When Space Cadets opened in 2010, it had one main goal in mind: To create community within it’s walls. What you find there will be so much more than all the newest comics, toys and collectibles. You will find the feeling of family. Jen King, the owner, has a real heart for her customers. On any given day you will find her carrying around a baby and it won’t be hers. It will be a customers baby, as she loves any opportunity to give her patrons a break and a chance to shop hands-free (her own kids are teenagers and she misses the baby cuddles). Does your 7 year old want to learn how to play chess? Come on in and ask. She loves to teach. Don’t know how to use Ebay? She’ll plop you down in front of the computer to teach you. “I wanted to build a business where everyone felt welcome and felt comfortable to stay as long as they liked and to make life-long friends”, says Ms. Jen, as her customers call her. Ms. Vivian, owner of the Lava Cookie Café, inside of Space Cadets, also takes every opportunity to give comfort to her customers with amazing food and conversations. Want to have a half hour conversation about the which is the best movie musical? Ms. Vivian is your girl. No one is more excited about Pitch Perfect 2 than she is.
We found this great article about a professor who has the same attitude about his students and classes that Space Cadets has about it’s customers.
