Between April 28 to May 5, Bizarre Entertainment is having a week worth of celebrations called, Bizarro Days, that is aimed at the customers of the store.
“I wanted to reward my customers and the area with a fun set of events and a great sale. It really started with international free comic book day which is held at all comic shops on the first Saturday in May. I thought it would be great to add more days and to combine the events with other stuff we could do at the store. I thought Bizarro World and Bizarro Superman were crazy characters when I was growing up and thought the title would fit great with Bizarre Entertainment,” said owner of Bizarre Entertainment, Trevor Hamre. “This is totally a week that has something for everyone. At the very least we have 10 per cent off all our merchandise all week with more off selected items each day.”
On Saturday May 4 it will be Free Comic Book Day at the store.
“Free comic book day is for everyone. The idea is that you can come into the store and we will have dozens of different comics to choose from. People can choose a few and take them home to read. We have comics for the young folks like Archie or Disney comics and for adults like the Walking Dead. It is also a day where we have a prizes for best costumed super hero or villain, either way we should have a prize for anyone that dresses up. It can often create a festive atmosphere and we usually post pictures of the contestants on our Facebook page,” Hamre said.
The free comic book day is not the only draw to the week long celebration.
“Free Arcade Day and Free Comic Book Day are especially a blast. Not to mention we are having a pre-release and a release tournament for the new Magic The Gathering set Dragonmaze,” Hamre said. “If it wasn’t for our customers we wouldn’t be in business. Bizarro days is a week where we can say thank you for doing business with us by offering discounts and events as an annual celebration.
