Buying online can be nice. You can get something that might not be available locally and have it sent right to you. However, shipping can sometimes make that cost a bit prohibitive. Well, not the case when you buy Atelier now from AEG. They're offering free shipping when you pick up the game directly from them.
From the announcement:
You can now get Atelier with FREE shipping! This game of worker placement has you sending out your art students to collect colors of paint that you can use in your studio to create amazing works of art. Featuring works of great masters, Atelier is an excellent addition to any game library.
