X Zone and KB Toys

X Zone and KB Toys

Back when I was a young lad, I had many jobs at the mall: KB Toys, Pacific Sunwear, Sears, and the list goes on. KB Toys was easily my least favorite of those jobs. I can't tell you how many times someone would come in, and ask for a recommendation for a toy, and when I'd suggest age appropriate toys, they would scoff and say that their precious snowflake was "too smart" for those toys. Anyway, I digress. After KB Toys packed up shop, around when the mall was really beginning to empty out, a brave man opened "X Zone", an independent video game store and game lounge. The owner died soon after opening the store, and the then manager, a man named Mike Kim, fought to keep the struggling place going. The mall, getting desperate to keep tenants, actually gave X Zone a lifetime lease with very reasonable terms. But unfortunately, the life of X Zone was shorter than the life of the mall.
