Let me preface this review by saying I'm NOT the type of person to write reviews when I had a bad experience at a store. I completely understand that no one is perfect. In fact this if the first bad review I have ever written and may even be the last. I was extremely disappointed with my experience here. I took a 30 minute trip to check out this store because I love visiting comic shops that I've never been to before. My visit started off on a bad foot because I asked the employee (i'm pretty sure it was the manager) if I could use their bathroom because I had just been in the car for a half hour. He replied by saying that they don't have one (which is ridiculous because obviously they do he just didn't want me to use it). The comic shops I frequent have NO PROBLEM letting customers use their bathrooms. It's just good customer service. Next during my entire visit the manager was criticizing his employee for the way the books were displayed on the shelf. I found it very distasteful to do so especially in front of customers. Then when I was ready to pay, the manager was doing something else and he didn't stop to take care of me. I had to wait several minutes for him to ring me up (I'm generally not impatient but I was in a bit of a hurry). That was all disappointing, but I can look past most of it. The worst thing about the trip presented itself when I got home. I bought a Marvel Select action figure for $20 (standard new in box price), but when I went to open it I realized it was all scotch taped from the inside so you couldn't tell. When I pulled the plastic clam shell off of the cardboard backing it was reattached but had clearly been previously opened! THE MANAGER SOLD IT TO ME LIKE IT WAS NEW AND FOR A NEW IN BOX PRICE!!! Unbelievable. If they were honest and made that clear I still may have bought it but NOT for $20. That is extremely misleading dishonest and the primary factor that pushed me to write this review. Pulling tricks like that is just BAD BAD BUSINESS. Anyway I will definitely not give that store my money ever again. Too bad.

Its a great place to go and browse around. They have a vast selection and a very friendly and co-operative staff. The prices are reasonable and you can get a pretty decent collection to choose form. The store itself is very pretty and well maintained.

PROS: Great customer service, selection
CONS:
