Hot on the heels of my post on all the changes happening on our loved W4th strip, another long standing outlet is closing up shop…the good news is they are re-opening and staying in Kitsilano just a bit further west in the Dunbar community.
The Comic Shop has been a regular feature of the Arbutus and W4th block, 2089 W4th Ave since 1979. It has year after year been voted Vancouver’s Best Comic Shop by the Georgia Straight Best of Awards and has some great history in the community as highlighted on the store’s website.
The store will be closing the doors on their current location at the end of August and opening their new location – 3518 W. 4th Ave (near Dunbar) September 1st. in preparation for the move The Comic Shop is holding a big sale in preparation of their move including up to 80% off some books and products.
No word yet what will be next to move in, but similar to Duthie books it is sad to see a longstanding store have to move from the place they have called home for decades.
