On the Move!

Boy are we excited! Due to the expanding growth of our business, thanks to each and every one of you, a dream has come true! For the last two years, we've thought about it, talked about it, now it's finally becoming a reality. The big news: Hocus Pocus is moving to our new location! While still located in Fresno, California the new building is absolutely massive! We will now have close to 10,000 square feet of warehouse and office space, which will enable us to process and ship your orders even faster and give us maximum efficiency and space to help us continue to grow. We will be at our current location until May 1st as we will be doing some inner construction and set-up at our new location until then. So until that time, take a look at the new home of Hocus Pocus:

During the coming weeks, we'll be bringing you updated photos, interior shots, etc. so stay tuned! You can click the above image for a larger, more detailed view.

In other news, we're excited to announce that Andre Kole will be in Fresno performing this Wednesday, February 22. The last time Andre was here was over 6 years ago, when he performed at California State University @ Fresno. The entire Hocus Pocus gang will be going to check out his new show, and we'll let you know all about it.

My friend, Ray Lum, just arrived from the Bay Area to deliver, in person, Blackstone Jr's stage-sized Mental Epic. This was built for Blackstone Jr's show by John Gaughn and well used in the Blackstone show for many, many years. Ray completely refurbished it and it works like a charm and is smooth as silk! As many of you know, I'm a HUGE Blackstone Jr. fan, and this will have a special home in my private magic collection.

We got a slug of new products Friday and today, and Mike has his hands full putting them on the site. Of particular note is the new Lit Lightbulbs from Mouth and the new Royal Road to Card Magic DVD Set by R. Paul Wilson. Both of these are exceptional products of extraordinary value, and I highly recommend you take a look at both on our site.

Also, famous mentalist Andrew Gerard has selected Hocus Pocus to distribute his line of mentalism products. The first offering is called Real Time. This was Andrew's pet effect for many years, and he has finally decided to release it to the magic community. This is a strong routine with an entertaining premise that will fool the heck out of both laymen and magicians alike! Watch the web site over the next couple of weeks to see more of Andrew's exciting products!

On the home front, by the end of this week, keeping our fingers crossed, our remodelling will be completed. After 4 1/2 months, we'll no longer have to live out of boxes, Yea!

Until next time,
