I don't think they are shutting down per se, just merging with their parent gamestop?

 

From the FAQ on their site... 

 

IS THINKGEEK SHUTTING DOWN?
Nope. On July 2nd, 2019, ThinkGeek.com will be moving in with our parent company GameStop. After this move, you will be able to shop a curated selection of unique items historically found on ThinkGeek.com via a ThinkGeek section at GameStop

 

 

 

 

 

Still worth knowing everything is 50% off though!

Gamestop might not be far behind themselves by all accounts. I'll definitely check out Thinkgeek before they're gone

The irony is that thinkgeek is listed as one of the brands that the new zing store at glenfield mall will be selling when it opens this weekend. Wonder how long that place will still be a thing?

Just to confirm - one needs to use a re-shipping service (eg YouShop) to get any deliveries from ThinkGeek to an NZ address? 

 

My kids are keen on some things, but just need to factor in this extra cost as to whether they're worth it.

 

Thanks.
