Deals have been made and money has exchanged hands and work is beginning. A storefront has been leased and we now begin the labor of transforming it into a haven for those that are aimin’ to misbehave. Within reason, that is.
Yes, we are on our way to opening up a new store. This is a very stressful time for me, because all those years of me saying to myself that I know how to run one have come to this moment of me putting up or shutting up. May the Good Lord have mercy on my soul!
First things first, no, I didn’t get Comic Book Craze’s old spot. There was miscommunication on both sides and I just wasn’t getting a warm, fuzzy feeling from the landlord, so I backed out. I hated to do that to Matt & Chris, but this is business and I have a kid to think about. So, if the Spidey sense is tingling, then it’s time to bug out.
We didn’t go far, though. We are across the street on the other side of the Gold’s Gym. We have a daycare right next to us, full of future comic book readers and then down at the other end is a Italian restaurant with great pizza, Sali's Pizza, and the Nickelrama Arcade. The actual address is 1238 N. Belt Line Road, Suite 365. It is a much smaller location, so we won’t be able to have marathon gaming sessions, but we continue to improve the situation. Don’t worry about it too much.
In the meantime, we still have some work to do, so stay tuned to this blog and the Facebook page, and we’ll keep you posted. Be sure and pass this on to any who might be looking for a new store to try out and thank you for the support!
