COVID-19 UPDATE FROM CCC
Okay, folks, it’s not a dream or an imaginary story… With the city of New Orleans going under a “Stay at Home” order, we’ll be temporarily closing both the Freret St. and Calhoun St. locations starting Saturday, March 21st.
What does this mean for the future? We plan to reopen whenever we’re allowed to, and if you currently have books on hold they’ll be there waiting for you. Over the weekend we’ll be working towards a streamlined online sales store, so keep an eye out for news on that front and perhaps mail order options, as soon as Monday.
As far as future new releases, we await word from Diamond about shipments. If we do receive shipments, we’ll perform pulls as normal and hold your books, as well as pull books for e-mailed lists like normal. With the Stay at Home order, it’s unclear if deliveries will be allowed to happen. If you’re reading this, you’ll be in position to see any future updates.
Some good news: none of us have exhibited symptoms or have had to self-quarantine, so right now we’re fortunate. Good luck to all of you! We hope to see you again in the shops as soon as possible.
Crescent City Comics’ flagship location is at 3135 Calhoun St.! Our vast selection of new comics, graphic novels, toys, models, prints, etc… is available at the Calhoun St. location. Our primary focus is providing a full-service comic shop for the great fans in New Orleans!
Our original post-Katrina location, at 4916 Freret St., is still open with a different product focus: games (board and card), apparel for all ages and comic-related toys and novelties, with a limited selection of comics and graphic novels.
