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 have been featured on two separate television local news broadcasts.

What are your plans for the near future? I hope to reach out to local schools and figure out ways to promote our store there.https://news-manager.diamondcomics.com/article-edit.asp?ai=191675

How did you choose your store name? I wanted to match the Long Beach Barber Shop, which is located right next door, and has been in the family for many years.
