Best Comic Book Store in The World is in Melbourne!

I am very pleased to announce that Melbourne’s very own All Star Comics has been voted best Comic Book Store in the World! This is yet another accolade that shows what a great place Melbourne is and another reason why Melbourne is the world’s most liveable city. Beating nominees from around the world, the boys snared the prestigious Spirit of Comics Retailer Award at the 26th annual Eisner Awards in the US (as joint winners with Legend Comics & Coffee in Nebraska). As a long-time comics fan, I have known All Star Comics owners Mitch and Troy for many years as a customer all the way back to the days when they were clerks at Comics R Us. And I am delighted they have won this award as it couldn’t have gone to a nicer couple of guys. They are true comic fans first and foremost, extremely passionate about what they do and it shows! In my opinion what sets All Star Comics apart as a comic book store are: Excellent customer service – Whether its tracking down a much needed title or providing selection advice, Mitch and Troy (and their assistants too!) always serve customers with a smile and show a genuine keenness to help.

H&M arrives in Melbourne

H&M arrives in Melbourne ! The global superstore opened to much fanfare yesterday and was greeted by thousands of Melbournians eager to check out this new shopping experience. A typical queue wait time – for most of the day – to get into the massive store was around 3 hours ! I do love shopping but personally, I think I shall wait for the buzz to settle down a bit and avoid the queues ! Located in the historic Melbourne GPO (General Post Office) building, this  iconic Swedish retailer is the latest in a growing list of new overseas stores to hit Aussie shores like Zara, Topshop, Muji and GAP just to name a few. I have been to H&M during overseas holidays and I reckon it is a nice addition to the department store landscape in Melbourne. It will be very interesting to see how the other big boys like Myer and David Jones react. Hopefully, it’ll just mean more BARGAINS for Melbourne shoppers !...
