Participating retailers include The Astoria Bookshop, The Brass Owl, Broadway Silk, Château le Woof – Pet Market & Café, HiFi Records & Café, Inside Astoria, Lavender Label, Lockwood, Lockwood Style, LoveDay 31, Petals & Roots and The Stonework.

Some of the stores may be offering additional promotions.

Individuals who purchase an item for $25 or more and show their receipt at Q.E.D., which hosts comics and events, will receive a free ticket for themselves and a guest.
