Randall Armstrong opened Thunder Road Comics in Tampa on March 1, 2013. The shop sells comics, T-shirts, toys, posters and other collectibles. We do an in store subscription service.
"I want to change the comic book industry," says Randall, whose store also offers in-store subscription services. "My favorite part of my business is meeting new customers. I love what I do. I love the talent behind the product. I love the happiness and joy it can bring."
Before starting his own store, Randall worked in retail for more than 10 years. "I want to build a future for myself, create something I can use to better my life," he says, explaining why he leaped from corporate to entrepreneurial world. "I want to stand on my own."
