L.A.’s Golden Apple Comics for sale on eBay

Golden Apple Comics

The owners of Golden Apple Comics have decided to exit the comics retail business and have put the Los Angeles-based comic shop up on eBay for $679,000.

According to the listing, owner Sharon Liebowitz is nearing retirement and wishes to divest herself for personal reasons. Her son, Ryan, general manager of the store, “is excited about the prospects of continuing his career that he put on hold in 2005 to run the family business.”

The sale includes the company logo and website, their customer database, various physical assets like computers and furniture, and more than $300,000 in existing inventory and collectibles. As a bonus, the shop is located right across the street from the world-famous (and awesome) Pink’s Hot Dog Stand, and the new owner will have great upstairs neighbors.

Check out the listing for more information. The details on what’s for sale are in an image, and if it won’t load for you on eBay, you can find it here.



It’s a sad end for a once great establishment. I do miss the old crew, that’s for sure

As sad as this sounds one can only hope whoever buys it keeps it as it is and doesn’t mess with a winning formula. Btw with all hate intended Pinks Is not worth the wait.

i spent the better part of the 90s in that store. bill was the heart and soul of it.

was never clear on why they moved away from the walking traffic.

i was able to walk to the store from my apt.

great atmosphere for geeks

really the end of an era….sad when things have to change
