Can You Help Save OK Comics?

Can You Help Save OK Comics?

Days after we hear about the closure of Rocketship, I hear of another comic store in danger of closing its doors.

But this time you have a chance to help prevent it.

OK Comics in Leeds has found itself in a bit of a pickle.  Scaffolding outside the shop and major rennovation to the Arndale shopping centre that it is a part of.

And what with the scaffolding, workmen, dust and noise, passing trade has bottomed out. And the net reslt is that five weeks in, the ongoing existence of the shop has been threatened.

So OK Comics are asking customers to do the following;

If there is a book or comic you were thinking of trying, do OK Comics a favour and try it now.
If you've ordered something and have yet to pick it up, do it today.
Recommend OK Comics to your friends.
If it's been a while since you collected your standing order, do it very soon.
If you've got a friend who's got a birthday coming up, buy their present from OK Comics now.

OK Comics still have the 50p back issue selection with sales and changing special offers. Those interested can follow their Twitter and Facebook accounts.

I'm going to take a browse through their website and ebay store. OK Comics is not just OK… it's a good comic shop, and I always pop in whenever I'm back in Leeds. It would be nice to do the same the next time I'm in town.

Ooh look, they take Paypal.
