In some ways it seems just like yesterday, back on Feb 14, 2005, I took over the New Dimension Comics from the previous owner and Richard’s Comics & Collectables was born!!
It was just a lucky coincidence as I had wanted to start at the beginning of a week and when everything was settled it just happened to be Monday Feb 14th! It must have been fate, since I do love comics!!
To celebrate this landmark Anniversary we will have a bit of a celebration at the store on Saturday Feb 15th. The store will close as normal at 7pm that day and will reopen right around 7:30pm.
We will have some snacks and some sounds! The first 100 or so people to enter will be given a goodie bag with some surprises inside. Each bag will be a bit different so who knows what you might get.
During the next 2 hours or so we will be raffling off some great prizes donated by various publishers, such as Marvel, DC, IDW, Diamond and a few more. Everyone that arrives at the the event will get one raffle ticket. You must be present to win, so be sure to stick around.
**there may be some opportunities to get additional raffle tickets to increase your chances so keep an eye on the store’s facebook page,
Lastly, but most importantly, I do want to say “THANK YOU” for everyone that has helped me achieve this anniversary, from all of the customers that have dropped by, the guests who have sat and signed/sketched, and of course to all of the folks that have helped me with every event!! There is no way I could have achieved this without all of you.
