Best of Milwaukee 2007
We were once again a finalist in the Shepherd Express' Best Of Milwaukee this year for comic book store. But once again, the winning spot was not ours to have. Congratulations to Lost World of Wonders! They run a huge store and manage to do it pretty well.
We were a runner up - once again we're #2. Of course, we are not in Milwaukee but are in a suburb of Milwaukee, so that's part of it. And we are not the biggest store in the area or the oldest store in the area. At least we come in close to first! In this year's vote last year's winner didn't even make the top three - which was pretty wild. The other comic store in the top 3 (Turning Page) has been in danger of closing for the last couple of years because the owner has been in the hospital on-and-off. But he's lucky enough to have loyal customers who want to help him keep the store open, so they'll work there for free to make sure that someone is there to bring in and sell the comics. (I wonder if Craig and I had problems if our customers would volunteer to help out?)
Thanks to everyone who voted for us!! You keep shopping here and we'll keep working to be the best!
