Saw this facebook post from Newbury Comics concerning their future as a brick and mortar business in the increasingly digitalized world. I found it interesting since most of the brick and mortar businesses that are surviving are those that are part of the long tail (independent record stores, video stores, specialty stores) as they seem to garner stronger support. But as is the case with many stores in the past and now with one of the biggest success stories, Newbury Comics now faces issues and find themselves in the scenario of debating how to go about keeping their business from dying in a CMC world. I find it interesting that they are using a survey to help figure out options. Hopefully they won’t find out that it is already too late.
