Thanks to everyone we saw at the Niagara Falls Comic Con on June 5-7, we got in last minute as an exhibitor. Also thanks to the fine people we saw and purchased items from us at the Toronto Comic Book Show on Sunday, June 14th. We also went to the Ancaster Collectibles show on May 30, but we’re trying to forget the downpour that ruined load in and load out for us.
We’ve been at our new delivery and pick-up system for two months now and we’ll be making some necessary changes going into July.
1. Daytime delivery will end after June 24.
Very few customers using the delivery service combined with low orders and cost of delivery = losses, so as of the week of July 1 we will not be doing daytime deliveries. Some clients who used to receive daytime delivery will now be getting their books in the evening, or they should make plans to pick them up from our pick-up locations during weekdays or on Saturday.
2. On August 1, the customer discount becomes qualified.
After August 1, in order to qualify for a 20% discount a customer must spend $80 or more after exchange, not including taxes. In order to justify the expenses and freebies we offer (free Previews, all comics bagged and boarded) we need to be making a minimum amount per month in orders from every customer. We’re not going to cut down the perks, but we can’t offer a price break if the customer’s orders are low.
