Chicago Comic Shop For Sale. $125,000 ONO

So,who wants to buy a comic store? Here’s an email sent to me – sadly, I don’t have the money. And Chicago is a hell of a commute. So… anyone else fancy taking them up on their offer?

Brainstorm Movies, Comics and Gaming, located at 1648 W. North Avenue is up for sale. Since 2003 when Brainstorm first opened, we’ve raised the bar and set the standard for customer service. Our customer loyalty is unprecedented and we have a solid customer base that has been with us for many years. In a constantly changing marketplace, Brainstorm has managed to remain competitive by understanding the difference between market value and customer value.

We believe that this is still a viable model and if we can, we would love to pass it on to someone else who will love it as much as we do.

So if you’ve dreamed of owning your own shop or you are wanting to expand your current business, then this is your opportunity.

This is what we’re offering for $125,000.00.

* A base of over 365 subscribers, including mail order customers.
* Established brand name recognition.
* DVD rental inventory that can be kept in the current model or sold off.
* Fixtures and display racks.
* POS system and entire network of computers and equipment.
* Current in store inventory worth an excess of $75,000.00.
* Long term staff who know the customer base.

We do have an interested party who would be willing to negotiate on spliting the cost with someone else. Interested parties should contact Matt or Robert at Brainstorm.

We appreciate all of your interest! Thank you!
