Via their Flog! blog, Fantagraphics has announced they will open their own storefront in Seattle this weekend:
The store unofficially opens Saturday. I say “unofficially,” because although it will be open to the public effective this weekend,it will be a “soft” opening as we continue to fine tune, add signage, fixtures, etc. But the books will be there and the doors will be open this weekend.
We will really pull out all the stops beginning in November, with a grand opening in early December. What I can tell you now: The store will contain everything Fantagraphics has in print, including our soon-to-be-legendary damaged room, featuring discounted and often out-of-print books unavailable anywhere else. The space also has room for exhibitions, which we’ll have more news about very soon.
You can find the store at 1201 South Vale Street in the Georgetown area.
