It has been my great honor to have received a few awards recently!
First, our store has been nominated for an Eisner!
The Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award is given to an individual retailer who has done an outstanding job of supporting the comics art medium both in the community and within the industry at large.
I am extremely humbled by this nomination.
We have also won the 2011 Readers Choice Award sponsored by WickedLocal.com!
We received a Bronze award for best bookstore in the region, and an honorable mention for Bellingham. Since Barnes & Nobel is also in town, we need to constantly raise our performance.
We are currently working on our operations to improve point of sale, inventory control and special order management.
I am also taking a hard look at the physical layout of our store. We simply have too much in too small a space. My hope is to offer cool stuff but display it in such a way that anyone interested can see why it is cool.
If there are any ways we can improve our service, please let me know. You can always catch me in the store or drop me a line via the "Contact Ernie" link to the right. If we drop the ball in any way, I want to know and will do my best to make it right.
Also, if you know of any way that our store can be of service to the community at large, please feel free to pass it on.
Thank you for your continued support.
