Dear TCGplayer Community,
I am proud of the work our fulfillment center employees do to help support local gaming stores. On April 14, at a Company all-hands, we announced our recent wage increases for the fulfillment center that are the result of months of working directly together. I believe our care for our co-workers during the COVID-19 crisis and our commitment to continued improvements in wages and benefits demonstrate in actions, not words, our values and focus.
