Dear Picnic family & friends:
Happy Holidays to all! Thanks to everyone who read Kelly’s missive and came out to shop here in the last weekend before Christmas! We had a wonderful closing weekend. Still, we are running behind where we need to be, so we are going to end the year with a giant sale. Starting Thursday, December 27 and running through Monday, December 31 almost everything in the store — new comics, graphic novels, regular back issues, t-shirts, cards — will be 40% OFF. There will be a few exceptions: books in your sub folder are still 20% off; back issues behind the counter will be 20% off; and any existing special orders or books or books on hold won’t be discounted. Other than that, if something isn’t in a box in the store, it will be discounted 40%.
As we conclude our 44th year in Harvard Square, it is impossible not to notice how rapidly the Square is changing. Another business seems to close or move every other week. Tess, Crema Cafe, Tealuxe, Vision House — all shuttered. Urban Outfitters is closing its doors in early January. In the short run there is less and less to bring people to this side of the Square.
So, The Picnic is going to try to keep rolling with the punches and adapting to the new retail landscape. We are going to greatly increase our online presence. We are already listing back issues on Etsy and hope to have old comics, graphic novels, and undergrounds up on both eBay and Amazon in the next couple of months. We are sitting on thousands of Silver Age comics, rare undergrounds, out-of-print graphic novels, imported horror magazines, and foreign language comics; and we are going to try to find a way to get it all up on E-commerce sites and our own website. And, for as long as we can, we are going to keep cramming as much wonderful stuff as we can into this tiny space of ours.
Also, we are going to take some time to celebrate our 45th anniversary in 2019! I’m hoping we can invite friends both old and new to come celebrate with us!
All the best,
The Million Year Picnic
