Gaming Store Decatur, IL

The Hidden Lair has just reached it’s 1 year anniversary with Andy Still at the helm. We have had a very successful year and seen growth in just about every area of the business. Part of our success can be attributed to the great deals and prizes we offer up to our customers. We firmly believe the store is a representation of the gamers that play there. As a kid I can remember spending a lot of my teen years at the local gaming store and this helped shape who I am today. I’m very proud to provide a place where kids can hang out in a great environment and learn while having fun doing so. Saturday has turned into an amazing day with games such as Pokemon, Yu-gi-oh, Dice Masters, Magic the Gathering and Free play using The Hidden Lair Demo Shelf. The demo shelf is filled with free games that can be played at anytime.

Although the store will be closed on Thanksgiving, Andy does have some really great deals planned for this weekend. The Black Friday Sale in Decatur, IL can be seen here.

Adam Dunn and Joshua W. Garrett have been blogging on The Hidden Lairs website for a month or two now. They are doing a great job!

Quality Home Locator–Adding New Properties Regularly!

Quality Home Locator is growing every month by adding new properties to our list of available rentals. The past few years have seen rapid growth in the rental market. Our mission has always been to exceed the norm in rental homes and service. We are committed to tenant satisfaction and to helping property owners receive worry free income via our property management services.

2551 E. Division in Decatur, IL is a 3 bedroom/1 bath ranch with hardwood floors and a beautiful kitchen. It also has a large fenced in backyard and deck for entertaining. This home will have a brand new refrigerator and stove with washer and dryer also included. This house is ready for occupancy!

Quality Home Locator plans to announce next week that it will return to the market and start selling houses again. About 10 years ago Quality Home Locator renovated and sold about 12 hours per year. The company gave prospective buyers the ability to customize his/her home. Once pre-approved and a letter of intent was signed that person was given the ability to make choices such as picking fixtures, paint colors, flooring type, and much more.

Millikin student housing school year 2015-2016

Quality Home Locator has been servicing the Millikin area for student housing now for over 10 years. Leaving dorm life can be a nerve racking experience for both students and parents. Students are ready for the experience of living totally for themselves, and parents want their adult children living in a safe, economical environment. Back in 2011 I wrote an article highlighting some the aspects of living at college with off campus housing. My company strives to meet everyone’s needs with our rental properties. We have a variety of 2, 3, 4, and 5 bedroom houses for students in quiet areas that are convenient to everything that Millikin has to offer. Rent varies according to the number of students renting a house, and always includes trash service and water. Students and parents have easy access to staff to voice any questions or concerns they may have. QHL works under the principle that well maintained student housing benefits everyone. We also offer incentives to students who refer others to our company. Just like in previous years, Millikin school year 2014-2015, our properties fill up before the end of winter break. Call us at 217-864-6485 for more information about what homes are available for the 2015-2016 school year. Students are looking now!!!

A new addition to this year is our office located within the same plaza of The Hidden Lair. If you don’t mail your check in and prefer to visit the office to make your rent payment you can enjoy the large free demo section offered at The Hidden Lair. The Hidden Lair also hosts large events for such games as Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and the famous FNM or Friday Night Magic.

The American Garage Minute- Garden Prep

The American Garage is a collaboration between Bradshaw Consulting, Inc. and 3D Houston. The show, filmed in Texas, is about the American know how and spirit of ingenuity. Season 1 of American Garage was based on repairing a David Bradley Tractor using a product of mine which can repair a cast iron tractor, called Castaloy. Season 2, which is currently under production, centers around the creation of a BBQ pit. I’m personally planning to do one of these in my back yard so I’m very excited the producers picked this topic out of the long list of requests by viewers. The American Garage Minute was started as a way to address questions from viewers that did not require a full season to address. So when some guys over at gardentractortalk.com wanted to see the tractor in action, this was the perfect vehicle to do so. I would like to note he has the good fortune of not being snowed in… but instead, is outside getting a garden ready.
