About Our Shop

What has been your best promotion or event? Selling Funko POP's two for $20.

What recent changes have you made in the store? Moved to a larger location three months ago so that we could expand our selection. We also started a loyalty rewards program where customers earn points towards future discounts.   

What steps have you taken to expand your customer base or to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with your store or comics in general? We do a lot of regional comic cons to let people know about our store.  

What are your plans for the near future? Just to keep on growing! 

How did you choose your store name? Since we sell action figures, it was important that those words be part of the name, and we chose “planet” since we wanted a word that meant "large," since we planned to grow.

What superpower would you most like to have? To fly, I suppose—I hate traffic! LOL
