeks to undergo renovations. The two-story, 10,000-square-foot Rockefeller Plaza store will shut down at 8 p.m. on Oct. 13 and reopen at 9 a.m. on Nov. 1. Then on Nov. 7, the store will host a daylong grand re-opening celebration event for consumers.
 Why the re-model? Well...
  • Expansion of the Nintendo Showcase to twice its original size. The showcase will feature Nintendo products and artifacts in a visually impressive way.
  • New floors and new lighting.
  • New interactive stations for Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL.
  • New graphics throughout the store. 

There's going to be an update to this from Nintendo the closer we get to the seventh about the re-opening party- I'll keep you posted.
