CAPE GIRARDEAU, Missouri- KFVS says that Cape Girardeau could soon become a hub for Pokémon enthusiasts everywhere.

On the heels of the release of the Pokémon Go app, a group of entrepreneurs is looking to open a one-of-kind shop for fans of the game.

Timothy Harris and his friends are calling it Rivertown Lab Pokéshop.

“When Pokémon Go came out it really gave the actual push,” Harris said.

The store will feature everything Pokémon.

“We’re looking at plushes, backpacks, t-shirts,” Harris said.

All of the items will come direct from the game’s original creators, Nintendo.

“They have granted us access to use their wholesalers,” he said.

That’s access that’s not readily available according to the store’s co-creator Aaron Hamlin. He says it will offer fans around the Cape Girardeau area a unique opportunity.
