On June 2, from 7 a.m. until about 5 p.m., the store parking lot will close for sealing and striping. You will need to park in the municipal lot east of the store during those hours which costs a quarter per hour.

Happy Mother’s Day. While they last, all mothers coming into the store tomorrow will receive a flower, complements of the store.
Join us for Free Comic Book Day. Every customer gets 2 free comic books (you must choose different titles. We don’t want one person scooping up 10 copies of the Secret Wars books).

You get 1 book for Preferred Customer Status, 1 for each two comics you buy off the rack, 2 if you come in costume, 2 for each graphic novel, 1 for each 5 cans of usable food, and 1 for each stamp you earn on your Castle Cards. Buy at least $10 worth of art from Capybara Ink and get another free comic.

We have the photos processed from the 25th anniversary party and will have them posted in the store photo albums later this week.
In case you happen to have noticed, the area received a lot of snow Sunday and Monday. However the store will remain open regular hours though a lot of the evening events have been canceled. If you are coming in for a specific event, best call us first or check our Facebook page or Twitter feed to make sure we are still hosting it.
