Bergen Street Comics Announces Closure For Next Month

imageThe excellent comic book shop Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn has announced its closure via a post on its web site from Tom Adams, speaking on behalf of himself and Amy Adams. They promise a proper launch for Bergen Street Comics Press and a closing date sometime next month. The post says that the store has been open six years.

I think this will be more and more common in the future as a lot of people do a variety of jobs over their professional lives -- not just by choice, although there's some of that with certain folks, but also because of economic choices at different stages of lives and, as always, the changing retail landscape. I am in awe of anyone who does that job for one year, let alone six or more. I wish all involved with that store the best of luck in the future. It has and will be -- for the next month -- one of the good ones.
