To celebrate Small Business Sunday this week we’re showcasing a store that sprung to the Niagara stage in May of 2009. Having recently past its one year anniversary, it looks like this little comic-book-store-that-could is here to stay!

The story behind the creation of this store is a touching tale of heroism between father and son, and is available on their website here.  The long and shot of it is that Paul Tappay, 34, put together the business plan and went through no small effort to make the store a reality. After undergoing a procedure that gave his dying father part of his liver and a new lease on life, Paul settled on the store, which was always a dream of his.
