The Facebook page for Forbidden Planet's Aberdeen branch has posted the sad news.
It's with heavy heart and great sadness that we have to announce that Forbidden Planet Aberdeen will be closing from 9th June. In the meantime we're offering a 75% closing down sale discount on everything in the store.
We'd like to thanks our loyal customers for their support over the last 18 years – you guys rule! We're heart-broken over this situation, please be sure to come past and say 'hi' before the doors finally close
We'd like to recommend that our standing order customers switch to the friendly and helpful guys at Plan 9.
Peace, love and Robots

Bleeding Cool tries to mark the passing of comics stores as well as their opening. Existing fanbases are likely to make the former more well known, but please let us know if a comic store is opening or closing in your neighbourhood. Just e-mail email@example.com.
