Happy Harbor Comics was the first store in Edmonton to offer Fair Pricing on all comics; our practice of pricing all of our books
based on the Canadian Exchange rate at the time of our purchase. This means a fair price for everyone all the time with no memberships fees.
Every item has a price on it you can see so you know what you are paying before you get to the till.
We do offer file subscription services, based on your name, which gives the staff at Happy Harbor the opportunity to get to know who you are and what you like.
OUR ONGOING MEMBERSHIP DRIVE !!
Happy Harbor is dedicated to growing the hobby, bringing in new readers to help the industry stay healthy. We do as much as we can to attract new fans but we use your help! And that help comes with rewards!
Bring in a new customer who opens a file, meeting the criteria below, at any of our locations and we'll give you a $20 credit to your file! If after 3 months that new customer has kept their file in good standing, you'll both get a $20 credit to your accounts! It's just that simple and you've really got nothing to lose.
Hopefully this little nudge will be just what it takes to get that casual Buffy or World of Warcraft fan into the comic shop to see just how cool our past-time is! Don't delay, recruit now! The full conditions for setting up a file are as follows;
There's no charge for a file but we request pick-ups at least once every two weeks (see below for more details why).
As an additional benefit to having a file, we offer a 10% discount on all merchandise; t-shirts, toys, posters, statues and more (excluding consignment items)!
HH offers Western Canada's only online file customer service. You can view your account any time through our Online Hub. There you can see what's in your file, your current balance, what you have on order and more! Your file also gives you first preference on advance orders, which is helpful for those collectors of variant cover comic books.
Our FILES FIRST initiative gets you first crack at new comic collections that we purchase, movie passes, special sale offers, and keeps you in the loop about other cool community events that could use your talents and support! Make sure to follow us on Twitter and join our Facebook group for more great events and discussions!
Of course, we also take requests for special orders, online orders and offer a layaway service. Make sure to browse our website to see our IN STOCK page (with images for the merchandise) and our online advance order form from Diamond Distribution to help ensure you get everything you want. You'll also get email verifications to help you keep track of your orders.
Don't live in Edmonton? Happy Harbor does mail order throughout North America via Canada Post, so your package is insured and traceable. We mail out once a month, always upon the release of the latest PREVIEWS catalogue which typically happens on the last Wednesday of the month. We send out notices at least 4 days before shipping in case you need to make any adjustments.
Sound right for you? You can visit the store to fill out the file application, or download a File Application PDF and bring it in!
