We're giving people a place to come where they feel accepted. No matter what. Once the coveted happened within a day's notice, we were shut down. This is what's left of the Carolyn John's comic book shop staff. Um once your revenue stream is cut off, it's a completely different equation that you've never looked at before salaries utilities rents. We were essentially bleeding money. What are we gonna do Next? How long is this gonna go on one of my top priorities was trying to keep my two full-time employee. They've been around 1020 years. I could trust those boys and beyond that I need them around. I need them. I need them here to to run this place. We want to find a way to connect with our customers, so we basically built a Facebook live studio in my house. My wife thought it was crazy. She's like what are you doing? I'm like I just have to do something. I don't know if this is the right thing to do. I don't know if it's a good idea. I couldn't just sit there and let the business go down. so we have to try something welcome to our first ever Facebook live sale.

I'm gonna pull these books down and uh tell you a little bit about each book and I'm going to. Drop the price on him at that point, the first person to say claim for it will get that book.

Ellison wrote it too, who's known for writing the story that Ron Berry based Star Trek on He's also uh he also met Mom at one point and they got along splendid. Doing it perfect did not matter at all. you just gotta get yourself in front of the camera.

Hi Zach Uh there's a delay here. There's Matt. I mean it wasn't just about making money. it was about holding our community together. they needed that escape that they got from the comic shop. Each week and they would tune in they would tune in and they would purchase books and they would support the shop. We were able to keep our two employees for the entire time that we were shuttered. uh we'll be here during store hours, so please feel free to call with any suggestions and I have to believe that keeping my two employees around help the transition to reopening the store. Now that we're reopened, we use Facebook live every week to show all our new releases that hit our new comic book table right here is my pick of the week each week. I also do a state of the store address. Hey and welcome to the CJ Comics News desk for Wednesday, July 8. We finally started using Facebook live to its full advantage.
