Pegasus Books has finally gotten back to where we were in 2007. We beat that year by a very small percentage. Going into the downturn I predicted a 7 year turnaround, based on what I'd read, and sure enough, that is exactly how long it took to get back.
The holiday season beat last year, which I didn't think it would do.
Everything but game cards were up this year. Game cards are a nice sideline, but I refuse to discount more than I already do (and even now, Magic is the only product I significantly discount at all.) So there will be steady erosion there, and I don't much care.
Games had a good year again, and new books continue to increase.
Comics and graphic novels had a good year, and I attribute much of that to Cameron and Matt's efforts.
Even toys were up slightly.
The store seems steady and stable, if not spectacular, and in good hands and I feel like I can continue to write.
