The Daily Planet is MOVING!!!
We’ve been working nights on a new design/layout and are proud to say we’re moving on to nicer digs:
This will be the blog home for Forbidden Planet NYC, our brick and mortar store located at 832 Broadway in Manhattan between 13th and 12th Streets, and our online store for those of you who can’t make the visit.
While it will contain a (mostly) complete archive of the articles FPusaDailyPlanet has published, we’ll also be expanding coverage and adding some nifty new features as The Daily Planet develops in its new home. We’ll also be setting this site to re-direct to our new one, making old articles exclusive to the new site.
I strongly encourage you to keep an eye on that space, and thank you for your continued readership!
It’s true! It’s happening! The great movin’-ing is upon us!
In just under 2 weeks, we will be officially in our sweet new digs: 832 Broadway (between 13th and 12th streets) in Manhattan’s Union Squ-area.
But you don’t have to take my word for it; here’s video proof. Boxes! Empty shelves! Broad expanses of wall-space with neither boxes nor shelves!
And finally, a very quick sneak-peak into the new store!!
This is the body of a press release I just sent out, folks:
Forbidden Planet NYC is moving!
New York, NY July 2012- Forbidden Planet NYC, one of the world’s largest and most acclaimed sellers of comics, graphic novels, toys & other collectibles since 1981, is moving locations four doors down from its present location to 832 Broadway (between 13th and 12th streets) in Manhattan’s Union Square area.
FPNYC has occupied two other locations on the same block since its inception, but at 3400sq. feet our new location will be our largest incarnation yet. This expansion has been necessary for some time now, and will allow us to provide our customers with even more product selection and depth, while streamlining the store’s layout to one convenient floor.
Forbidden Planet NYC will open at 832 Broadway on Tuesday, July 24th 2012 in a “soft launch,” with a more grandiose opening some weeks following. Our final day open on the corner of 13th St. (840 Broadway) will be Sunday, July 22nd.
…Thank you for supporting Forbidden Planet NYC throughout the years!
More later. Now I gotta go. LOTSA work to be done.
BTW, here’s a digital mock-up of what the new location’ll look like.
