In today’s entry of Blast From the Past: A Guide to Local Retro Video Game Stores, we visit the metropolitan area of Portland, OR.

Similar to another northwestern city roughly three hours away (Seattle), the greater Portland area bolsters an impressive quantity of retro game stores, with 14 in total. Local chains such as GameStar (Gresham/Hillsboro/Oregon City/Portland/Tigard) and CD Gamexchange (Gresham/Portland) operate several stores throughout the various suburbs and Portland proper. Others are boutique stores, such as: Game Trader (Beaverton) and Game Haven (Sherwood).

Are we missing a retro game store from Portland not on this list? Do you have a story you’d like to share about one of these stores? Feel free to let us know in the comments section!
