They encourage safe play, development character and more. They provide camps on days the kids are out of school for affordable prices. Now what sets them all apart, even when a child has not been into the store in sometime, every staff member will stop and say hi, ask how they have been and show ultimate caring and support towards the child even when money is not being spent! They truly all care about the children of this community and that is the communities future!!! Thank you guys for all that you do!!!

Ryan and Olivia are big Extra Life fundraisers and it seems the entire store has a "Community First" attitude Not only putting forth money, the entire staff gives time and effort to our community events. Seafest wouldn't be the same without Rob and 50 kids in the parade, Children's Fest, Halloween Fest, and any other fest I can think of too. Good Times is community. Making Prince Rupert special for I don't even know how many years! I'd vote Rob for Prime Minister if I could.

78 days ago In my opinion Good Time games has become more than just a business in the community, it has become a service provider for children in the community. Every time there is a special event, they are their, with either donations of items, or their time. Seafest, the Jingle Cruise, events for special needs children, Cancer fundraisers, the list goes on and on. Their swordplay, fairy camps, D&D games, hex bugs etc offer healthy safe environment that foster children's imaginations. There is nobody else like them in our community. We are very fortunate to have them and I would love to see them considered for the Community Involvement Award.
