What’s happening at The Video Hut?

The Video Hut, founded by Kim Atkinson and David Atkinson, has been a staple of this community for 20 years. Offering a full selection of DVD and VHS Rentals, among other items. However, that’s all about to change! Pretty soon you will not recognize The Video Hut that once was. People will say “do you remember when this was The Video Hut?”.  After the passing of David’s beloved wife Kim, David was on the verge of pulling the plug on having a business at 142 NW 3rd Street in Prineville. But with some enthusiasm shown by John Swanson, an employee, a new vision was born, Games Galore.

While this adventure is new for David and John, they are big-time collectors of games and gaming memorabilia and have been for quite some time. Eventually, their collections became too large to manage and they were having to buy, trade, and sell to continue their hobby. It also became a bit of a competition; who could find the best item on any given day, with John driving hours for the hunt. So it made sense that Games Galore would come to fruition – almost as if it were meant to be. Games Galore will be a reflection of their passion. 

So what exactly will Games Galore be providing and who is their target customer? Everyone! They’ll be catering to traditional, generational, and all ages; they will have games everyone can relate to. They already have an original Ms. Pacman arcade game you can walk right in and play. In fact, they currently have 4 arcade games that are set to free play (for now) – stop in and say hello. 

Current Services and items for sale:

Pokemon Cards

D and D  

Comics

Video Game Consoles and Games

Legos

Funko Pops

Cleaning and Maintenance of consoles

4 Arcade Games

Magic the Gathering packs  

Goals for the future: 

Robust options for arcade games 

Ability to host birthday parties and other events with the option to rent the entire store out for private parties 

Virtual Reality

Pinball machines 

Lounge type atmosphere

Magic and boardgame tables

Console rental by the hour

Pool, shuffleboard, foosball, and air hockey

Skateboard decks, wheels, bearings, and scooter parts

Food and Drinks

When asked what the goals of Games Galore are they replied that it’s really for the kids, they want it to be a comfortable place to be with a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. In the 80’s David spent some of his youth hanging out in a place similar to this vision and hopes that people love Games Galore so much that they don’t want to go home. 

You may be wondering how we as a community can support this blossoming business. Well, what they really need right now is to get out the current merchandise that does not fit into the future of Games Galore. This includes all of the DVD’s, Blu Rays and clothing. DVD’s are selling for $1, Blu Rays for $2, and Lularoe clothing from $5 to $10. The sooner we as a community help them to clear the space the sooner we will have this amazing place for our community to be, laugh, love, and enjoy. 

Another way you may be able to help is to donate old arcade games, signs, or memorabilia collecting dust. They would be happy to take any donations of items that fit into the Games Galore genre. David is also open to having people volunteer their time as well – so if there is a skill you would like to offer please stop by or call the store to let them know. 

David and John both love chatting with people and making connections so head down, show your support and do what you can to help them get the place cleared out.  They look forward to having this business flourish and providing a safe space for kids and our greater community to be. Keep a look out for a grand opening and ribbon-cutting event as the official launch of the business approaches in Spring of 2023.

Prineville Lions Club

My husband and I have lived in Prineville for 17 years. I retired from the Banking Industry after 18 years, most recently working for Oregonians Credit Union. I enjoy the trails and camping in the Crook County
area.

In addition to that, I have volunteered for the Crooked River roundup for 15 years, am the current President of the Prineville Lions, a member of the Prineville Elks and a Member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

I was an active member of the Chamber Ambassador Committee for 15 years and supported all the Prineville-Crook County Chamber events and projects.

The Prineville Chamber represents all of Crook County and its individuals, organizations and business and I feel with my volunteering and networking I am able to support the Vision and Mission of the
organization.

Financial Advisor, DFP Financial and Consulting

I grew up on a small cattle ranch in rural Southern Oregon which taught me the values of hard work, family, and a rural way of life.  I made the move to Central Oregon in 1993 for all of its beauty and activities.  Over the last 3 decades in Central Oregon, I have seen and experienced the incredible growth and expansion of this wonderful area.  In 2018 my wife and I decided to return to a rural lifestyle in Crook County.  With its diverse community, wide variety, and ever-expanding industry, the area has maintained a small-town rural feel and culture.


In 2019 after 25 years in Insurance and Investments, my wife and I decided to open DFP Financial & Consulting, a Private Wealth Management, Planning, and Consulting Firm.   We completely enjoy the people, community and all Crook County has to offer.  Being part of the Prineville Chamber is an important focus for us to give back to and help the business of the community.


In our spare time we enjoy our family and grandchildren; camping, riding horses and doing all that Central Oregon and Crook County offers, and fly fishing the Crooked River as often as possible.

Recreation Coordinator, Crook County Parks & Recreation

I grew up on the North Oregon Coast in a small tight knit community. About 18 years ago my husband and I started traveling to Central Oregon a few times a year to escape the rain. We always talked about wanting to move to the Prineville area. We enjoyed the small town feel as well as the ranching lifestyle the area offers. In the fall of 2020 we made the move with our  three teenage daughters and we are so glad we did!

In the spring of 2021 I started with Crook County Parks & Recreation. A few months after that I took the Recreation Coordinator position. I love  working with Parks & Rec. I have met so many wonderful people in Prineville which has helped with adjusting to a new environment.

I got involved with the Chamber to learn more about the community and to grow relationships.

In my spare time I love working with my family on our ranch as well as watching my girls play sports and show livestock.

Owner - Bayberry Lane

My family has called Prineville home for several generations. Being born and raised in this amazing community, I have always felt so incredibly blessed. I strive to be an active part of the community and volunteer regularly. I am deeply involved in 4H, several youth sports programs, and have served on many other local boards and committees. 

My mom and I own a small downtown boutique called Bayberry Lane. Our motto is local people supporting local people. We enjoy being able to give back and strive to love the people of Prineville well. 

Being on the Chamber Board has allowed me to not only serve and express my opinions as a business owner, but also as a local who wants to foster a community that is able to adapt to change while holding on to their core values.

Signet Realty

I am the Owner & Lead Coordinator at Firefly Events and I have been planning and coordinating events for over a decade.   I also recently took on a role as a local real estate broker here in Crook County. 

I grew up around southern Oregon. I made a road trip to Prineville with a cousin, on that trip I was introduced to a handsome young Prineville man that later became my husband. I love Prineville and although I wasn’t raised here over the last 16 years it truly has come to feel like my hometown.

I was working for a business that was a Chamber member and I was looking for opportunities to get involved in the community. After several years of attending Chamber functions I was encouraged to join the Ambassador team and then the Board. It has been a great learning experience and a lot of fun to be part of the Chamber both as a member and on the Board.

I love the weather in Prineville. After growing up in the valley with so many days of rain, I truly appreciated having (mostly) defined seasons. Summertime in Prineville is definitely my all-time favorite! We enjoy paddle boarding at Ochoco reservoir, swimming at the Prineville reservoir, floating the refreshing Crooked River, hiking the Barnes Butte or Chimney Rock trails and riding our ATV’s on the many OHV trails.

Chiropractor, Slater Chiropractic

I was born and raised in Prineville where I graduated from Crook County High School in 2009.  After that, I moved to Portland where I attended both Pacific University and the University of Western States for Chiropractic School. 

After ten years, I returned to Prineville and am now an Associate Chiropractor at Slater Chiropractic.

Since moving back, I have enjoyed how close this community is and realized how much I missed all that Crook County has to offer compared to the big city.  I started attending Chamber events to become more involved in our community and am excited to continue working with the Chamber as Vice President of the board.

I love spending my free time with friends and family, and enjoy getting out to explore all of Central Oregon.  I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, camping, kayaking and many other outdoor activities available in this beautiful area I get to call home.
