Temporary Closure of our Bank St Location

On the evening of March 27, 2022 a three-alarm fire occurred in a neighbouring business that resides in the same commercial building as our Bank St location.

Fortunately the damages to our store were not severe, and no staff were on site since the accident happened after hours. However, we have been unable to open the store since then, and will need to remain closed for the foreseeable future.

As the Bank St location is home to most of our website operations, all orders and product updates have also been put on hold while we found an interim solution. We apologize for any delays and inconveniences this pause may have caused. We are relieved to announce that starting April 1, 2022, we are switching operations over to our Clyde Ave location until we are able to get Bank St back up and running again in full force.

Please make note of the following changes:

  • Previously processed orders that were ready for pickup at our Bank St location before the closure will not be relocated, and will remain at Bank St until we reopen unless otherwise requested. If you would like us to transfer your order to our Clyde Ave location for pickup instead, please notify us either by responding to your pickup notification email or by filling out the form on our contact us page with your order number.
  • We will be in contact with all customers regarding orders that were placed this past week that have not yet been confirmed and/or processed.
  • New local pickup orders will automatically be set to our Clyde Ave location by default. If you would like to pick up your order at our Bank St location at a later date when we reopen, please indicate this in the special instructions box in your cart before checking out.
  • All orders will have a longer than usual processing time as we work through this transition.

Our regular shipments were still received this week without issue, however we cannot process any of the product until we are able to reopen. Unfortunately this also means that all Bank St subscription comics are not being pulled in the interim. If you would like to pick up your books at Clyde Ave in the meantime, please send an email directly to Bank St (shoppe2) and we will accommodate as best as we can.

We sincerely appreciate your continued support as we work through this phase. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

All the best,
The Comic Book Shoppe Team
