Based on the most recent statements from Governor DeWine regarding "non-essential retail" shops, we are planning to reopen Alter Ego Comics on May 12, 2020, but, your safety, and the safety of my team, is our top priority. To that end, when we reopen:
All staff members will be wearing masks
All staff members and customers will have their temperature taken via infrared thermometer
There will be hand-sanitizer throughout the shop
A limited number of customers will be allowed inside at a time
Reduced store hours in the short term
Like the rest of the country, we are testing things out as we go along, so thank you in advance for your cooperation. As for new comic books, it looks like we’ll start seeing those in mid-late May. In the meantime, we are holding our online sales Wednesday nights, restocking graphic novels weekly, and we’re still receiving Funko shipments and some game shipments.
Be smart.Stay safe.-- Marc Bowker, Chief Everything Officer, Alter Ego Comics.
