Day 12

Today we had our D&D game and went to our friend’s comic book shop to play. They just opened their shop May 1st and they’re having their official grand opening June 13th. I wish I’d been taking pictures back when we saw the store on the 1st, because the difference between now and then is astounding! They’ve done consistently decent business, but haven’t done any advertising yet. They’re waiting for their official opening for that. So I’m pretty impressed at how well they’re doing and hopefully they’ll do awesomely as the year goes on.

First though… we got there earlier than we thought we were going to, so hubby and I grabbed lunch at a place we haven’t been to in 2 years. (We used to live in the same town they opened their store in.)

Here’s the strip mall they’re in. Just down the way there’s a computer gaming store and next to that is a Hollywood Video, so they should have plenty of younger traffic coming by.

Here’s the front door to their shop. They had shoe polish on the windows saying what their shop was the last time I was here!

And the inside of the shop. There was NOTHING on the walls last time and, well, they “opened” on a Friday. And comics ship on Wednesdays. So, yeah, they missed that week’s comics, so all they had were the free May 1 comics and their back issues. I gave them my half dozen boxes, another friend of theirs gave them a number of boxes, one of the owners had a bunch of boxes, and then they bought about 30,000 back issues. No, I didn’t have an extra zero in there. They bought that many back issues of various titles, to fill out their back issue drawers. 🙂
