Comics and kind­ness in store

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

For the last two years I have worked respite with a cou­ple of chil­dren with spe­cial needs. One of th­ese chil­dren is a 13-year-old autis­tic boy who loves Poké­mon trad­ing cards, so a trip to the lo­cal comic book store is a weekly out­ing for us.

We fre­quent Galaxy Comics on Hen­der­son High­way for our Poké­mon fix. Ev­ery time we go, the staff is so kind and help­ful. They al­ways spend time help­ing us with find­ing cards, let us spread out and take up their counter, make con­ver­sa­tion, re­mem­ber what we like and are very sweet and kind. They wel­come us into the store and ask us how we have been, comment on his T-shirts, and an­swer all our many ques­tions. This makes my day! They are not only kind to my 13-year-old, but to ev­ery per­son who comes in. I just want to thank Galaxy Comics and its staff for go­ing above and be­yond what it is to be a comic book store.
