California specialty store closes

Lee's Comics in Mountain View, California, initially was going to put their business on hiatus for 3 weeks because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, however, they're closing their store permanently:
I have some sad news, friends of Lee's Comics. We tried, but we will be unable to re-open in the future as we had hoped. That means, effective immediately, Lee's Comics is no more. We are closed for good. We will not be getting any more New Comics and Graphic Novels.
This suggests even before the outbreak became official, business wasn't doing well enough to keep it open for long. And that makes another sad entry in the list of closures as the medium's business collapses.

Update: here's the story on the closure in the Palo Alto Daily Post.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
