Spandex City is a hobby store specializing in comics, collectibles, and trading card games. They are located at 2914-A Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road in Charlotte, NC. The shop doubles as an ice cream parlor; carrying a selection of ice cream flavors for a milkshake, sundae, or cone. When visiting Spandex, you will find a few pinball machines and tabletop play space as well.
Spandex is a great place for local comic enthusiasts to purchase new issues and related memorabilia. They can backorder any available comics for customers who missed a new release. In addition to comics, Spandex sells booster packs, boxes, and related trading card game merchandise. You can buy sealed product from the latest set of Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering.
If you are interested in planning Pokémon or Magic: The Gathering with other players, Spandex offers multiple events each month. You can check their store calendar (link) to see a list of upcoming events by day. The staff at Spandex do a wonderful job running events for participants of all ages.
One of the main reasons I visit Spandex is because of their employees. Their manager, Jeremy, is a great person that goes out of his way to ensure each customer has a positive experience. He remembers customers by name and invites them back for a future visit. The other employees at Spandex follow his lead by offering the same level of customer service. I recommend visiting Spandex for all your super hero and trading card game needs in North Charlotte.
