Why Should I Pledge To This Kickstarter?
Small Businesses Do What Internet Retailers Can’t
It’s a rough time for small businesses, for retail, and for comic book stores specifically. Last year, nearly 10% of all comic book stores closed. 2017 was the worst year for retail in the history of the United States. But Chimera’s Comics is still here – why? It’s because small businesses have something Internet retailers don’t: added value.
Shopping small sometimes means paying more. It means you don’t get your purchase delivered right to your doorstep without having to leave your couch. But when you pay a little more to a small business you get added value far beyond the product you purchased. You help support events like Free Comic Book Day, where we give away 3,000 free comics every year. You support weekly free gaming tournaments, contests in which we give away thousands of dollars in prizes, and movie screenings where we take hundreds of our customers to the show for free.
Amazon can’t do that for you. Amazon won’t do that for you. But we can. And we do.
Our families, friends, customers, and fans know that Chimera’s Comics isn’t just a store – it’s a community. And if you like a world where you can go to your local comic shop to talk about the things you love, and if you like a world where kids can go to feel safe, and if you like a world where our small towns are fun to walk around and browse then this campaign is your chance to make it happen!
We’re Putting the Money Back Into The Store
Besides the great rewards we’re creating for you, you should pledge to our campaign because we’re going to use the money we raise to make our store better! That’s right – we’re going to invest right back into giving you the best comic book store possible including:
