When I am in his store, I am always amazed at Peter Parr's chess business. It's just booming. Just looking at the large boxes of sets, books and all manner of things chessic that he's shipping to all parts of the country, I think, "My God, this man's doing well for himself!"
Actually, a bullish trend in the chess business sector appears to be a worldwide phenomenon. I'm not sure if Checkmate International is listed anywhere but definitely worth a look at.
