Foe Frankie's Comics is a small shop located in a quiet section of Rockville, Maryland. It was founded by Frankie Quinones in 1995. He is a comic artist and publisher of children's comic books. Recently though, he has had to leave the comic publishing business because of his battle with cancer. His wife Karen decided to pick up where he left off in starting Foe Nerds Comics.
Foe's comics are available at a small shop that sells mainly knick knacks and gifts. The store sells about forty titles. Most of the comic titles are from unknown publishers, but there are some that are known favorites among their customers. These comic books are usually priced very reasonably.
Many comic stores have gone out of business in Rockville because of the recession. Many comic stores in the area have seen the same fate as the others. For this reason, it has become more important for people in Rockville to have their own comic store.
If you are thinking of opening a store of your own, here are a few things to consider. The first thing that you need to do is find a location for your store. You must be able to find a place with enough room to accommodate your comic book collection. You should also figure out how much your store will cost you. Make sure that you are getting a good deal on rent as well.
When you start your comic store, you must consider the type of merchandise that you will be selling. This means that you have to determine what type of comic you are going to sell. There are several types of comic that you can sell. You should choose the type that you think will be profitable.
If you are going to sell children's comic books, you should know which age groups you should cater to. This means that you have to make sure that you know the demographics of your potential customers. The main target market of Frankie'S Comics is children. However, adult readers like crime and action comics. As such, you should focus your efforts on these types of comics.
It is important to keep your comics collection up-to-date. You should buy new issues of comics every month. This will ensure that you have a steady supply of new readers. To attract customers, you can also give away free issues. This will make your comic store seem appealing to teens and young adults. Even if they do not purchase anything from your comic store, they will at least try out what you have to offer.
These are some of the basics of starting a comic store. There are a lot of other things that you will need to learn in order to be successful. In fact, there are even more challenges that you may run into as your business grows. However, with a good start, you can surely be a successful comic store owner!
One challenge that you will face when opening a comic store is getting your books in stock. You must keep in mind that many customers buy comics just to add them to their growing book collection. Therefore, you should always have an unlimited and well stocked comic book selection. Make sure that you always have titles that are popular among buyers.
You will also have to keep track of your customer's orders and stock availability. One way to do this is to use an electronic order system (EDS). This will allow you to print out orders for customers and have them picked up from your local comic store. With proper record keeping, you can estimate how many comics you should sell per week and how much you should charge for each order.
Aside from ordering, you will also have to advertise your comic store. You can put up posters, flyers, and even banners. The best way to advertise is online. Simply sign up with Google AdSense and set up the ads. It is important to keep the ad size small so that it does not take up all of the space on your website. You can also join various discussion forums online and talk about your comic store.
Establishing your comic store is very rewarding. It is exciting to see people come in droves asking for your comics. It is also very challenging. You should be prepared to answer questions about your comics and have a very friendly staff to work with. Keep in mind that with a little hard work and patience, you can succeed in this business.
