FREE COMIC BOOK DAY :: Saturday, August 14, 2021

August 10, 2021 at 3:55 pm By:

Saturday, August 14, 2021

FCBD 2021

This Saturday, August 14, 2021 is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY for Comic Book Stores all across the country.

Typically, Free Comic Book Day would fall on the first Saturday in May and Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find would celebrate by inviting several of our favorite comic-book artists to join us for the day to sign comics and draw sketches.

2020 and 2021 have NOT been “typical” by any stretch of the imagination, and here we find ourselves celebrating Free Comic Book Day in one of the HOTTEST months of the year.

So, while we will have a limited stock* of Free Comic Book Day books to give away on Saturday, we will NOT be hosting Artists at our store this year.
(It’s just TOO HOT to ask Artists or Customers to stand outside in the heat.)

We will be limiting the number of people in the store on Saturday to 30 people at a time (including staff), and masks are required for EVERYONE regardless of vaccination status. This will be enforced throughout the event.

*It’s worth noting that Free Comic Book Day books were ordered many months ago, back when the pandemic made events even more tentative than they are now. As a result, we ordered fewer quantities of titles than we typically would, and will be limiting availability to all customers.

We appreciate your understanding and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!

HEROES SAFE SHOPPING UPDATE FOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 2021 :: MASK-UP!

August 6, 2021 at 3:26 pm By:

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 2021

MASK-UP-AGAIN

Due to the recent surge in cases of the COVID-19 DELTA VARIANT across the nation, and with increasing numbers of cases being reported in the Charlotte and surrounding areas, Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find will require that ALL CUSTOMERS, regardless of vaccination status, WEAR A MASK while shopping inside our store until further notice.

TRUST US, we don’t like it anymore than you do, but it’s the RIGHT THING TO DO.
Not just for us, but for our customers, and for the kids that shop in our store who are not currently eligible for vaccinations.

With FREE COMIC BOOK DAY coming up next Saturday, August 14, this is the ONLY OPTION for the health and safety of our customers and staff.

We encourage everyone to GET VACCINATED.
Here is a list of vaccination sites for the Charlotte and surrounding areas:

Atrium Health

Atrium Health Vaccination Events

CVS

Novant Health

Walgreens

Vaccine FAQ from the NCDHHS

Our entire staff is fully vaccinated and will be wearing masks until further notice as well.

We will keep our capacity to 100% unless instructed otherwise.
We still recommend that you put reasonable distance between yourself and others while shopping, because let’s face it, THAT’S JUST GOOD MANNERS.  

CONTINUED SAFE SHOPPING GUIDELINES:

  • We will provide hand sanitizer for you to use upon entering and exiting the store.  
     
  • Please be respectful of social distance and personal space while in our store.
    That’s just common sense. Don’t crowd others while shopping, it’s creepy. 
     
  • Staff will continue to sanitize and wash our hands as often as possible.  
     
  • WE ASK THAT ANYONE WHO FEELS UNWELL TO PLEASE STAY HOME. (This includes our staff!)
    That is ALSO good common sense. If you feel unwell, STAY HOME!
     
  • WE CAN SHIP!!
    We can ship to anyone, anywhere! (Well, anywhere that USPS or UPS delivers…so maybe not SPACE??)
     
  • OUR HOURS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:
    Monday-Tuesday & Thursday-Saturday: 10am-7pm

    Wednesday: 10am-9pm
    Sunday: 1pm-6pm 
     
  • Please follow us on social media (FacebookInstagramTwitter) or sign up for our Newsletter for regular updates!
    Please feel free to call us at 704-375-7462 or email us at [email protected] with any questions!
