Friday September 27th will be the opening day for the Walkersville location for Brainstorm Comics and Gaming. It is a soft opening with the Grand Opening scheduled for November 25th. We will have lots of events going on for the opening, so keep an eye out during the course of this week for announcements!
Our first major event will be the Pre-Release for Magic The Gathering’s Throne of Eldraine. Friday and Saturday will be held at the Walkersville location (with seating up to 44 players) and Sunday being held at The Historic Haven. The cost of the events are $25 each with pizza being provided for the Friday and Saturday ones.
FRIDAY begins at 7 pm, SATURDAY and SUNDAY both start at noon.
In addition, with a new location means new opportunities for employment. We are looking to hire 2 new employees. Ideally I’m looking for more comic oriented people but am open to hearing from everybody as we are always eager to talk to those enthusiastic about the hobbies we love.
For those positions, it is important that you can work at either location depending on the needs of the store. Whoever is hired may be working some shifts at the downtown Frederick location as well as the Walkersville one. It is important that who we hire has flexibility in that regard.
The work requirements for the position are as follows:
- assisting customers
- previous retail experience
- a knowledge base of the products we carry
- stocking shelves
- receiving products
- alphabetizing comics and games
- ability to carry 50 pounds
- ability to work independently
- bagging and boarding comics
- cleaning–mopping and sweeping
- ability to travel to Baltimore occasionally
- ability to work 20 to 30 hours
- must be 18+
