A New Chapter

To all our friends, family, and loyal customers: It has been a fantastic seven years, but it is time to close the doors on our Downtown location. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us through thick and thin, and hope you will support our store in its new format. We will be opening an online store and will be partnering with the community and other businesses to continue to offer high quality service, products, events, and gaming! We are very excited about this, and hope you will stay tuned as we develop our new offerings. The details: Date: Kapow will be open until Give Back Friday on November 29, 2019. We hope to make this a huge day of sales, community fund-raising for the food bank, and a celebration of change. Please join us! Comic Files: Comic files are not over! We will deliver, ship, or meet you where you are. Kapow will make sure you still get your books every week, with an even higher level of quality service and deals than you are used to. We’ll be working even harder to make sure you know about all the great books coming out and make sure you can still get them, variants included! Please talk to us as you come in for your current subscription and we will work out any details. Online Store: This is being built as we speak! Follow our Facebook, Twitter, and blog at kapowltd.com for more information as it is developed. Gaming events: We are working with community partners and businesses and have some exciting plans in store. Also look for some Kapow run events in the future: Warhammer and minis tournaments, comic and collectible shows, Large RPG multi-table events and more. We did these before Kapow even existed and have only gained more expertise! Plus we are working on an entire online platform of Facebook shows and live auctions, streaming, a Youtube channel and more! These should be going in no time. For those doing consignment, please come clear your product and we’ll make sure everyone’s paid up. We will be doing very limited special orders going forward, prepaid only and from select vendors with quick shipping and whom we know already we will be keeping on such as Games Workshop, Diamond and Asmodee/FFG. Again, thank you all very much. This has been an amazing experience. We can’t wait to see what comes next!

Looking at the Horizon

The industry we are involved in: games, tabletop, comic books, is always changing and never faster then now. It takes a lot of constant adjustments to keep up let alone get ahead of the trends. At Kapow we are trying to stick ahead and have made some changes already. We’ve cut lines, picked up others and concentrated on areas we think will keep an LGS alive, namely becoming an experience.

Great event space and providing gamers and hobbyists with superb experiences are number one. We’ve seen GIGANTIC growth in this. Dungeons and Dragons has increased to two nights and we could easily run a third if we chose. Our Learn to Play Monday nights have been becoming more popular. Minis gaming, especially Warhammer 40k have seen explosive growth. Just half a year into carrying the product and we are running league events with sixteen players. And that’s not counting the Age of Sigmar players, Shadespire, etc. Plus we have continuous weekly X-Wing, Flames of War and Guildball play.

Keeping with the ever changing industry we are working on some other projects. The one we can talk about is rented shelf space ala consignment boutiques like our awesome neighbour Purple Hippo. While we are still finalizing details and will release them soon, this will be amazing for collectors and creators in between cons and expos. You’ll simply rent space monthly on our shelves and sell your product: toys, comic books, etc. We will have rates for both shelf space and for space for your comic boxes. You set the prices and your items get constant looks. It will be cheaper then most shows you do, but much longer! We will host all the transactions, with a small up charge for the customer when using credit/debit to cover machine and transaction fees. Pay attention to this space for more news shortly!

As well we have some really big events in the works. Free Comic Book Day will be our biggest ever. We’ve teamed with our awesome friends at Valiant Comics and will have our logo on one of their books! Plus we are working with local shops to make this a whole block party of fun! We are also working towards a fall event, hosting a massive miniatures and tabletop weekend with tourneys, demos and open play for a whole weekend in a larger venue. We’ve run similar events (Coulee Carnage) pre-Kapow and look forward to doing it again!
