Hello Thunderstruck Fans,
I hope you have been doing well.
I've mentioned in my last email doing an update for May 12th,, and it has come and gone as information changing day by day, that I was mostly awaiting Thursday's announcement.
The go ahead has been given with allowing businesses with a street entrance to be open. This includes Thunderstruck!
However though, for Covid safety reasons, I am still coming up with a decision on how and which day the opening will happen. I will inform you in this Tuesday's email, which will be starting back up again with weekly releases.
But the store will open sometime in the week for sure. Doing my best to hit a day, even if it might be a soft opening to begin with.
Which leads to this other good news. Shipping has resumed from Diamond Distributors. There will be just a few new comics and graphic novels coming out this Wednesday, May 20th, as a start and mainly DC Comic titles for now.
And speaking of DC Comics, who have now scheduled their new release day to a Tuesday. Thunderstruck will still stick to releasing all new comics on Wednesdays, as it has always been. It just works better on a weekly basis of how the store operates.
With shipping resuming, also requests can be fulfilled once again of items that are out of stock, with hopefully a 2 week receiving timeline.
If you haven't heard yet, Thunderstruck now also has a new online store on Shopify!
You can choose from two delivery options of mailing, or pick up at the store.
The inventory is still being filled in daily, or as time allows me to input stuff in. The regular website still has the backup of most of Thunderstruck's products in picture format.
Or just email me if there is something you're looking for.
For the next days, Curb-side Pickup is still on for this Saturday, and then Tuesday, both from Noon to 7pm.
And the options for curb-side pickup or mailing will remain available, for as long as it needs to be, even when the store will be operating for regular business.
Thank you for your support,
Stay well, safe, and have a great long weekend!
