About Our Shop

Favorite Recent Comic Book? Superman

How was your Halloween ComicFest event?  We promote the event heavily on social media and it gets better every year.

What has been your best promotion or event?  Our huge Pop Vinyl selection and the word of mouth that comes along with it after consumers see it.  It brings people to the store from all over.  Instagram has also been a big help for us.

What recent changes have you made in the store?  We are always trying to add new products and that means we have to add new fixtures to display them.

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 use social media extensively and our exclusive comics and toys also help.

What are your plans for the near future?  Really it will just be more of the same.  We will continue to find cool items that are not seen in every store.

How did you choose your store name?  We wanted something that started with a “C” as that tends to go well with Comics and we thought it sounded good.

What superpower would you most like to have?  Let’s go with flight.

 

Moveable fixtures, such as this graphic novel display, are very functional
