Our comics may arrive a day late this week. From our supplier:
A truck carrying Diamond product from the Plattsburgh Distribution Center to the Olive Branch Distribution Center was involved in a serious accident that will delay some customer shipments of product on sale February 24. The driver was unhurt.
Diamond will be coordinating an emergency shipment for the affected customers. This may result in a delay of one day for direct ship orders placed on Monday, February 22nd.
The Southern Illinoisan has a write up on the store’s 26 years in business.
