Drawer Boxes coming soon?


Here's a product we're considering carrying at the stores... DRAWER BOXES!

These boxes look great and seem to be very functional... and everybody here at Comix Connection seems to think this is something people would want. What do all of you think? Due to their heavy construction and weight and attendant shipping costs, they would retail somewhere around $12-$14 EACH. From their website:

"DrawerBoxes™" are storage boxes designed for comics that fill from the end rather than the top. They are actually a two-part container, consisting of an outside shell that provides support and a drawer that slides out of the shell from the end. This eliminates the need to repeatedly move boxes to get the contents of the box at the bottom of the stack since all of the boxes can be opened just like a filing cabinet. And the shells are made of extra durable cardboard, reinforced in such a way that they will support much more weight than the old-fashioned long boxes. Yet, because each box is separate and has handles on each end, they are just as portable. DrawerBoxes can be stacked in any configuration you want and every comic in each drawer is still accessible. You can even remove the drawer in the box at the bottom of the stack and leave the rest of the boxes in place while you peruse your collection.

And here's a couple of reviews:

So what do you guys think? Is this something you would be interested in? Let us know! I'm an old man (oy, me aching back!), so these look to be more convenient than having to move 10 boxes to get to the one on the bottom of the stack. Pretty cool.

The look VERY COOL. I'm cramped for storage space, so depending on the actual dimensions, they might work perfectly. The only thing I'd be concerned about is whether the structure of the box could hanlde all the stress full "drawers" at the top would cause.

But I suppose it's just like stacking a bunch of regular boxes, huh?

Duh.

Read on, MacDuff! Apparently that is not a problem... these things are heavy-duty! Each one of these weighs five pounds alone...

Finally, somewhere I can pack all of these piles and piles of Amazing Spider-man #1 and X-men #1!
