Planet X Comics and Collectibles would like to thank all of the customers who visited us at the Flea Market in West York today. A great time time was had by all, and a little rain could not dampen the enthusiasm of York's Coolest Comic Store. Initial response to our fledgling business was extremely positive, and the event was perfect for getting some grass roots marketing to establish our presence in our community.
We want to send Special Thanks to Blake, our first official Retail Customer. He is an awesome guy, and a perfect fit for our target demographic. At ten years old, he is the President of G.R.I.P.S., the Glen Rock International Paranormal Society. An avid Ghost Hunter, he enjoys reading Comics and loves the television show Destination: Truth. I know, right? He's the man.

Welcome back True Believers! Today we achieved two milestones in the process of establishing our own business. First, we delivered the final edited copy of our Business Plan to the York office of the Small Business Administration. This is in our attempt to procure an additional cash infusion at launch, a danger that plagues many small businesses at their most vulnerable time- the Beginning!
The second milestone- We finally purchased our fixtures for our brick and mortar store. This is a critical step for us. Many thanks to Teresa from Hollywood Video for totally hooking us up! She was easy to do business with and just a totally all- around cool person. Tomorrow Rich and I are heading over there with a rented U- Haul Truck to pick up shelves, signs, racks and the various odds and ends needed for any self respecting Comic Store. I assure you, it will be nine kinds of awesome! Stay Tuned for the next step- the Train has left the station!
