We are so very pleased to officially announce the opening of our brand new, second Brampton location on Saturday June 29th 2013! And what better way to celebrate the opening of a new store, than with an event like FREE GRAPHIC NOVEL DAY!
Stadium Comics’ second location – our “Sidekick” location as we like to call it – will have some pretty cool things going on that you’ll definitely want to check out:
Lots of people have asked where the back issues have gone from our store at Shoppers World. They’ve moved to their permanent home at our Sidekick location! This includes “bargain bin” comics. The most recent back issues (6 months to 1 year) will still be found at our Shoppers World store.
Do you like the discount graphic novels we’ve been carrying at our store? Well you’ll be able to find more of them at our Sidekick store!
This is what has us the most excited! Our new store will feature a large event room, allowing us to do the things we couldn’t do at our current mall location! We’ll be hosting events like tournaments, board game nights, midnight book launches, comic jams, workshops, movie nights, gallery events, and so much more! We’ll be releasing an event calendar closer to our grand opening. It’s basically going to be Jay Gatsby’s house, but nerdier.
Our new store will be located at 2 Bram Court, which is in the Rutherford Rd/Steeles Avenue area of Brampton. It’s a location convenient for public transit, and is a short walk to the Grande movie theater, Lowes, and a brand new WalMart that will be opening in the near future.
FREE GRAPHIC NOVEL DAY
To celebrate the grand opening of our new store in grand style, we figured a free comic book just wouldn’t do! Come to our new location on Saturday June 29th 2013, and receive a FREE graphic novel for making ANY purchase that day. The item you buy can be as cheap as that $1 back issue in our bargain bin (though we’ll gladly help you spend more with the awesome sales we’ll be having!)
We’ll have a selection of 5-10 different graphic novel titles for you to choose from. We’ll have a good quantity of them on hand to give away, but you’ll want to come early for the best selection!
Also what would an event at Stadium be without some awesome comic artist signings, and a huge sale? We’ll have both of those happening as well on Saturday June 29th. Keep watching our website and Facebook and Twitter pages for more details coming soon.
Do you like what you’re hearing so far? So do we! Mark June 29th on your calendars now – we hope to see you all there! In the meantime, if you want to get a sneak peek at what our new place looks like so far (there’s still lots of work to do), you can watch our latest Unboxing Wednesdays video which was filmed on location!
