Larry’s Comics run by longstanding and publicly prominent comics retailer Larry Docherty has closed his store in Chelmsford, Massachusetts after previously having his store in neighbouring Lowell. But this is not a permanent thing. He just needs another new location. He writes,
Just a quick heads up. My cute little Ginger-Bread house comic shop is gone. I sold the building & the shop is closed.
I’m going to be scouring the area for the new home of the empire & will let you know ASAP. This isn’t the position I wanted to be in. Buying a building in a historic district was totally my fault. I should have researched it better. It just wasn’t the place for my shop.
I’m not out of business. Running a comic shop is the only thing I ever want to do. I’ll find a place. Very sorry for any inconvenience.
Anyone have any suggestions close by?
