From the store owner of Blue Moon Comics and my friend, Sam Shiffler:
"Here is an update to the status of the shop: As you know, if you have been in and talked to us, we are deciding whether we will have to close the shop at the end of 2019 because of the decline of business here in San Rafael/Marin County. At this time we have asked our landlord for a 1 year extension on our lease, which is up at the end of this year. We will make the decision when we know their answer. Right now, business is so bad the it may not matter whether they approve another year. We might not be able to afford to stay open.
We have been serving Marin county since July 1, 1998 when we opened our doors in Novato. It has been a good run that we would like to continue but, the comic community is speaking through sales and it/you may not need/want a comic shop in Marin. Until that time, we are here to hopefully give you your comic needs and if we don’t have it in stock please ask to see if we can get it."
