1up comics & collectibles

We want to get a larger range of stock and furniture for the shop which will fill it out and offer more selection.

We did it!

On 23rd Mar 2018 we successfully raised £190 with 6 supporters in 56 days

All donations can also have their names put on our "leaderboard" wall of names  to say thanks for their help.

About us

We are a self funded store in Carlisle Cumbria specialising in manga, comics, graphic novels, statues, clothing and various collectibles and trading card games.  We have already invested money into the business and have our suppliers but we know it will be a slow and steady climb to get the shop to where we want it and we have a plan for what we want it to look like in a years time. We are passionate about all aspects of "nerd"culture and we strive to become Carlisle's hub of everything relating to it. Not only do we want to be a store we also want to  have a social aspect where people can come in have a seat and bond  over something they enjoy in a warm friendly environment.

Our plan

In our first 6 months we intend to:

  • Fully stock the shop with a large and varied range of products.
  • Add more shelving to accommodate more stock.
  • Add more seating to increase the social aspect.
  • Serve hot and cold drinks.
  • Set up customer loyalty cards.
  • Set up an online store.

By the end of the year  we intend to:

  • Have a gaming area with an Xbox and a Wii for multiplayer gaming where people who  want to socialise with friends or possibly make new friends can sit and enjoy some of the range of video games we will get in.
  • Have an arcade machine for customer use.
  • Host tournaments to win in store prizes.
  • Have an online store to reach customers not in Carlisle.

Where are we now

So far we have an open shop with some stock already as well as a booth for table top gaming and sitting.  We understand that it will take time but with your help we can reach our target sooner and we truly appreciate any help we can get.
