Greetings and salutations Third Eye Faithful,
For over 10 years, we’ve been giving you the best darn brick and mortar comic shop experience in the country, and now, we want to do our damndest to bring that same level of customer service, excellent selection, and most importantly, passion for comics retail to those of you who live just a bit too far to visit Third Eye on the regular!
Why did it take us this long? I’ll be honest: we weren’t ready. While we’ve sold online through various marketplaces like eBay, and other avenues — I didn’t feel we were at the point where we could match the same level of experience that our stores offered. And, those of you who have been to our shops, know all too well just how important that experience is to us.
So, why now? Well, there’s a few reasons, but just like any time we open a new brick-and-mortar store, it’s about the people.
Over the course of the last few years, we’ve been so darn lucky to have built an army of awesome people who love comics, and even more importantly, care just as much as we do about giving people a great comic shopping experience.
One of those people is the very talented Rea, who many of you who have shopped our eBay storefront, or purchased comics through us via our admittedly old school but also trademark Third Eye personable “Tell us what you want — we’ll send you a PayPal invoice, and then ship it out!” method, are already familiar with.
If you’ve shopped with us online, then you can thank Rea and her amazing mail-order team for the incredible and safe packing job, the fast shipping speed, and most important, the personalized touch of getting to know our online customers just as well as we know our in-store customers.
We knew that with someone like Rea behind the wheel, it was time to take the jump into bringing Third Eye online in a truly legit fashion, and thanks to our trusty pals at Brightlight Media, we feel we’ve put together a pretty great way to do that.
Now, one quick thing before you start pointing and clicking, I’m gonna be honest: while we’re not new at selling comics, and we’re definitely not new at shipping you comics, our site is brand new, and there’s still a lot of little things we’re going to be doing as time goes by. One of the biggest things is adding inventory, and we’re working as fast as we can to beef up that stock for you.
Right now, you can rest assured – new releases will be up every week 7 days prior to release, and then our backstock is being populated as I speak. On a side-note, I know there’s always going to be something about our process that we can do better… I wanna hear it! If you have any questions, or input about the site – please shoot them to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just like with our brick-and-mortar stores, this is a work-in-progress, and we’re always looking for ways to make it better for YOU, Third Eye Faithful!
Until next time, Third Eye Faithful…
BUY THIRD EYE OR DIE!
