In 1998, A & C was nothing more than your average corner convenience store, a mere wander south of Bloor at 706 Spadina Avenue, and owned by brothers Chang and Gar Wan Toy. In 2003, the video game enthusiasts started selling used games. The small specialty overran the store faster than you can say, “Your sword is enough.” The final vestiges of the once-general store were energy drinks and cigarettes. When the last refrigerator died, A & C was reborn as a unique hub for an uncanny culture. Now, the space offers more than just a place to play TCG's, it also has a wide selection of games, systems, and accessories, both new and old—it has history and memories, paraphernalia from corny promotional video tapes to collectable toys that even Google only knows on a last-name basis.
