What Makes A Great Comic Book Store?
What makes a great comic book store? Tell me what you think, and I might give you my store.
You read that right.
I’m giving away a local comic shop. The inventory, the fixtures, the goodwill, the customer base, six years of history…and it can all be yours. Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Since 2013, Chimera’s Comics has brought its signature service, selection, and style to Oak Lawn. I recently faced the hard fact that I can no longer give it the attention it deserves, because I’m spread thin between my duties as an attorney, Chimera’s Comics La Grange location, and the new publishing branch of Chimera’s Comics.
There has been a comic book store in Oak Lawn since I was a baby. It’s where I grew up. But the store needs someone there who will love it and take care of it the way I can’t anymore.
I want someone who will love it, someone with passion and ideas and ambition to make this store amazing. Is that you?
How Does It Work?
All you have to do is apply. There will be a small application fee, and you will have no more than 500 words to answer one question:
What makes a great comic book store?
I will choose the best answer, and give that person a chance to live their dream.
This is not a raffle, not a drawing or a lottery. This is entirely merit-based and I will decide the winner in my sole and absolute discretion.
Limited Time Only – And Even More Limited Space
Applications are now open.
But you can’t wait to enter – the contest ends either February 28, 2019 OR when I receive 2,000 applications – whichever happens first.
Sign up below and I will email you the moment we start accepting application, so you can be one of the first to apply. Remember, time is limited and so are the number of spots – so you’ll want to apply ASAP.
This email list will be the first place I announce the contest is live, so you’ll have the best chance of getting in.
Tell Me About The Store
I’m giving away the Oak Lawn location of Chimera’s Comics. It’s approximately 1,500 square feet perfect for comics, gaming, toys and more.
We’ve been open in Oak Lawn for six years, in which time we’ve built up a loyal customer base including hundreds of customer contacts and nearly 1,000 Facebook page followers.
