Ten years ago, Steve Anderson of Third Eye Comics wrote for Bleeding Cool, “We have two locations in Maryland, one located in Annapolis, MD, and the other in Prince Frederick, MD.” Well today, Third Eye Comics opens its seventh store, in College Park, MD. Taking over and renaming the old Big Planet Comics, and opening the new store at 4744 Cherry Hill Rd, College Park, MD 20740 or, as they say, “in the mall with the BEST BUY & HOME DEPOT, right next to RT.1, and minutes from 95” whatever that means. And “we’re right next to Shopper’s Food Warehouse in the mall, so there’s a ton of parking just a minute’s walk from the store.” And how will it be?
Like many of our freshly landed Third Eye storefronts, this is a much, much smaller store than the store we are most famous for, which is our Annapolis location! However, how little Third Eyes grow into big Third Eyes is YOU, as you saw with our Lexington Park store expanding to become the 2nd of the Third Eye superstores. last summer, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re excited to see this store grow! That being said, this new location might be small in size, but it’s packed with comics, Funko POPs, manga, graphic novels, toys, and more, and we can’t wait to see which categories the market for College Park wants to see grow in our store! And, thanks to its proximity to Third Eye Annapolis, it’s very easy for us to transfer items from the Third Eye Mothership to Third Eye College Park if it’s an item they can’t normally transport. .
And they’ll be offering 15% off sales at all stores for everything other than the trading card game product and comic books starting with the June release, with an online code COLLEGEPARK15. They have a T-shirt for the new store, free for the first ten in line.
