Cobb County is getting a ThinkGeek store of its own. George Bowman of Buford, an employee at the Mall of Georgia location (the state’s first), was excited for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Wanna-be Jedi, Whovians and those who love X-Men minutia can all rejoice because Cobb County is getting its first ThinkGeek store.

“Ghu'vam 'oHbe' qID.”

That means “this is not a joke” in Klingon. And it isn’t one.

ThinkGeek will open a 2,200-square-foot store in Town Center at Cobb in early April, said Jennifer Walker, a spokeswoman for the Kennesaw mall.

Originally an online emporium for all things that got middle schoolers beaten up, the physical stores sell a smattering of its offerings from the web: collectibles, trading cards, games and more.

The business will be next to Bath & Body Works on the mall’s upper level in the Sears wing, Walker said.

This will be Georgia's third physical ThinkGeek location. The state’s first opened at the Mall of Georgia in September and the second is in Savannah.
