JAMESTOWN – Ahead of the busiest shopping season of the year, one Jamestown area retailer is stocking up on all things toys to meet his customer’s demands.
As Black Friday and Small Business Saturday approaches, owner of Chautauqua Comics Al Steffens re-assures us that his inventory is unaffected by this year’s supply and shipping issues.
“I’m well stocked, and I’ve got plenty of inventory and all,” stated Steffens. “So they don’t have to worry about it. For those last-minute shoppers, stop here at Chautauqua Comics, we will be able to take care of them.”
Some of Steffens inventory includes Pokemon, Magic, Transformers, G.I. JOE, Star Wars, and many more toys and games, including toys nostalgic to the older audiences.
“We have all those antique toys right here inside the store,” explained Steffens. “You don’t need to go up to Buffalo or Erie, stop right here.”
With recent shipping issues shoppers may be fearful of not getting products that are on the many Christmas lists. Steffens tells us that there is no need to fear, because local businesses, including himself, have been stocking up on products ahead of the upcoming season.
“I’m on the phone daily with my suppliers, making sure that my customers have what they need for the holidays,” stated Steffens.
Chautauqua Comics will be open on Black Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Small Business Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
