The Comic Connection is a surprisingly large gaming and comic store located on Speers Rd. When we first walked in, we were amazed by how bright and spacious the store was. Each section is easily accessible and the staff were attentive and friendly.
While snacks and drinks were available, there was not a large selection. Chips, candy bars, and soda were readily from vending machines and the front of the store. What’s nice is that the sticker price is what you pay making mental math easier when keeping a tally of your bill.
The gaming space consisted of large card tables, and a number of spots. There is no table fee and you can bring whichever games you wish! The downside is that there is not a selection of games to choose from and it’s BYOG (Bring Your Own Games).
Accessibility wise, Comic Connection takes first place in accessibility. There is only one door to wrangle, inventory is an appropriate distance to allow for physical disabilities, there is plenty of light for the seeing impaired, the carpeting allows for a bit more sound dampening for less echoing.
What I’d love to see is an increase in accessibility such as an installed accessibility operator on the front door and a universal washroom to claim 100% in this category.
