Current Store Hours

Posted by ShowcaseComicsandGames on August 14, 2020 at 11:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Our stores are open, but complying with local and state regulations to prevent the spread of C-19.

-Masks must be worn at all times in the stores. This is not optional. If you cannot wear a mask for some reason, you should contact the store to arrange for curbside pick-up or mail order. Anyone in the store must wear a mask at all times.

-Customers and Staff need to practice social distancing while in the store. This means trying to stay 6 feet from other people. 

-Hand sanitizer is at the front of each store. Please use it before touching merchandise. 

-Restrooms are closed. 

-We are running NO EVENTS. We are not running Friday night magic, any type of tournament, no painting classes, no DND adventure league. We are not hosting FCBD. You may not bring in friends to play DND or other games. 

-The Auction is postponed indefinitely. 

-Limited wargaming is allowed. 2 people per 8'x4' table. Maintain distancing from other tables. Call ahead to make sure there will be space for you. 

These are our current store hours at both shops

Mon, Tue, Wed, Thur, Sat    From 11am to 7pm
Friday                                   From 11am to 9pm
Sunday                                 From 12pm to 5pm

The stores are basically one man shops right now, with Mike and Chris working long hours and Kevin and Nate filling in. Please have some patience with us, things may be a bit slower than normal.

Warehouses and manufacturers are also understaffed. Re-stocks are taking a week or two, not two days. And we are only getting about half of what we order. This health crisis is affecting all links in the chain.

Mysterious boxes are on the way from the Wizards

So mysterious that we don't know when they are getting here.....but the word "June" has been mentioned.  These boxes are being given to each store in the WPN to help with the costs of maintaining our stores during the C-19 shutdowns. And we are going to be selling them locally at a great price. 

Pre-order your Mystery Box now for 125.00 plus tax in the online store and it will be waiting for you at Bryn Mawr or Swarthmore when they arrire in June!

More Stuff!

It's been awhile since I updated our drawing for the limited Catachan Colonel. We've at the level where will be giving away not 1, but 2 of the colonel, and with a little push it's going to go to 3. Here's what we have to add to the pile for now:


The Battle For Armageddon, an excellent account of the last Armageddon war.

Fantasy Miniatures, an early GW artbook with Golden Demon and other miniatures showcased.

Fabius Bile in blister

Plague Marine Champion Blister

Berzerker of Khorne on Juggernaut


These models were donated by the community. We'll be seeing a few more when we hit the next level including some Rogue Trader era figures!


Want a chance at all these goodies? Head on over to the online store on our website and buy 'The Hot Ticket'. More tickets, more chances to win.
