Star Port, Lynchburg, Virginia’s last full-service comic book store closed a few weeks ago.
Located inside River Ridge Mall since 2014, the owner told the local news that he blamed the closure on online shopping such as Amazon, and on shoplifting. They have since removed their Facebook and web presence.
