HIGHLAND PARK — Thank You Comics will be closing shop at the end of February after opening up on York Boulevard more than 2-1/2 years ago. The final day for new comics will be Wednesday, February 25, according to an email the comic shop sent out Wednesday.
“We understand that finding a local comic shop that fits your needs can be difficult and would like to offer you the very same subscription services at our sister-store, The Secret Headquarters, in Silver Lake.”
Co-owners David Pifer and David Ritchie opened 1,000-square-foot Thank You Comics in 2012 on the bustling York Boulevard, with its boutique appeal, brightly colored walls and stock of comics, books and graphic novels. The owners were hoping to fill in an underserved comic book market in Northeast L.A.
The owners did not say why they were closing the Highland Park store.
