AFTER 35 YEARS, HOBBY SHOP COMIC QUEST ANNOUNCES CLOSURE
A popular hobby shop in the Philippines is saying goodbye after 35 years of selling comics and a wide variety of merchandise in multiple branches.
Comic Quest announced its closure in a Facebook post on Wednesday, saying it will hold a “farewell sale” from September 16 until October at its branch at SM Megamall.
It cited “the combined pressure of the pandemic, as well as the disruption of the global distribution of comic books,” as the main reasons behind the decision.
“It has been a long and amazing road, from our earliest days in our first branch at BF Homes in Alabang to Greenhills to Makati to multiple branches as far away as SM Cebu. But now the time has come to say goodbye, and let all of you know how much we appreciate being given a chance to be part of the comic book industry,” it said.
