Support Arcades During COVID-19! Updated June 20, 2020!

COVID-19 has been wreaking havoc on small businesses all across the country. The financial impact on small businesses has been immense due to social distancing, stay at home orders, and forced closings of non essential businesses. While there has been some government support, social media movements, and large companies stepping in to help restaurants, bars, and their employees; focus on arcades specifically seems to be lacking. That's why we are compiling a list of arcades and how you can help support them. We will be adding to this list as we come across more arcades that offer either merchandise or other ways that we can support them. If you are an arcade operator and would like to be added to this list, send or tag us in a tweet.
