Jason St. Mega-Store Setting Sales Records

Howdy!

I've been going through yet another box of old Mile High Comics paperwork, deciding what to recycle, and what needs shredding. Most of this paperwork is quite old, so each piece acts as a memory trigger of a time in our company history that is now long since gone by. In all honesty, I find myself giving heartfelt thanks for the fact that we now have but one giant store (as opposed to eight smaller locations...), and that we have reduced our online footprint considerably. There was certainly a time and place for our being a much larger company, but these days (at nearly 70 years of age) I am profoundly grateful that we are operating at a much more comfortable scale.

That having been said, the fates have conspired to keep unrelenting pressure on me by having the City of Denver rezone our Jason St. building for mixed use/condos, with up to five stories allowable on our two-acre lot. My neighboring property owners here in the Sunnyside business district are quite peeved about the outcome of this recent rezoning, as they are all developers, and they really want to construct ten-story condo complexes all around our building. If they succeed in their zoning appeal, our present $175,000/year property tax levy could soon seem small by comparison. Arrgh!

Anyhoo, these unrelenting property tax escalations oftentimes make me feel like a hamster running on a wheel while locked in a cage, going faster and faster to get... nowhere. I have searched for miles around our Jason St. location for other potential buildings to which we could move, but there are simple none that provide the unique site characteristics of size and access that have made Jason St. such an amazing success. That leaves me no other option but to fight in place, struggling every day to grow our business at a rate that keeps pace with the unrelenting property tax increases.

Long story a bit shorter, this summer has turned out to be remarkably successful for us here at Jason St., with sales climbing by 30%+ during the first two weeks of July versus the same two weeks last year. Making that success all the more unique is that many comics retailers with who I speak relate to me that they are struggling to even come close to matching their 2023 numbers. We seem to be the anomaly in this year's down comics market, and for those blessings we are truly grateful. If you have visited us this year, or placed an online order, we sincerely thank you! Your kindness and generous financial assistance have helped to mitigate what might otherwise have been an untenable situation. Thank you.


Auction on July 27th

OK, that's it for today. I'll close by pointing out that our 60% off SUMMER! codeword sale remains in effect for you on all ten million+ back issue comics and magazines that we have in stock. Only new issues, a few variants and restored comics, and our professionally-graded items are exempt. Also, please note that our two buyers, Will Moulton and Pam Brandle, have provided photos at the end of this newsletter of all of the lots that will be auctioned (with no reserves) next Saturday morning (July 27th) beginning at 11:30 AM.
