Since 1995, comic book fans in the Scotch Plains area have gathered at the Little Shop of Comics to get their fix.

According to the store, “it’s a place for the whole family.”

Since 1995, at Little Shop we have been focused on you, the customer, we want you to feel that Little Shop is your store. At the same time, we would also like you to have a sense of community, a place where you can meet people with the same interests as you. We maintain a large selection of new comics and graphic novels as well as a diverse selection of pop culture artifacts.”

But now we learn that the owners will close the doors of the brick and mortar part of their business at the end of the year, while remaining open online.

Owners Steve and Lena Olsen said in an email to TapInto, “We talked about it for a few years, and during COVID we determined that the operation management was not allowing us to live… We determined that it was time to end the brick and the mortar during confinement, all before any madness of the distributor.”

The store’s main entrance was closed for weeks after a car crashed into the building.

The store will live online here.

In addition to comics and graphic novels, the online store will also offer games, Funko pop figures, toys and models.
