Star Clipper, an outstanding comic shop in St. Louis, Missouri, has been around for 25 years. I can see why, if this kind of creative thinking in response to competition is typical. (I’ve not had the pleasure of visiting, myself, but clearly, I should.)
This year, they’ve created a presale price guarantee. If you commit to preordering a graphic novel from them (and leave a deposit), they will match Amazon’s price on “any graphic novel not yet released”. So you can get great prices and support a local shop. And while you’re in the store, you might find a few other things you can’t live without…
Has your local comic store done anything similar or engaged in other creative marketing or sales practices? Let me know in the comments.
