Every business has a story. For some, they spring from years of planning and market research. Others are more about identifying and capitalizing on hot trends. But Downtown Tucker’s newest business has its own unique story: it came about by accident.
“I was a stay-at-home dad…and I started selling comics on Facebook,” Chris Brennaman recounts. “My soon-to-be partner Brandon Mealor thought I was in financial peril because ‘why would Chris be selling his comic book collection?’”
After a good laugh, the two comic book enthusiasts discussed their mutual desire to open a comic book store. Three days later their minds were made up and Infinite Realities: Comics, Games & More was born.
The shop, located on the southside of the intersection of Lavista and Chamblee-Tucker Roads just across from Tucker High School, is awash in excitement. It houses thousands of new and classic comics, fantasy games and action figures. It also features dedicated space for kids and adults to browse, play and connect with other comic fans.
“We want you to find a warm, inviting place,” Brennaman says. “We want you to find a place where you can discover new things…where your imagination, whether you’re 40 or four, can just be exploded by the cool things that you’re going to find here.”
As for the location, the Infinite team is glad to be in the heart of Tucker’s thriving downtown. Brennaman is just the latest new business owner to both live and work in Tucker.
“Tucker had never really been on my radar,” Brennaman recalls. “When we looked at our house here it felt right. Tucker felt like home…The more we spent time in this community, the more it felt like a community and I knew that Tucker was where I wanted to open a business.”
Infinite Realities: Comics, Games & More is located at 5007 Lavista Road. You can find them online at www.infiniterealitiescomics.com
