The Gosh! Authority 28.12.17
Welcome back! Christmas is over and a New Year awaits. Of course the real question is: what comics are you going to be reading as the clock chimes midnight? Well, we might just be able to help you out there, but first a little housekeeping.
As mentioned last week, deliveries this week and next are pushed back to Thursday, and will be arriving on the day to go out. That means it's unlikely anything will be on the shelves at opening. We'd hope to have it all out by lunchtime, but keep an eye on our social media feeds where we'll announce it as soon as they're available.
Also, we'll be operating reduced hours on Sunday the 31st, from 10.30am - 3pm, and will be closed on Monday the 1st for some much-needed R&R.
But make sure to get yourselves back in for the 2nd, because that's when we kick off our annual JANUARY SALE! Thousands of graphic novels reduced by up to 80%, plus all of our back issues downstairs (including packs) on sale for just 50% of their marked price. No reservations, first come first served, so we'll see you outside the doors at 10.30am on Tuesday the 2nd! And remember: stocks are refreshed throughout the month, so it's worth checking back while the sale lasts, until Sunday the 31st January.
Okay, it's a funny old week, so we're doing things in a slightly abbreviated fashion. Bulletpoints ahoy! I'll link each highlight title to an online blurb containing more information, and rest assured we'll be back to full service next week.
