Star Port Comic store closing for good


LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Star Port, Lynchburg's last full service comic shop, will be closing after being on a business downturn.

According to the store's manager, the close is coming as online shopping has hurt their sales.

"Shop Local has helped to a degree, but it is not enough," Terry Stevens said.

Stevens added that the store has experienced a lot of loss due to shoplifting.

Their last full day of business will be August 15 with sales running through the last day from 10-percent to 40-percent off items.
