Comic Quest Weekly for 8/26/2018

 WORKING THE QUEST! 

by Jim Jones, President and owner of Comic Quest!

   Recently I have had the opportunity of working several days at Comic Quest, most of the time with another employee present, but twice recently by myself. I can say I really enjoyed seeing old acquaintances that I remember seeing many years ago when I worked full time at the store. It is really awe-inspiring to see a young father with his son only to realize that I knew the father when he was a child. To see a former customer, now a loving father share his love of the characters that populate the comic shop makes me wistful and has me hoping that we have had a positive impact on the community. We can only hope that we can continue having a positive impact on the Tri-State community through the entertainment we provide in comics, games, toys and more.

We are approaching our 28th year here at Comic Quest and at times like this it is makes me reflective of the changes we have experienced during that time. There have been highs and lows as the business as ebbed and flowed.  We once opened a second store…we have moved three times…we have had many employees come and go…and I once left my profession for about ten years to work Comic Quest only to later return to my mental health/trauma/marriage counseling practice (www.jamesjoneslcsw.com) which I continue to enjoy today.  I want to thank all of our patrons…to the first customers who saw our first 10 ft wide store…to those of you today who have seen us grow in size and revenue to the place we are today. 28 years is a long time….and we owe it to all of you.

Maybe we can have a 28 year celebration sometime in the next several weeks to show some of our appreciation of your support of us for that past 28 years!
