The irony does not
escape me that I have to post an announcement on a NEW RELEASE
WEEK date WEDNESDAY APRIL 1st 2020. What are the
odds that this would happen on such a date? Go figure,
then let me know.
you've been living under a rock, or just woke up from a coma,
you most likely are already aware that our Country (and the
World) are dealing with a Pandemic, with multiple states in the
US declaring a STAY AT HOME order, normal small business like
ours are having to shut down their PHYSICAL STORES. We
have STAY AT HOME orders in all 3 states that we do business -
ILLINOIS, WISCONSIN & CALIFORNIA.
WEDNESDAY March 25th, was the LAST NEW COMIC WEEK until this
PANDEMIC is over. The sole comic distributor in
the U.S. has decided to halt shipping all product (when a
mjaority of your customers can't receive product - what good
does it do?) - and I appreciate their doing this. I
believe it was the correct move, even if a week too late.
This situation is not just for us, but for ALL COMIC SHOPS
across the U.S. and U.K. There won't be any NEW COMICS
until this crisis has passed.
Crackers Comics followed the law and shut down our physical
shops. We stopped direct contact with our customer base
and have been MAILING customers their comics (those that have
requested it) - the rest of you will still have your books
waiting for you when GRAHAM CRACKERS COMICS re-opens.
When will we re-open?
As soon as we're giving the all clear by our states, we will be
back in business and hope you are able to return as well.
Will things be different?
We would assume so. Even if the Pandemic starts to clear
up with less people catching the virus, we imagine that a SOCIAL
DISTANCING order will still be in place. We won't just
wake up one day and find that 'poof' magically the virus is
gone. It's more likely going to be a gradual return to
what you might call 'business as usual'. We are assuming
social distancing, limiting the # of peole in the shops at once,
will be the norm for the near future.
Our website is still open & receiving orders,
packing orders and shipping orders 7 days a week. It's a
skeleton staff to be sure - but we're doing our best to keep you
Like a lot of you, these are very
trying times for Graham Crackers Comics. Our stores are
closed, yet landlords still want their rent, insurance companies
still want their payments, utility companies, and of course
suppliers shipping us product we aren't allowed to sell.
If you're in a position that allows you to,
we GREATLY appreciate any website orders you can place with us.
We've got them on the site and we
have ONE OF THE LARGEST SELECTIONS ON-LINE. Just compare
us to any other online shop and I think you'll be amazed at the
depth of the back stock.
placed helps us keep the company going until the ALL CLEAR sign
comes. I appreciate your reading this and hope your job is
still solid and you've been able to work from home in some
capacity during this very difficult time.
Thanks from all of us
at GRAHAM CRACKERS COMICS.
