Afterschool Help Wanted:
Apply in person with your resume (please no phone calls)
Applicant(s) must have a positive attitude, be willing to learn, and be able to work from 3 PM to 5 PM Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Duties include: Cleaning, Restocking, Sales (customer service), and other Projects that may come up!
Nothing says “Christmas” like shipping delays!
At this time of year, I think people have almost come to expect the worst.
And here we are.
After a full week of delays, our “Invincible Iron Man” Heroclix shipment has arrived!
Most admit, I feel really fortunate to have a GREAT GROUP OF REGULARS that have a seemingly endless supply of patience and understanding. Delivery dates came and went (without delivery), connections were missed (Purolator status: “Missed Connection”), and snow: lots and lots of snow happened. But, our players stuck by me and I really do appreciate that. To make it up to you, I’m going to do my best to get all of my preorder accounts one Power Source for their Mandarin Rings!
Thanks go out to all of sales reps and distributors- thank you for your patience with me and all of your shipping updates- I know I must’ve been a real nuisance calling and emailing you everyday asking for more info. Sorry and thank you, guys!
So, our “Invincible Iron Man” Launch Party has been pushed back to tomorrow: Thursday, November 28 @ 6 PM!
See you all, HERE! =)
I mean a whole week without comics! It’s unthinkable!
Well, the comic gods smile upon this week and everything has arrived (including the missing shipment from November 19)! So, this week we have a double dose of comic goodness!
Hope to see you all soon and thank you so much for your patience and understanding!
Just got an email from Diamond Comics (our distributor) stating the comic shipment scheduled to arrive Wednesday, November 20, 2013 has been tentatively delayed until Friday, November 22, 2013! =(
What happened was this: the truck that all of our comics were on got into an accident and the insurance company is holding onto the truck to assess damage. Diamond and everyone involved is doing the best that they can and this is a problem that ALL comic stores in Edmonton will have (not localized to just us).
Again, very sorry for the delay and hope to have all of the comics on Friday (but it may not be until Monday before they arrive).
Here is a link listing all of the delayed comics: http://www.previewsworld.com/shipping/newreleases.txt
And, here is a copy of the email that got sent out to all Edmonton comic stores:
********** UPDATED EDMONTON SHIPPING ADVISORY **********
Dear Valued Diamond Customer:
The truck carrying this week’s shipment to the Edmonton drop point is
still being held by the insurance company to assess damage and the
safety of the vehicle. We currently estimate that it will deliver to
Edmonton in time for customers to be able to pick-up sometime on Friday,
November 22. Please be advised that this information is subject to
change and Diamond will email you with any new updates as we receive
If you receive store delivery via courier, our current estimations of
arrival dates means your shipment will not deliver until early next
week. Therefore, if you would like to pick this shipment up at the drop
point (assuming the current Friday pick up estimation holds) so you have
it before the weekend please notify your customer service representative
and we can arrange that for you.
If you have any questions please contact your Diamond customer service

It was great see everyone from Calgary, Red Deer, and Lethbridge yesterday at the “Breast Cancer Brawl“!
Big shout out and special thanks to the hosts and organizers: The COGS (especially, Brynn Holdstock and Mike Farago- pictured above) for putting together this incredible fund raiser event! They raised approx $3500 CAN for Cancer Research in one day!

I apologize to anyone who was planning on dropping by (please send me a PM and we can work this out!).
