My go-to store of choice these days, brightly lit, friendly staff that you’ll likely quickly get on first-name basis with, and very approachable. My fiancee and I have a joint pull-drawer there, and it’s always accurately filled. The owner, Ernie, is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met and is incredibly passionate about the business. Always willing to offer pointers for new folks for where to start, or great new books that are coming out. My friends and I run a podcast, and wanted to do a segment on comic books, and he immediately rattled off more titles than I could remember to read for our cast.
Admittedly, I usually go on weekends because I’m busy Wednesday nights, but I’ve never heard any of the staff say an unkind word to or about anyone, and it’s not a big store, so you’d hear it, and likewise for profanity. I’ve seen parents with their kids in there all the time, and both the patrons and staff are very good about not swearing while sensitive ears are about.
Despite the small size, nothing feels cramped. The store is well-organized with wide areas for people or wheelchairs to get through. Chair access may be a problem in winter due to snowfall blocking the sloped area to get onto the sidewalk, unfortunately, but 90% of the time it shouldn’t be a problem, just after a heavy snowfall. It’s also really easy to get to, with quick access to the center of town or the main highway.
For those interested, the store also has a very small area with tables and chairs set up for card or board game play, and has a small library of demo board games for folks to try out. But Comics is the definitely the name of the game here, and I can’t think of a store I’d rather go to for that purpose.
