 A big part of loving comic books is supporting your local comic book retailer. So, to show our support for the local comic shops that the users in our community visit, we ordered 100 window stickers to send to the different shops where you guys purchase your comics. Not only will your local comic shop receive a sticker that they can place in their window, but they will also receive a letter from Comic Vine letting them know that you (the user) gave us a heads up about the shop and that you support them. Who knows, maybe they'll let you score some free GL plastic rings? So, if you guys don't mind, please post the address of your local comic book shop in the forum below, and we will be sure to send them a cool sticker and a letter letting them know that you support them. I can't wait to see how many different cities we get to send these stickers to! 
 
 
 Coming to a local comic shop near you       
First off, thanks to everyone who submitted their comic shops for our window decals. A couple of the shops added to the thread later didn't get sent a window decal and letter from Comic Vine in this round, but they will if we decide to do a 2nd round of mailings. It all depends on how successful this is. 
 
And that's where you come in, again. Below is a list of the location pages on CV for all the shops we mailed to. These are both U.S. and international shops, by the way. Since I just mailed the packages this morning, they'll be arriving at your shops in the next week or so (bit longer for our international audience); so be sure to go check the shop and see if they've gotten the package. Your user names (real names when provided) are in the letters, so make sure and let them know you nominated them! What we'd also love to see is a photo of the sticker in the shop window so we can show that this in fact worked and we can do more! You can add that photo to the location page gallery for your shop (again, listed below)
 
While you're at it, get a photo of the staff at the shops and upload that as the default image for the page. These pages are pretty bare as of now, and we'd love to see some information added to them besides the mailing address. Any special items at your shop? Famous for whatever reason? That's all juicy info for the location page. 
 
Again, we really appreciate you all getting the word about Comic Vine out to your local shops! We think this is going to be awesome, and we're looking forward to building a stronger bond with the shops that provide you the comics you love to read each week. 
 
Best, 
Daniel

   This is awesome that you guys are doing this.  My Comic shop is the best in the country, in my opinion, they have foosball, tv area for watching sports and movies, and a gaming zone with x-box 360, PS3, and the wii.   They also do Magick on the weekends and other gaming as well.  It's a great place to go sit and talk comics, sports, girls, and whatever else comes to mind.  There address is 10355 Federal Blvd

FYI Great topic and idea  @Babs:

(636) 947-8330     
 
The friendliest people i have ever met. All of them are nice, helpful and full of knowledge. They give great recomendations as well as P.O.V. one different characters and arcs if you decide you wanna talk comics or debate while your there. Bar none the best comic store ive ever been to hands down, even against their other chain stores and the bigger named comic stores in the St Louis Missouri area like Star Clipper Comics.  
 
When the time comes to whether or not to switch to digital comics, this comic shop will be the sole reason to keep me from going digital just beacause i want to support them.
