Work is continuing…

We’ve been disassembling all the manga shelves and moving everything to the small patch of carpet in the back. Then we prepped the walls and started to paint.

The carpet roll-out is not be going as smoothly as expected. Hopefully this won’t be too much of a delay.



Remodel update-Flooring Selections

We have the wall coming down tomorrow so I thought I’d share with you today what we picked out as far as flooring.

The Carpet has streaks of silver that don’t show up as well in the picture.

The bathroom floor will have a laminated wood tile it should look really nice.

Annex Shop is now open!

We were working hard on Mon. moving inventory to our space next door.

These are a few things to note before coming:

  • Only one group allowed in at a time
  • Masks on and over the nose while you are here.
  • We cannot take trade-ins
  • We don’t have access to our full inventory
  • Please be patient with us. We are working really hard to make the shop even more awesome than it was before.
