Doctor Who A Day In The Life Of Louise Jameson Tickets Almost Sold Out! ( 2014-07-30)
We will be joinging Louise as the Official Dealer for the event and from what I've been told there are less than a quarter of the tickets left. They can be booked from http://www.penarthpavilion.co.uk/events/a-day-in-the-life-of-louise-jameson . Just copy and paste this URL and meet one of the very best Companions from the 70s.
Tickets are now extremely limited so book now to avoid disappointment. I doubt there will be any tickets on the day.
Good News Everybody! Our prices are coming down! ( 2014-03-14)
Well having discussed this with quite a few people over the last few weeks and looked around to see what the competition is doing, we at Comic Guru Towers, are reducing our prices.
We are also changing the terms and conditions of our Standing Order Customers to reflect the price changes.
From the 20th March Delivery the following price points will change!
$2.99 used to be £2.20 but now they will be £2.00. $3.99 used to be £2.85 but now they will be £2.60.
Our prices went up during the crash in 2008 but now that we are settled, having reopened in the centre of Cardiff, we are now in a position to review our charges and start taking a bit more of a wider view of the Commercial Marketplace. We have always prided ourselves in offering the widest range of comics either online or within our physical shop. This is a genuine attempt by us to say that Comics are affordable and fun again. Whether its New 52 from DC or Marvel Now, Comic Guru will continue to offer the best service we can without compromising peoples wallets.
Our standing order customer discounts will change but they will see no more than a penny increase on the £2.60 comics and no change on the £2.00 price point.
I'll be instituting Credit Agreements for our Standing Order customers shortly and I'll explain everything to you personally at that time.
All the best, Kristian Barry
