Another comic shop has closed, this time Comic Parade in Watford, England. A few days ago they announced the news, held a one day closing sale, and then that was it.
With plenty of woe from regular and irregular customers alike. The store had been nominated for the Watford BID Service Excellence Awards in the Independent Retailer category, though with the award due to be given next week, it is unlikely to go to Comic Parade now.
