Command Zone Games held its grand opening Thursday afternoon. It's the newest business to come downtown. Owners said if you love games like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, or Magic, their shop is for you.

Michael Starr said they offer those games, but they bring in a social aspect to the game. They made sure their store had enough space for gamers to play.

"I've been in this game for a long time, so the players are looking for a place they can go to every day, play casually, play in tournaments, have the full support, and they weren't getting it," said Starr.

But they also said the location on Poplar street was factor for them.

"Downtown Macon is trying really hard to pick back up, and if it's going to do it, it's gonna do it now," said Starr. "There is a lot of revitalization going on and there is just a lot of vitality downtown we're really trying to pick up."

The business will be open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 11 pm. On weekends, those hours are longer from 10 am to midnight.

It's located at 533 Poplar Street in Downtown.
