#SDCC18: PURGE CITY Is the Best New ‘Store’ at Comic-Con

Here at Dread Central we’ve covered A LOT of Comic-Con events in San Diego, but without question some of the coolest sights and most fun we’ve ever had could be found at USA Network’s Purge City Emporium! Even cooler? It’s absolutely free, and the Founding Fathers have decreed that anyone who wants to wait in line to get in shall receive 20 Purge dollars to shop with!

How cool is that? It’s all there, man: hats, candles, bumper stickers, t-shirts… you name it! You even get a free balloon to inhale the helium from, and… oh wait… Hey, no rules right? LIVE IT UP!

And if you’re lucky enough to be there at just the right time, you can witness a demo of the upcoming Purge card game.

We’ve got all the goods for you below… dozens of pics, a look at the Purge City Emporium flyer, a video store walk-through, and the game demo, which yours truly took part in! Never mind Party City…

PURGE CITY is where the party is truly at!

USA Network’s Purge City Emporium
Each day of the event, USA will open the doors of America’s first “Purge City” store, an immersive experience in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District, to the public. Transporting fans into the world of THE PURGE, “Purge City” is a tongue-in-cheek, one-stop shop for the perfect Purge Night, where friendly “Purge City” staff help visitors browse the aisles for items from emergency candles to masks to energy drinks—to help citizens stay safe and awake for the 12 hours of annual lawlessness.

Shoppers can also enjoy Purge photo opportunities and browse an area dedicated to the political rise of the New Founding Fathers of America, from the first Purge experiment on Staten Island to subsequent annual Purge Nights. “Purge City” will be open for business at 215 Tony Gwynn Drive — from Thursday, July 19th, through Saturday, July 21st, from 11 AM until 7 PM and Sunday, July 22nd, from 11 AM until 4 PM.
