We’ve been back to our normal hours of operation (AND TAKING TRADES) for a while, but I forgot to post the update here on our website. Oops!

For those who don’t know, our normal hours of operation are:

Monday through Thursday: 10-8

Friday & Saturday: 10-9

Sunday: noon-6

If you or anyone else in your home feels sick, please stay home and get well!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and be good to each other!

A note from the owner


To all our customers who have pre-ordered games that release Friday (Animal Crossing, Doom Eternal, etc.):

With the current situation in Michigan (and the world) be assured that I will personally make sure that you are able to pick up your game on Friday.

Right now, with the State of Michigan discouraging gatherings of 50 or more, we are safe to remain open and fully operational (while regularly disinfecting the high traffic areas of the store).

If that changes and the government mandates that we close before then, I will personally be at the store on Friday allowing people into the store a few at a time (how many depends on the government mandate at the time) to pick up their games.

My goal is simple: to make sure everyone is safe & healthy, all while maintaining the high level of customer service that you all have come to expect from the Beltline Play N Trade family.

Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times.

For the foreseeable future, (at least through April 1, 2020) our store hours have been updated to the following:

Monday through Saturday: 10-6

Sunday: noon-6

If you or anyone else in your home feels sick, please stay home and get well!

Stay safe, stay healthy, be good to each other, and everyone wash your hands.

Free Video Game Day 2019

2019 free video game day6414136296485612999..jpg


CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY / FREE VIDEO GAME DAY will be at 10am on May the 11th at Beltline Play N Trade!

We will be handing out bags stuffed with a free video game for the system of your choice, along with coupons, toys and nostalgic fun! Each bag has a retail value of around $20 worth of freebies and coupons! We will be handing out roughly 500 bags, however we are limiting the amount of people inside the store to 30 at a time in order to meet the fire code and ensure that everyone has a great experience. Doors will open at 10:00 am. Please read below if you have any questions not listed below please let us know! PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE!

Q. Is this a real thing?

Q. Do I get to pick out any game I want in your store?
A. No. All games are in pre-made grab bags, along with other fun items and valuable coupons. You certainly may however choose the system that you want the game for (while supplies last).

Q. Are you handing out any PS4, Xbox One, and Switch Games?
A. Yes, but quantities are limited to 25 for Switch, and 75 each for Xbox One & PS4. Please limit these systems to one per household. Also, please have a second pick ready in case you are unable to get a game for these systems.

Q. What systems are available to choose from?
A. PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, NES, SNES, N64, Wii, Wii u, Switch, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, PSP, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.

Q. Are these games age appropriate for children?
A. Since our customers are all ages and the games are in the blind bags we have no idea which game a person will receive. You may very well receive a T or M game in your bag. Please use your own judgement, however we will not be choosing any games that are extremely distasteful, vulgar or excessively graphic in any way. We will also not be including any yearly sports games.

Q. What if it rains?
A. Bring an umbrella! Unless we get extremely terrible weather we will be holding Free Video Game Day rain or shine! We do have an overhang but the line will probably go past the end of it.

Q. I don’t want the free video game I got / I already have this game. Can I trade it in for another game of the same value?
A. Sorry, no. We will not be taking any trades on these games. These games are gifts to our customers. If you do not want the game you receive we recommend giving it to a friend, a child, anyone who will play it or a thrift store or shelter.

Q. How long are the sales?
A. All day Saturday from 10:00 am – 9:00 pm – or while supplies last, whichever comes first!

Q. Can we make purchases during the event?
A. Absolutely. Keep in mind that we are only allowing 30 people in the store at once, and there will be a waiting line outside. Please take your time to make your selections then bring them straight to our register area where we will have our great employees making sure all sales are done fast and correct.

Q. I was number 501 in line and waited an hour to get in, can I get anything?
A. Sorry, we can only make 500 bags due to the amount of stock available, plus this is obviously a very expensive event for us to put together. Please wait in line at your own risk.

Q. Can I trade in my old games to use as credit towards the sales?
A. Yes you may, at NOON. Trades take more time and we wish to keep our line moving very swiftly as to not keep anyone outside waiting. Please hold all trades until the give-a-way is over.
