Initial Visit: June 21st, 2014
Description: Some of my best friends discovered Dizzy Dugout when they lived near Collinsville, IL. So naturally, we all went next time we hung out. All I can say is Holy Hell that is a packed wall of merchandise.
My friends weren’t kidding when they said this place was impressive. Behind the counter is a ginormous wall of trading cards. Some I hadn’t even heard of and some I haven’t seen in years. When you walk in, it is literally a wall of product on each side until you get to the second room, then it’s board games, comics and room to play on the tables set up.
If you are adventurous enough, there is another room that is further back. Upon first seeing it, you would think it was an unused room with random stock in it… and it kind of is, but stepping back there, you’ll see Final Fantasy VIII figures, anime VHS tapes, other anime figures from the 90’s and manga. It is a time warp when you cross into that room. My friends and I keep finding new things every time we go back there that we missed the previous times.
Overall, Dizzy is a fantastic store. If you are into that kind of stuff. The only real negatives is that the store is beyond cluttered and they had a roof leak, so it was musty the few times I have gone, but they have since fixed the leak. Awesome store with many treasures you can find, if you have time to look.
