    This may be a super basic question, but I am considering buying a NIB game. If so, I'd like to support a distributor local to me. So... how would I go about finding one? I'm familiar with several PA distributors from hitting shows, but am curious if there is someone closer to me in DC.

    The other manufacturers will have links for their distributors as well.

    Wow, thank you! I knew about Joe and PinballSTAR but I didn't realize there were others so darn close as well

    If you buy from an out of state distributor you generally get free shipping and can save on sales tax as well. That can be hundreds of dollars. Something to think about......

    What's the difference between a commercial distributor and a dealer?

    Commercial may only sell to commercial ( ops ) dealer may only sell to home market.
