In December of 2016 the current owner plans to retire which means that Star Base would be closing its doors. However, to prevent this from happening, the store employees started holding fundraising events in 2014 in an effort to raise enough money to purchase the business. Using their own funds and resources, the employees have held picnics, several raffles and a Luau party. This year's efforts kicked off with an arts & crafts sale. A "Go Fund Me" Campaign was launched several months ago to supplement the other activities. Fund raising efforts will continue from now until November of 2016. If anyone would like to help, cash donations of any amount will be accepted at the store during normal business hours. Online donations can be made through the "Go Fund Me" campaign - please note that they do not accept personal checks- debit /credit cards only. Minimum donation is $5.00.
We would like to thank the Central Ohio Science Fiction Community for its continued support of Star Base Columbus. Our wish is that it will continue to be enjoyed by future generations.
Live Long and Prosper!
