How it was then... and how it is now!
Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff first opened on October 3, 1988...
33 years ago!
Our first customer was a kind gentleman named Tony who bought a few packs of baseball cards. That opening day we did all of $63 in sales (truly a soft opening!). We made up a lot of things as we went, trying to invent little systems where there were none before, trying to make friends and win customers one at a time, one day at a time... hoping we could survive long enough to "make it."
And here we are... 12,052 days since October 3 1988!
We've tried our best to make Flying Colors live up to our original mission to be "the one comic shop for the entire family." Little did I know that so many of you have become like family to us. That's a beautiful thing!
Heaping mounds of gratitude to my Libby who has been as integral to the success of Flying Colors as anyone, even though she prefers me to be the public face of Flying Colors. I was the comics geek, after all.
And then there's our FlyCo
Retailing Brigade (with thanks to cartoonist Jeff Bonivert for originally
naming the group... plus designing and co-creating our Flying Colors' superhero
mascot, Captain Four Color!
In order from 1988 to present, I wish to thank each and every one of our frankly fabulous FlyCo Retailing Brigadeers:
Anne, Mark, Teri, Tom, Steve, Scott, Scott, Sam, Doug, Gavin, Jason, Marleigha, Alan, Cara Mia, Quinn, Shaw, Matt, Ken, Colin, Chris M, Adrian, Jerry, Erin, Paul, Chris J, Maria, Jan, Robert, Mike A , Mike E, Adam, Melissa, Taylor, Brian H, Brian, Cindy, Adric, Jenny, Robert, Andrew, Ed, Marty, Jazmine, Leticia, Melissa, Susie, Aaron, Kenni, Casey, Anna, Eryn, Spencer, Dylan, Chad, Andrew, Aidan, Cyrus!
Finally, let's face the facts.
A business without customers just doesn't last. So I want to genuinely thank you all, past and present, who have trusted us with your business over all these years. You are all FlyCo Faithful... and I am FlyCoJoe, your grateful Local Comic Shop owner.
And I hope we'll be around for many more years of Slinging Comics to Concord, to Contra Costa County and to the Cosmos!
Bless you all, each and every one!
Peace 'n' Comics!
