20% off all toys this Wednesday, Scars of Mirrodin Release Party on Friday!
Hello loyal Jones' and welcome to another week of wonder and amazement courtesy of this fantastic newsletter. Some cool stuff going on these next few weeks. For starters the Magic the Gathering Scars of Mirrodin Pre-Release is tomorrow (Saturday) followed by the Release Party next Friday. We have a new and exciting raffle for the next couple of weeks for your chance to win a $75 gift certificate. In a few weeks we'll be trying something new in the form of the CBJ Swap Meet which you can find more information on below. To top it all off, in celebration of the enormous amount of toys and figures we'll be getting in this week we're offering 20% off all toys and other related goods this Wednesday instead of the normal 10%. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
The Picture Books Anonymous Graphic Novel Club will also be kicking off very shortly and we'll be offering some nice discounts and incentives for those who attend so be sure to check it out if you're even a little interested. All of this is great but don't forget the nice helping of new comics that are coming out, all of which you can find out about on the right as usual.
OUR TOP 5 PICKS FOR THIS WEEK:
20% OFF ALL TOYS, FIGURES, ETC. THIS WEDNESDAY!
We've got a ton of new toys coming in this week so we thought what better way to get on your good sides then to offer a 20% off discount on all toys and figures (and pretty much anything located in the toy aisles) including all the new stuff to be released that week! There's a lot of good stuff coming in so make sure you get here on Wednesday to pick it up before it's gone!
PICTURE BOOKS ANONYMOUS STARTING IN OCTOBER!
Come and join our new graphic novel club entitled Picture Books Anonymous! We'll be meeting once a month (one book per month) starting on Monday, October 4th. Your job is to read the book that's picked for the month, come in and have some meaningful discussion about it (moderated and run by the enigmatic Sprocket Jones)! Most of you come in here and do it anyway so I think it would be fun to get as many people involved as possible. Any books that are chosen for that month will be discounted for book club attendees. SO, with that said, if you are interested in being involved in the book club, send me an e-mail at email@example.com with your name and information. The first meeting will be a meet and greet, etc so no book will be assigned until that day. Come and check it out!
SCARS OF MIRRODIN PRE-RELEASE & RELEASE PARTY
The new set of Magic cards is upon us once again. Join us at the store on Saturday, September 25th for the Scars of Mirrodin Pre-Release Tournament. The sealed tournament starts up at 1pm and the cost to enter is $30 per person. All entrants will receive six Scars of Mirrodin booster packs (a full week before they're released), a deck box and special pre-release day promo cards. Prizes will be determined by the amount of participants. Make sure you arrive early to reserve a spot as seats are limited!
The following week on Friday, October 1st we will be hosting a Scars of Mirrodin Release Party that will consist of a draft tournament. It starts at 4pm and will cost $15 to enter, with each player receiving 3 booster packs of the new set. We'll have plenty of packs, boxes, intro packs and tons of other stuff including exclusive promos so make sure you make it down. The tournament will be capped at 15 people so make sure you get here early if you want to play!
CASUAL PLAY HEROCLIX ON SUNDAYS!
Taking place next Sunday, October 3rd we will be conducting free open play of Heroclix down at the store starting at 3pm. It will be casual play and will happen every other Sunday. As we gather more interest and participants in the coming weeks we will start conducting tournaments. Come down if you're interested in playing or learning how to play!
RETURN OF THE RAFFLE - $75 GIFT CERTIFICATE
Feeling lucky? Our whenever-we-feel-like-it raffle returns this week with the chance to win a $75 gift certificate to the store for the price of one ticket. Tickets are only $1 a piece and you can buy as many as you like. This raffle will begin now and last until Wednesday October 6th so make sure you grab some tickets in the meantime.
CBJ SUNDAY SWAP MEET
Many of you always ask us if we buy old comics and as you probably already know, we don't. But, we decided that we would give you an opportunity to try and sell some of your stuff at the store in a once a month thing we are calling the CBJ Sunday Swap Meet. Ideally, we would like this to take place one Sunday a month. For those interested in selling there would be a $50 fee which gets you a table and some space to display all your stuff. Obviously we would promote the day and you are welcome to handle the rest in any way you see fit. This could be a great opportunity to unload some books you've been sitting on or if you're a buyer find some key back issues or other stuff at a friendly and familiar location! If you're interested in either buying or selling, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and sound off!
