Bizarro world has knowledgeable staff. I like this place a lot. The owner may be a little different, the guy collects and sells comics, that is not a profession that pre selects for high sociability. I think it adds to the flavor of the place.

I’ve recently started going to Bizarro for about a year as I have a 5 year old son that has become enamored with comics and action figures. We’ve purchased several comics and I really appreciated the selection of G-rated stuff appropriate for his age group. A neighbor recommend the DVD rentals at Bizarro and we decided to give it a try. We were very excited to have a local place to walk to and get DVDs and I was again surprised and pleased at the selection they had for new releases and kids movies.<br> + <br> + Our first DVD rental was a nightmare!<br> + <br> + The disk got stuck/skipped about half way through the movie and we had to fast forward to get it to keep working (after it crashing 2 times and having to start over from the main menu). However, this really didn’t bother us too much because we’ve had this happen from rented DVDs from other places before (including Netflix).<br> + <br> + We returned the DVD on time and interestingly, this one occasion, we actually opened the DVD case about a half block from the store to check and make sure we put it back in the case. So, as luck would have it I had a very vivid, clear memory of the DVD on the day it was returned being in good condition without damage. We dropped it off to be on went on our merry way.<br> + <br> + Two days later I get an email from the shop owner Dan saying we were being charged $30 replacement fee because we returned the DVD with “serious damage”. I went down to the shop immediately that same day and asked to see the DVD. A friendly shop employee told me that it had 3 major scratches in the DVD. He said they cleaned it in their cleaning equipment and they mostly came out but that it still won’t play and is unusable. When he showed me the disc it had 2 tiny, pinhead size dots on the surface. I found it hard to believe that the disc didn’t work. He told me that he hadn’t been the one to test it but that the owner Dan did so he “assumed it didn’t work because Dan wouldn’t charge you a fee if it was working”. He told me to call back the next day when Dan was working to talk with him about it.<br> + <br> + When I called Dan and inquired about the situation he was SO RUDE and down right mean. I expressed my concerns and told him that I was more than willing to pay for damage we caused but in this case I had inspected the disc moments before turning it in and there was no damage. He told me “I don’t understand why I need to take the time to explain this to you because you signed the rental agreement and you seem to understand that you have to pay for damage you caused.” I repeated that I was being honest about my inspecting the disc before returning it and how was I to know it wasn’t damaged in the shop itself after it was returned. (The shop is a filthy mess with stacks upon stacks of things on top of each other and the merchandise is not well cared for). He made some enraged rude remarks where he continued to sling personal insults.<br> + <br> + I told him how disappointing it was to have this treatment from a local business we try to support in Downtown and that I was going to post my reviews on Daviswiki and Yelp. To this he said “Go ahead, People write lies about us all the time on DavisWiki and they aren’t true.”<br> + <br> + He then jumped in claiming that this was a 2 disc set and if I wanted to come back down to the store he would show me the damage on the 2nd disc that they didn’t clean off. I told him I don’t understand why the employee didn’t show me that damage yesterday when I did come into the shop asking to see the damage and became even more suspicious of being unjustly accused by Dan and the staff.<br> + <br> + I told Dan I would not pay the fee and would contest his charges with my credit card company. To this he replied, “You have such a pathetic existence that you have to run all over town spreading lies instead of taking responsibility for the damage you caused”. This was my 1st and last DVD rental at Bizarro World. We will never patronize this business again. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY AT A PLACE THAT WILL ONLY LIE TO YOU, STEAL FROM YOU, AND INSULT YOU!<br> + <br> + I am somewhat relieved for my son that Droms comics is also in town and there is always Amazon.com (sorry Downtown Merchants).<br> + --["Users/HeatherMartin"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2013-06-12 05:58:30WesHardakermoved comment from a wrong page (bizarro davis) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 331: </td> <td> Line 331: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-06-12 03:13:40'' [[nbsp]] I just bought Turok for gamecube at Bizarro world for 7.50$ such a good deal.

DO NOT SHOP HERE. Dan Urazandi is absolutely the worst business owners I have ever encountered. I called to ask about why I had a $14 charge from Bizarro World when I havent shopped there since 2012. He said " its a late fee charge", I asked "Can you explain that, Im confused at how I could have accrues this, I rented movies and returned them without incident last year." He then proceeds to berate me and ask "What don't you understand about the English language and the word late fee, which you agreed to pay when you signed our contract which allowed you to rent here." When I politely challenged the policy of charging people a year later, he very agressively responded "WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FEES ARE JUST GOING TO VAPORIZE!" When I asked him if he is normally this rude to paying customers or if he is just having a bad day, he said "I have work to do and you're wasting my time." WOW! This guy seriously has absolutely no concept of customer service. As if people are not going to question a charge on their account when they havent been to the business since last year! Charge people for their late fees right then and there when they accrue them, or call them and let them know they owe. I don't mind paying (even though the late fees are more than I paid to rent the movie) but they should let people know before charging their card unannounced. The owner is incredibly rude and really should not be working with people. --["Users/LorenJ"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2013-03-07 21:33:58AlexYeghiazarianComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 327: </td> <td> Line 327: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-03-07 20:33:58'' [[nbsp]] I really have no idea what people are going on about the staff.

If my previous experiences at a comic book store would be so great, my experience at Bizarro's would surely be just as pheunomenal. Right?<br> + <br> + How I couldn't be more wrong.<br> + <br> + I first patronized Bizarro at their previous location back in 2007. The location was much smaller and cramped. The comic selection was pitiful. The shelves and items were poorly organized.There was very little ventilation in the store itself. Everything seemed filthy. The shelves looked as though they have not been dusted for quite some time. All of the items look like they were inferior second hand items. I thought maybe the staff would make up for the sub-standard ambiance and wares.<br> + <br> + Unfortunately, I was again contradicted. The staff glared at me while I was scoping their merchandise;As if I had any interest in swiping their third-rate items. The owner of the store was a rude, pompous prat with a largely undeserved ego. When I asked for his help, he gave me brusque comments as if I interrupted him from doing anything highly significant. His knowledge of comics or "Geek Culture" was not impressive at all. When I tried to strike a conversation with him, he asked me "Why the hell are you even talking to me?" He's highly reminiscent of the "Comic Book Guy" from "The Simpsons." Except that the owner is less amusing. And less intelligent for that matter.<br> + <br> + I was so disgusted by the business of the store, I never went back to the location after my fourth visit. I went back to Bizarro's a few years later when they moved from their old location to the building that used to be owned by a used bookstore(Which was a nice, well-run store by the way. Pity that they went out of business. If only it was Bizarro's that suffered that fate.) I attended the store with a friend of mine during their grand opening. I was hoping that the store improved with location.<br> + <br> + I was right. Albeit it was marginal. There was a few more selections. It was definitely larger and better ventilated. And they had arcade games. Alas, it was still filthy and poorly disorganized. While the selection was larger, it was still abysmal in comparison to the comic book stores I used to frequent growing up. The items were still of inferior quality. And the staff were still as mean-spirited and nasty as before. My friend asked me if he had to pay with cash to play the games. One of the employees got in our private conversation and said "duhhhhhh!!!" as if he even asked him in the first place(It may be a silly question but it still didn't warrant a rude response. Especially from someone who wasn't even involved in our business to begin with. Besides, some places do use tokens instead of actual coins). That was the last straw for me. I never went back since.<br> + <br> + All and all, Bizarro's is a laughable failure of a comic book store. --["Users/HumbertoSilva"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2012-03-15 12:02:19JQuestComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 255: </td> <td> Line 255: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-03-15 12:02:19'' [[nbsp]] This place is legit. --["Users/JQuest"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2012-02-17 02:20:41JordanRiversComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 253: </td> <td> Line 253: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-02-17 01:20:41'' [[nbsp]] This was one of the worst shopping experiences of my life. I don't know what was wrong with the staff, but I was waiting to buy some card game booster packs for almost half an hour. And finally the jerk behind the counter and gives me my packs, overpricing them even by his inflated prices. When I pointed this out to him he muttered something under his breath, took the packs back and moved on to another customer, leaving me there. I waited another five minutes before another staff member came up and sold me the packs. Other than the terrible customer service, the place is dirty, unorganized and smells like an old shoe.

The guy behind the counter did ask me what I was looking for though, which I think helps shyer customers find what they need.

I wish there was a bigger selection, but understand that isn't the main attraction of the store... The owner seems a little gruff and unfriendly but he's never been outright rude to me. I think he gets annoyed when people come in and don't buy anything. Sometimes I sell my used fantasy/sci-fi novels and he gives me a pretty decent price in store credit but he only works certain hours so it's hard to get a hold of him sometime and nobody else can sell.

I went in today, to see if I was wrong about the pricing. Here are a couple cards that stuck out in my mind;<br> + Jace the Mind Sculptor - $100, Channel Fireball - $79.99, SCG - $79.99<br> + Goblin Guide - $10, Channel Fireball - $4.99, SCG - $5.49<br> + Progenitus - $15, Channel Fireball - $11.99, SCG - $10.99<br> + <br> + There were more in the case with similar price differences. If I am buying cards, it just doesn't make sense to pay a $4-$20 markup on each card. If I see a lot of prices that are off, I prefer to play it safe and buy nothing rather than find out when I get home that I got screwed over. Maybe if I played in the shop, I could make an exception every now and then. With no DCI sanctioned tournaments, that is not an option for me.<br> + <br> + @MyRealName - I will try and not turn this into some sort of fight. "Sales Violation" implies you were performing an activity to do with sales, which is a "business practice". The "violation" part definitely falls under the umbrella of "inappropriate" behavior. In my opinion, not a very large jump to make. --["Users/SeanPatch"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2011-05-21 22:38:36JennyAnnMcAllisterComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 207: </td> <td> Line 207: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-05-21 22:38:36'' [[nbsp]] My boyfriend just about wet himself with joy the first time I took him by this store.

He is the only reason I'll even consider heading out to this store.<br> + <br> + Dan, on the other hand, has been consistently cold and distant to me whenever I've talked to him.

There have been so many spurious comments that the purpose of the wiki has been clouded altogether as a source of genuine information. It's impossible for anyone's comments to have any impact, because anything anyone says will simply add to the he said/she said conflict.

I can say that Bizarro World has effectively turned away my business. Regardless of how successful the competing store is, Bizarro will never be where I frequent. As a magic the Gathering player, I was turned off by the fact that they lost their DCI sanctioning due to inappropriate business practices. The prices in their case are far from fair. Sometimes they are 2x-3x the average price. They sponsor players to play in their unsanctioned tournaments who turn prized back to the store. They do not even have a level 1 judge to help with rules. There bulk selection is equally overpriced and unorganized. Do not be surprised if you see very few Magic players in the shop. They have done everything they could to persuade people not to come. --["Users/SeanPatch"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Bizarro Worldhttp://daviswiki.org/Bizarro_World2011-03-31 11:34:54TomGarbersonArcade history <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Bizarro World<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 23: </td> <td> Line 23: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- The new location also features a coin-op arcade, with a number of classic video games for your retro-gaming pleasure.
