Tugs Cards & Comics
Address: 555 10 Hwy, Drumheller, AB, T0J 0Y0
Telephone: 403-823-2175

This store has been visited August 2010.

In a town with a population around 7,000, Larry has operated Tugs from it’s mall location in Drumheller for at least 25 years. Named after his deceased feline friend, Tug, Larry considers his store to be a collectibles store. Comics are not the big seller in his shop, which carries a wide variety of product lines such as bobbleheads, action figures, sports cards, collectible cards, card games, posters, magazines and comics, each product line seems to be an almost equal part of the pie. A smattering of new release comics and a variety of 80′s to current back issues are in the store. Tugs is not the store to go hunting for back issues, or to buy the newest comic you can’t find, but I’m sure if you live in the area, Larry would be more than happy to bring in the comic you are interested in.

Happy Harbor Vol. 1shuster_awards_winners_jpg Retailer of the Year in 2007 [Facebook]
Address: 10729 – 104 Avenue, T5J 3K1
Telephone: 780-452-8211
Email

This store has been visited April 2012.

Status: They’ve moved again! New location as of November 1, 2011. Let’s see if a Happy Harbor location can stay in one spot for more than 2 years! Especially with Vol 2 now closed. Not long ago, there were 4 HH locations, now we’re down to one main store. A more focused approach will be good for the business, as over extending themselves with such a rapid expansion (and more rapid contraction) has split focus.

  4. One of your listings needs to be updated re: Tramps in Calgary. The location listed (indeed all Tramps locations) in Calgary have gone out of business. The one illustrated at Southland Crossing has been gone for about 18 months, at least. To my knowledge the only Tramps stores remaining are in Saskatchewan.
