  • READ BEFORE YOU ORDER!
    READ BEFORE YOU ORDER!
    Saturday 12th of September 2020 10:53:00
    Unfortunately we are still having issues with customers paying using Paypal. The stock counters aren't deducting the sale when it's made which means the cards are still remaining on the website.
    If you want to pay with Paypal, please order using a credit or debit card. Your card WILL NOT be charged. Put 'Paypal please!' in the comments and we will send you a Paypal invoice. Your order will then be logged and processed without any issues.
    We are updating the website, but transferring 55,000 listings and integrating them and all the images to 3 shops isn't as easy as I thought. :)
    I realise this defeats the purpose of checking out quickly with Paypal, but if orders are made without using this, your item may have sold before we receive the Paypal order (which usually arrives next day)

    Hey! Where did all the cards go??
    Tuesday 08th of September 2020 22:40:10
    Hi Everyone. We've had an issue with the website, cards that have sold instore didnt get removed from the website, so we've had to re-list all the cards to make sure everything is correct. Sorry for any inconvenience! The good news is we are about to list so much more than we had before, but we needed to make sure it was 100% correct. Keep checking back!

    They are minimum PSA 9's and some may even be PSA 10's. We've priced them lower than completed eBay sales for a comparable card.
    Enjoy! We will be adding scans of the actual cards soon.

    Card Empire COVID-19 Update 
    Our No.1 priority is the safety of our staff and customers, so although the government and the venues we operate from feel it's safe to reopen we will be conducting our own customer safety and risk assessment on a day-to-day basis, and if we are not 100% happy then we may reduce our hours, days, or even close again temporarily if things start to show any signs of getting worse again. We take great pride that our stores are a fun place to visit and we want everyone to feel safe at all times and our staff to be protected and safe.
    We will update our Facebook pages and Website News posts with photo's and video's about instore safety as soon as we re-open.

  • Pokemon Used cards are getting image updates!
    Pokemon Used cards are getting image updates!
    Wednesday 03rd of June 2020 14:41:48
    We are going through the cards and updating the images from the stock images we've been using to the images of the actual card.
    When we started this website we only ever thought we'd be selling brand new cards straight from packs. How times and the hobby have changed. 
    We meant to do this from the start but with the lockdown and uploading thousands of cards to the website in the last couple of months some cards got missed.
    If you are looking at higher end cards generally the price reflects it's condition. We work hard to make sure our online selection reflects the 
    instore one, but you need to see the quality of the used cards before you buy them like you would instore so we are moving towards every card
    having a unique image. We are always happy to send photo's of the cards if you want to see anything just email or call.

  • Card Empire Leeds Store closes
    Card Empire Leeds Store closes
    Monday 01st of June 2020 17:26:07
    We've had to take the decision to close the Leeds Card Empire store. This wasn't easy, but the pressure of the high rent and rates together with the promised footfall in Leeds Kirkgate Market never really materialising it was always a struggle to maintain. Our stores in Manchester, Liverpool and Stockport will all be opening soon, and the website will feature more cards than ever before.
    We will be looking for an suitable venue in Leeds once we can properly gauge how COVID-19 has affected businesses in Leeds over the next few months. We will update our website and Facebook pages as soon as we have any news. Our website is still open 24/7.
